Eggless Pancake Recipe

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 the 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 on 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.

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.

I also have a vegan pancake recipe, the vegan version of the best eggless pancakes recipe. Do try it!

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
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 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. Susan

    My pancakes did not turn out fluffy but they were so good! I made them this morning with sausage links on the side for my family. It was a very enjoyable meal! Thank you!

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Susan. The batter has to be quite thick for the pancakes to turn out fluffy. Try adjusting the quantity of liquid next time.

  2. Katherine

    I made these pancakes for breakfast today and they were wonderful. I omitted the cinnamon & water, and substituted buttermilk for 2% milk, whole wheat flour for all-purpose flour and increased (tripled) the sugar to one tablespoon of brown sugar. Also, this recipe is easy to make for one person. My single pancake version of this recipe is the following:
    1/4 cup whole wheat flour
    3/4 teaspoon brown sugar
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/16 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup buttermilk
    3/4 teaspoon oil
    1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 tablespoon butter
    Follow the same directions except only make one pancake and cook it on medium heat. Also, I don’t pour the melted butter back into the batter. I just use the melted butter to grease my pan.

    • Madhuram

      Wow! That’s amazing, Katherine! Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback and recipe.

  3. Dylan stull

    My mom has celiac disease and can’t eat anything with flour in it. Can you make this recipe but gluten free no eggs?

    • Dylan stull

      P.s. also thanks for the recipie it turned out great!!

      • Madhuram

        You’re welcome.

  4. Ritu

    Turned out great! Added some blueberries and mashed banana to the mix. Can it be made using wheat flour (aata)? What will the proportion be? Thanks!

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome Ritu. Yes you can use whole wheat flour.

  5. Aya

    I made these pancakes today because I ran out of eggs! They tasted really good! The texture was just perfect. Definitely recommend this recipe!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks for the feedback, Aya.

  6. Lyn Brown

    I made these pancakes for Easter Brunch..with blueberries…and they were outstanding! My one son has egg sensitivities and usually spends his time in “his office” after having eggs but not this time! The pancakes were light and we made a triple batch for 5 adults wirh only two left over. Definitely a keeper!

    • Madhuram

      Wow! That’s great to know Lyn! Thank you very much for the feedback.

  7. Fairytailfan

    Can we use olive oil instead of vegetable oil?

    • Madhuram

      Any neutral flavored oil can be used.

  8. Aarti Kapadia

    It tasted very bitter in the end.. I guess the 2tsp baking powder is too much.

    • Madhuram

      It has to be something else Aarti. I have made this recipe a 1000 times and still do it. Was the baking powder you used stale, past the expiry date? Did you mix up baking soda and baking powder? These are few things that go wrong usually.

  9. Sasmita

    Hi. I tried the pancake and it turned out to be very nice. So soft. Only thing it gave a bitter taste. Not able to know the reason.

    • Madhuram

      Did you check the expiry date of the baking powder and the measurement?
