Ingredients

2 c
a.p. flour
2 Tbsp
brown sugar
1/2 tsp
salt (less or more to taste)
1 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
baking soda
3/4 dash(es)
finely chopped pecans, toasted if desired
1 c
buttermilk
3/4 c
milk
2 large
eggs, separated
1/4 c
melted butter
vegetable oil
pecan halves (optional) or fruit (to garnish) (optional)

Step-By-Step

1In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, soda, and chopped pecans.

2In another bowl, whisk together buttermilk and milk, egg yolks, and melted butter. Blend into the dry ingredients just until all ingredients are moistened.

3Beat egg whites in another bowl until stiff peaks form.

Fold into the batter until well incorporated.

4Heat a small amount of oil in a large skillet over medium heat (or use a griddle to make more at a time).

5When 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.

6When 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.

7Serve hot with butter and syrup and garnish with pecan halves or fruit, if desired.
