Hannah’s Pancakes

Bev Heinecke of San Anselmo, California, writes: “Many of our favorite family recipes come from my mother-in-law, Hannah, who was a wonderful cook. When my sons were younger I made her chocolate macaroons and pancakes all the time. I don’t make them quite as often as I used to, but they’re still a hit with my husband.” The fluffy texture of these tender pancakes comes from folding beaten egg whites into the batter.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Additional melted butter
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • Pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) or more unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups whole milk

Instructions:

  1. Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt in large bowl to blend. Whisk milk and egg yolks in medium bowl to blend. Whisk milk mixture into dry ingredients. Add 2 tablespoons melted butter and whisk until batter is smooth.
  2. Beat egg whites in another medium bowl until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, beating until stiff but not dry. Fold whites into batter in 2 additions. Heat nonstick griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Brush generously with additional melted butter. For each pancake, fill 1/4 cup measuring cup half full and drop batter onto griddle. Cook pancakes until bottoms are brown, about 3 minutes. Using spatula, turn pancakes over and cook until bottoms are brown and pancakes are cooked through, about 2 minutes. Transfer to plates. Serve warm with syrup.
