    3/4 cup stone-ground yellow cornmeal
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    2 1/2 cups skim milk
    1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
    2 large egg yolks
    1 tablespoon canola oil
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    3 large egg whites
    Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 350░.

Combine first 4 ingredients in a large saucepan; stir in milk and hot sauce. Cook over medium heat until thick (about 15 minutes), stirring constantly. Place egg yolks in a medium bowl. Spoon 1/2 cup hot cornmeal mixture into egg yolks. Stir egg yolk mixture into remaining cornmeal mixture. Add oil, stirring until combined.

Place baking powder and egg whites in a medium bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold one-fourth of egg white mixture into cornmeal mixture. Fold remaining egg white mixture into cornmeal mixture. Gently spoon mixture into an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350░ for 40 minutes or until lightly browned and puffy. Serve immediately.
