Perfect Buttermilk Pancakes | Emeril Lagasse


Perfect pancakes are not hard to make! Just make sure you have buttermilk and a whisk, Emeril’s essential tools for making this easy brunch favorite.


1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
Pinch salt
1 ¼ cups buttermilk
1 large egg
2 tablespoons melted butter, plus more for griddle
2 tablespoons finely grated lemon zest, plus additional for serving
1 pint blueberries, washed and patted dry
Room temperature butter, for serving
Maple syrup or orange blossom honey, for serving
Thinly sliced lemon, for serving

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a medium bowl, whisk buttermilk, egg, and melted butter until thoroughly combined. Add dry ingredients to the buttermilk mixture and whisk until just combined; batter may still have a few lumps. Fold in the lemon zest and allow the batter to sit for 10 to 30 minutes or up to overnight.

Lightly butter griddle and heat over medium-low heat. Working in batches, pour ¼ cup batter onto hot griddle for each pancake (you can cook 2 to 3 pancakes at a time on the griddle). Place about 2 scant tablespoons blueberries on top of each pancake and cook until the batter bubbles and is golden brown around the edges, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip pancakes and continue to cook for about 1 minute longer. Transfer pancakes to a warmed platter or baking sheet and keep warm while you repeat the above process with the remaining batter and blueberries. Serve the pancakes hot, with butter, any remaining blueberries, syrup or honey, and lemon slices.

  1. So it was too much trouble to give the ingredient amounts in this 7+ minute video? I'm calling BAMM on that s**t!

  2. like previous posters mentioned pancakes not cooked,this guys hopeless, almost burned on the outside ,raw inside,he should be ashamed of himself,refilm it .

  3. Anyone notice the last blueberry dropped on the pancake still had its stem? Yikes! That one was probably crunchy. lol

  4. Either the griddle is too hot or the batter a tad too thick or both. It's a mistake I've made before, especially when in a hurry and neglected to adjust the heat properly and/or the amount of liquid in the batter before ladling. I like Emeril so I'll let this one go as a bad experience that happens to all of us. Try blueberry or mixed berry syrup on these….soooo good.

  5. I've tried this and since buttermilk was sold out I made a substitute and baby still taste great. I'm in heaven! 😋Thanks Emeril! 🤗💜

  6. Ok, I don’t think this is quite his specialty. The griddle temp was spot on (medium low-keeps them golden, not brown or dark brown, while the batter cooks), but he must have hit the knob or something, because the pancakes were burning on the outside and still raw in the middle. I love that he kept says “Light & Fluffy!” “Light & Fluffy!”

  7. Raw on the inside and blueberries are sweeter after they’ve exploded inside the pancake. Emetic is a great chef, but he obviously doesn’t cook and eat many pancakes.

  8. I rarely see pancakes 🥞 that dark but they’re still good and I usually mix my blueberries in with the batter so they’ll be within the pancakes.😀

  9. He knows what hes doing you doofs! Hes just going thru the motions for the camera and to teach people the process to inspire them to cook
    He knows how to make pancakes ffs! Lol
    I wish his show would come back its still the best food show ever! Aside from iron chef japan and man v food lolx2

  10. I sooooo miss seeing you on T.V. 😥🤒☹️. Love & Miss you badly & wish you could be back on the tube. You are #1 & The Best. 💖💖💖💖💖💖💖

  11. Emeril learned this recipe from me been making pancakes like this for many years. Only problem Emeril was always in a hurry and left them a little undone. Guess he was just always hungry.

  12. He doing all this when I just use any pancakes with water my joints are fluffy almost better then ihop bro you doing to much 🤦🏾‍♀️

  13. I'm not the pro chef here, but isn't it pretty well known that you should leave some lumps in the batter, to achieve better texture in the cakes? Pretty sure I've heard that from many sources.

  14. I don't eat pancakes without bacon or
    sausages. Some was undercooked, but they still look good. I love Emerald and been watching his shows since '95.

  15. Really sloppy work. Barely no measurements and he overbeats the batter causing more gluten to form. Also, I hate when people simply put a hard square of butter on just one or two pancakes. The idea is to spread soft butter over all the pancakes so it seeps into the pancake, not just sits on top of one unmelted.
