Fluffy Pancakes

Beaten egg whites make these pancakes fluffy. Serve these wonderful pancakes with your favorite syrup and butter.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • vegetable oil


In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and soda.

In another bowl, whisk together buttermilk and milk, egg yolks, and melted butter. Blend into the dry ingredients just until all ingredients are moistened.

Beat egg whites in another bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold into the batter until well incorporated.

Heat a small amount of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When skillet is hot enough for a drop of water to sizzle, scoop pancake batter onto the skillet in about 1/4-cup portions, spreading slightly. When edges are rather dry and bubbles are popping and bottoms are nicely browned, about 2 to 3 minutes, turn over and cook the other side until browned, about 2 minutes longer.

Serve hot with butter and syrup.

Very yummy & fluffy, Member debcyn

I think whipping the egg whites made all the difference. I cut the milk to 1 cup and added cinnamon since we didn't have any vanilla in the house. The kids loved them and I thought they were really good too. I will definitely make these again, next time with vanilla! The pancakes came out fluffy and golden brown. Almost picture perfect!
