The Best Eggless Pancakes Ever & Video

4.9 from 114 reviews

It has been 3 years since I started this blog but I don’t know why I haven’t blogged about something as basic as eggless pancakes until today. My husband and I are not big pancake fans. I do prepare it once in a month or two for my son. Initially I used to buy Bisquick; add some mashed bananas or applesauce for the eggs and add extra baking powder. Then I tried a couple of right-from-scratch recipes minus the eggs and wasn’t very pleased with the results. Later I found a wholegrain pancake mix, to which I had to just add water and viola the pancakes were ready. Those living in Canada can find this mix in Bulk Barn. The mix is egg free.

Last morning my husband asked me to prepare pancakes for breakfast because we don’t have that in the blog. So making it would serve two purposes. I landed on this recipe and after reading the raving reviews I had to try it. The verdict is: “these are the best eggless pancakes you will ever taste”. To tell the truth I haven’t actually tasted a regular pancake with eggs (yes after 8 years in North America, I haven’t tasted it even once) so I cannot compare it with that, but I’m pretty sure that these pancakes are as good as the usual ones. A couple of reviewers have tried this recipe because they ran out of eggs and they are all praises for it, which means that these pancakes are definitely good. I also tried a vegan version of these pancakes and they turned out very good as well. I’ll blog about it pretty soon.

Prep time: 15 Mins
Cook time: 10 Mins
Yields: 6 Small Pancakes
If you want to make eggless pancakes for some reason or the other, this is the only recipe you should be trying. Don’t waste time searching for recipes and going through each one of it.
  • 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Teaspoon Sugar
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 Cup Milk (I Used 2%)
  • 1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Water
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  1. Whisk together the dry ingredients.
  2. In a liquid measuring mug, measure 1 cup milk. To that add the vegetable oil, water and vanilla extract.
  3. Stir in the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients. Do not over-mix. Lumps are perfectly fine. Set aside for a couple of minutes.
  4. Heat a griddle at medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot add the butter and let it melt.
  5. Add the melted butter to the pancake batter and return the pan to the stove. Mix the butter into the batter.
  6. When the pan is hot enough, pour a ladleful of batter on the pan for each pancake. Cook until bubbles appear on the face of the pancake.
  7. Carefully flip the pancake and cook until its golden brown.
  1. I have said it earlier and I’m going to say it again, these are THE best eggless pancakes. Light, soft and fluffy! You have to have some syrup or something to sweeten it because its not sweet by itself. But I guess that’s how pancakes are supposed to be.
My Notes:
  1. The pan should not be over-heated or else the pancakes will blacken. To get that nice golden color I usually have the knob at 4.
  2. I added a couple of blueberries to the batter. You can add about 1/2 a cup of nuts, fruits or chocolate chips for this measurement.

    My boyfriend and I have been loving this recipe! For 9 months, it seems to work fine and produced the best tasting pancakes I’ve ever eaten. However, recently, every batch that we’ve made comes out uncooked on the inside. I don’t know how this could happen all of a sudden when it was working perfectly fine before. We added 2 Tbsp of water instead of 1, because the batter was thick and we like our pancakes thin. The pancakes still turned out great back then. Now, even when we’re following the recipe exactly, the outside seems cooked, but the inside are always uncooked. We’ve also tried lowering the heat on the griddle to medium to give it more time to cook, but still no change. It would be great if you could help us figure out what we’re doing wrong. Thanks.

      That’s weird! I think the griddle is not hot enough to start with. Being from India, we do a lot of savory pancakes (dosas if you know) at home and if the griddle is not hot enough it does not cook well. So try heating the griddle at a higher temperature initially (for 3-4 min) maybe and then bring it back to medium while preparing the pancakes. I heat the empty griddle at 5 first and when I start making the pancakes bring it down to 4, that way the insides are cooked and the outsides don’t get burnt too. Hope this helps.

        We asked our friend (who loves baking) to make the pancakes for us following your ingredients list and he got it to cook properly again. He lowered the temperature to 300′F and flipped it earlier (onset of bubbling). The pancakes turned out perfectly cooked and delicious.

    Hi, thank you so much for recipe.
    I always wanted to eat pancakes but could never try bcoz it has eggs. .
    And the quest ended with your wonderful recipe.
    It turned out really great.

    I have one question, can I make these with wheat flour instead of all purpose flour..
    I understand there will b taste difference but will texture be the same.

    Thank you.

    • Madhuram says:

      You’re welcome Swati. Yes you can use whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour. I do it all the time.

    I wanted to make pancakes but realized that I was fresh out of eggs, so when I found this recipe I was relieved! And even more so, they were super easy to make and cooked perfectly! To top it off, my boyfriend and I liked them much better than my usual ones with egg! They were cinnamony and delicious! Thanks so much for the recipe! I think I just might adopt this and make my pancakes this way everytime!

    • Madhuram says:

      Thank you very much Marina. That’s especially wonderful to hear from a person who normally uses eggs. Thanks for taking the time to give your feedback.

  8. Vini says:

    I want to add mashed bananas to the pancake batter. Any idea what changes i need to make to your recipe?


    • Madhuram says:

      You can just add it Vini. It’s not a big deal. You might want to add some water or milk to adjust the consistency.
