"With flecks of pecans in each bite, these light, tasty pancakes are an elegant morning entree," relates Jann Braun of Chatham, Illinois.


  • 3 eggs, separated
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 to 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2/3 cups buttermilk


  1. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks and butter. Combine the flour, pecans, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to the egg mixture alternately with buttermilk. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into batter.
  2. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a lightly greased hot griddle; turn when bubbles form on top of pancakes. Cook until second side is golden brown.
