  • ¼ cup sugar

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt

  • 1 ½ cups whole milk

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, butter, and egg until combined. Stir milk mixture into flour mixture until just combined. Let batter stand, uncovered, 20 minutes.
