1â�„2 tsp. baking soda
2 eggs, separated
2 TBS canola oil or light olive oil
13â�„4 cups fat-free buttermilk
Blend together dry ingredients in a large bowl with a wire whisk or fork. Beat egg yolks, buttermilk and oil together in a separate bowl. Add to dry ingredients and stir just until blended.
Beat eggwhites until stiff. Fold whites into batter. Let stand 5-10 minutes while preheating griddle or electric frypan. Pour about 1â�„4 batter for each pancake and let cook at high heat, turning only once, after edges have become dry.
For waffles, increase oil to 1â�„3 cup.
