The Best Eggless Pancakes Ever & Video

(from 176 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 to make egg free pancakes. Then I tried a couple of right-from-scratch recipes minus the eggs and wasn’t very pleased with the results. At that time I was not able to find a decent pancake recipe without eggs. Later I found a wholegrain pancake mix from Bulk Barn, to which I had to just add water and viola eggless 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 egg free pancakes for breakfast because we don’t have that in the blog. So making it would serve two purposes. I landed on this homemade pancakes without eggs 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. So if you have run out of eggs are do not want to use eggs and are wondering how to make pancakes without eggs, here's the only recipe you have to try.

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.

  1. I use Ener G Egg Replacer. No dairy, no egg product Vegan. I have used in most of t=my baking
    muffins, cookies, Vegan Meat loafs and most everything that calls for egg. I found the Product and
    Fred Meyers.

  2. This recipe is spot on! My grandson was just diagnosed with an egg allergy, so we’re looking for substitute items we can send send with him to day care. I’m ready to try a cake recipe for his 1st birthday cake

  3. These were quite good. I ran out of eggs and this recipe provided nice fluffy pancakes. Definitely ones to eat with syrup or another topping. Not sure how I felt about the cinnamon and vanilla extract, so might try it without those next time, but will definitely be making these again!

  4. Followed to the T, came out with great fluffy texture but taste was waaaaay off. Idk how people who normally use eggs give this recipe praise, but next time i will go out of my way to get some eggs! Im sorry, but to my taste this was just NOT American style pancakes at all.

  5. These were great & fluffy. Can be easily made vegan with almond milk etc. I added a little cocoa powder for enhanced taste! Thank you

  6. So many great reviews here, imo they are overselling these. I have made eggless pancakes with a different recipe that were much better. Wasted calories on cheat day. :(

  7. Just made theses with Pamela’s gluten free pancake mix and just reduced the baking powder to 1/2 tsp and used applesauce in lieu of the vegetable oil, and they were great!
