Alton Brown is the host of the best show on The Food Network, Good Eats.

He doesn't own a Restaurant (as far as I know of) but you'll forgive me as soon as you taste these wonderful, light and fluffy pancakes.

Alton Brown's"Instant" Pancakes

Ingredients
2 Eggs, separated
2 cups Buttermilk
4 Tablespoons melted Butter
2 cups "Instant" Pancake Mix, recipe above
Butter for greasing the pan
2 cups Fresh Fruit such as blueberries, if desired

Directions
1. Heat an electric griddle or frying pan to 350 degrees F. Heat oven to 200 degrees F.
2. Whisk together the egg whites and the buttermilk in a small bowl.
3. In another bowl, whisk the egg yolks with the melted butter.
4. Combine the buttermilk mixture with the egg yolk mixture in a large mixing bowl and whisk together until thoroughly combined.
5. Pour the liquid ingredients on top of the pancake mix.
6. Using a whisk, mix the batter just enough to bring it together. Don't try to work all the lumps out.
7. Check to see that the griddle is hot by placing a few drops of water onto to the griddle. The griddle is ready if the water dances across the surface.
8. Lightly butter the griddle. Wipe off thoroughly with a paper towel. (No butter should be visible.)
9. Gently ladle the pancake batter onto the griddle and sprinkle on fruit if desired. When bubbles begin to set around the edges of the pancake and the griddle-side of the cake is golden, gently flip the pancakes. Continue to cook 2 to 3 minutes or until the pancake is set.

Serve immediately or remove to a towel-lined baking sheet and cover with a towel.
Hold in a warm place for 20 to 30 minutes.

Yield: 12 pancakes. .
