1 cup whole-wheat flour 1 cup all-purpose flour 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 2 cups buttermilk 1 large egg, separated 1 tablespoon canola oil 2 large egg whites 2 tablespoons sugar

  1. Stir flours, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Whisk buttermilk, yolk, oil and vanilla in a separate bowl. Add wet ingredients to the dry, stir until moistened.
  2. Beat 3 egg whites in a grease-free mixing bowl with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Add sugar, beat until stiff and glossy.
  3. Whisk 1/4 of beaten egg whites into batter. Fold in remaining egg whites with a rubber spatula.
