Tempura Style Batter

Adapted from Gardenguru (Joe)

1 cup flour

1/4 cup cornstarch

1 teaspoon baking powder

Salt and pepper

1 to 2 egg yolks (optional)

Soda Water or beer


Mix the flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt and pepper together.  Beat egg yolks (if using) and mix with soda water.  Add to flour mixture.  Add enough soda water to make a batter that is slightly thinner than a pancake batter.  Note:  I prefer a thinner, crispy, tempura style batter, for a thicker batter use less soda water.
