   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    5       lg           Eggs
    1 1/4   c            Milk
    8       oz           Yogurt, plain
                         -(I use Dannon and
                         -Knudsen -- other brands
                         -might require different
                         -amounts)
    4       ts           Baking powder
      1/2   c            Vegetable oil (or less
                         -for dieters -- but use
                         -at least 2 T)
    2 1/3   c            Flour, white (measure
                         -carefully after sifting)
    1       tb           Sugar
      1/2   ts           Salt
 
   Preheat griddle and oil very very lightly.  Separate
   the eggs; beat the yolks in a bowl big enough to hold
   the whole recipe. Add the yogurt and beat again; add
   the milk and oil and beat again. Rinse the eggbeater.
   
   In a separate bowl, mix all the dry ingredients
   (flour, baking powder, sugar and salt). Sift together.
   I use a flour sifter for this, but if you insist on
   measuring your flour without sifting it, then you can
   try using a wire whip to blend the dry ingredients.
   Using a clean eggbeater, beat the egg whites until
   they are fluffy.
   
   Dump the dry ingredient mixture into the big bowl
   containing the milk mixture, stir for about 2 seconds
   just to get the dry ingredients under the surface of
   the liquid, and then dump the beaten egg whites into
   the big bowl.
   
   Now beat this mixture lightly and slowly with a fork
   until it is more or less uniform. If you beat too
   much, or too fast, then it will get gummy. Don't try
   to get rid of lumps. Cook on the hot griddle.
   
   NOTES:
   
   *  Amazingly good baking-powder and yogurt pancakes --
   Cooks like to show off by making fancy glamorous
   recipes to serve to their friends by candle light.
   Here is a simple ordinary recipe to serve to your
   family for breakfast in the morning.
   
   I love pancakes and I make many varieties and I am an
   inveterate experimenter. This recipe is the one I have
   developed over the years to replace buttermilk
   pancakes because I never have buttermilk on hand in
   the refrigerator like my grandmother did. I made this
   recipe this very morning with blueberries in it. I do
   have yogurt in my fridge, though, and the yogurt can
   substitute for the buttermilk. Yield: Serves 4-6.
   
   *  I like to put fresh blueberries in these pancakes
   after I pour them on the griddle. Make sure that your
   maple syrup is hot and that your butter is soft. You
   can heat syrup in the microwave or you can heat it by
   sticking the syrup jar in a pan of boiling water.
   
   *  This same recipe also makes really good waffles if
   you reduce the milk to about 1 cup, but if you are
   going to make waffles, you shouldn't cut back on the
   oil. If you are dieting, stick to pancakes.
   
   : Difficulty:  easy to moderate.
   : Time:  10 minutes plus cooking time.
   : Precision:  measure carefully.
