Makes about 10 pancakes.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.

In a separate bowl, beat egg yolks with oil, buttermilk and apple juice. Stir into flour mixture. Add chopped nuts and Maraschino cherry juice and stir until until all ingredients are moistened.

In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff and fold into the batter.

Spoon onto a hot, greased griddle or skillet and turn once when bubbles appear.

These are great topped with powdered sugar, whipped cream and cherries! Works wonderfully with traditional butter and maple syrup too!
