Directions:
In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Add buttermilk, egg yolks, and vanilla. Whisk until smooth. In a large bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy; gradually beat in sugar until whites form stiff, moist peaks. Carefully fold whites into yolk mixture.

Heat an electric griddle to 350, or place a griddle over medium heat. When griddle is hot, brush lightly with butter. For each pancake, spoon about 1/2 cup batter onto griddle. Turn cake over when bottom becomes golden brown. Cook until golden on second side and edges feel dry, about 7 to 8 minutes total. Serve at once. Offer whipped cream and powdered sugar to add to each portion.
