Recipe by Chef Kate
READY IN: 40mins




  • Beat the yolks until pale and smooth.
  • Beat in the buttermilk and then the baking soda and mix well.
  • Sift in the dry ingredients mixing as you add; make sure the batter is smooth.
  • Add in the melted butter and mix well.
  • Beat the egg whites in another bowl until stiff.
  • Fold into the batter until no bits of white are visible.
  • Let batter stand about 20 minutes before making pancakes.
  • Make sure your griddle is really hot (the old water droplet test).
  • Ladle batter onto griddle; turn when bubbles form across the cakes and allow to lightly brown on the second side.
  • Serve with warm maple syrup and sweet butter.
