And your ingredients, of course!
This is what I ended up using:
2 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cup white sugar
3-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 eggs, separated
1 cup milk
3 Tbsp butter, melted
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1 whole mashed banana (very ripe)
1/4 cup water
As you can see if you checked out the base recipe, I had to improvise on a few things by adding the banana and water for a bit of liquid and flavor due to being short on milk. I also used WAY LESS butter. I do not regret it! Adding banana to anything always makes it taste better and enhances the texture.
In a large bowl: combine flour, sugar and baking powder.
In medium bowl: lightly beat egg yolks. Then add milk, butter and vanilla; mix well.
Slowly stir into dry ingredients until combined.
In a small bowl: beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Slowly fold into batter, take your time!
This is when I added my mashed banana, followed by water. It helped the batter to thin out.
