Emeril Lagasse shared his recipe for Buttermilk Pancakes with Good Morning America.


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (plus about 1/4 cup for the pan)
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat the oven to 220° F. Sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt into a large bowl. Add the buttermilk, egg, and 1 tablespoon of oil, and stir just until blended, being careful not to over mix. (Lumps are OK.)

    Heat a large heavy skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Add enough oil to lightly grease and leave a film on the bottom of the pan.

    Ladle the batter into the pan in batches of about 1/4 cup each. Cook until golden brown and bubbles start to form on the top side, about 2 minutes. Turn and cook on the second side. Transfer to a baking dish and place in the oven to keep warm until ready to serve.
