Cinnamon “Toast” Cloudcakes
Adapted from Cook’s Country

Yield: 25 Small Pancakes
155 g. All-purpose flour (1 1/4 c.)
35 g. Sugar (3 Tbsp.)
5 g. Baking soda (1 tsp.)
5 g. Salt (3/4 tsp.)
2.5 g. Ground cinnamon (1 tsp.)
285 g. Low-fat buttermilk, at room temperature (1 1/4 c.)
57 g. Sour cream (1/4 c.)
2 ea. Large eggs, separated, at room temperature
2 ea. Extra egg whites, at room temperature
29 g. Unsalted butter, melted and cooled (2 Tbsp.)
As Needed! Vegetable oil, for cooking

In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cinnamon together. Add the
buttermilk and sour cream to a large measuring cup and whisk to combine. Whisk the egg yolks
and melted butter into the buttermilk mixture until well combined.

Add the egg whites to a medium bowl. Use a hand mixer to beat them to soft peaks. Pour the
buttermilk mixture over the dry ingredients. Whisk until just barely combined - the batter should
be lumpy. Use a rubber spatula to fold the egg whites into the batter, again until just barely
combined. It's fine if a few streaks of egg white remain.

Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet set over medium heat (or spray with nonstick
cooking spray). Once the oil starts shimmering, use paper towels to wipe the pan so only a thin,
even coating of oil covers the bottom and sides. Use a 1/8 cup measure (2 tablespoons) to
portion the batter into the pan. Cook on the first side until the edges are set and bubbles form on
the surface, about 2 minutes. Use a spatula to flip the pancakes and cook for an additional 2
minutes on the second side, or until golden brown and cooked through. {If not serving
immediately, transfer the pancakes to the wire rack in the oven.} Repeat with remaining batter,
adding more oil to the pan if necessary.

Cook’s Note: If you aren't going to serve the pancakes until you've cooked all of them, preheat
oven to 200 F. Spray a wire rack with cooking spray and set it inside a baking sheet then place
the baking sheet in the oven.
