1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1/4 cup canola oil
2 large eggs, separated
2 cups sliced banana, berries, or raisins
2 cups low-fat vanilla yogurt
