How to Make Fluffy Pecan Pancakes


  • 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.
