DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Oil a cast ironskillet and heat in the oven while you make the batter.
  • Sift dry ingredients into a large bowl.
  • Whisk together buttermilk and corn syrup until well blended, add skim milk, whisk again. Whisk in yogurt until just dissolved.
  • Beat egg whites until stiff.
  • Pour milk mixture into flour mixture and stir well.
  • Fold in the egg whites.
  • Remove skillet from oven, spray with Pam (or melt a bit of butter in it). Pour in batter and bake about 15 minutes till lightly golden. Serve warm.
  • NOTE: It is important to use a pre-heated cast-iron skillet. I've tried other dishes but it won't seem to cook properly in anything else.
