1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 large eggs, separated
2 cups buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup sugar
2 star fruit, sliced thin
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled, divided


1. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Add egg yolks to buttermilk and combine with dry ingredients.
2. Whip egg whites with cream of tartar and sugar until soft peaks form. Fold whipped egg whites into batter mixture.
3. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Brush pan with melted butter. Place three or more star fruit slices down on hot skillet; top each slice with approximately 2 tablespoons of batter. Cook until pancakes begin to form bubbles. Carefully turn cakes with spatula and cook until bottom side is golden brown. Repeat with remaining butter, star fruit and batter.

Star fruit are also known as carambolas. They are available from Florida in fall and winter.
