Separate eggs and place whites in large bowl. Beat with electric mixer until stiff peaks form.
In a separate bowl, beat yolks, add sugar, salt, buttermilk, flour, bkg soda, and baking powder.
Using a rubber spatula, lightly fold beaten egg whites into egg yolk mixture. Do not over mix.
Heat pan over med/low to med heat.
Use a little crisco in each "whole" in pan (this is how my grandma & aunt did it, so it's good enough for me).
Add approx 1/4 cup of batter to each "whole." The batter should be about level with edge.
When they begin to look a little dry around the edges, carefully turn with a fork.
Cook until golden brown all over.
Add a little more crisco to pan and repeat cooking process.
Sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy!
