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.

    Amazing recipe! I used whole milk and brown sugar, added chunky chocolate chips, and it turned out perfectly. Delicious! So light and fluffy, I hardly had to press my knife down to cut it. Paired perfectly with some cool milk and a good book. Pouring the butter back into the dough was a neat trick! Very fun.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Dov.

  2. Teri

    Excellent! My daughter is allergic to egg, so I’ve tried many recipes. These are fluffy and tasty and you don’t miss the egg at all! I made 3x the recipe and freeze in packs of three. A quick zap in the microwave and breakfast is ready. I just wish I could print it easily bc I don’t want to lose this recipe.

    • Madhuram

      Wow! That’s awesome, Teri. We used to have a print option. For some reason we removed it, don’t remember why. Will ask my husband to look into it again.

  3. Carrie

    Tasty! I subbed brown sugar and added frozen blueberries. First batch was a bit thin and too moist- my griddle temp might not have been heated enough. The rest of the batches turned out nicely. I doubled the recipe and next time I will use even less oil/butter- I only used 2 TBSP butter for a double recipe because the batter already looked thin (possibly due to the blueberries thawing in the batter). They brown very nicely though and taste great. Thanks!

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Carrie. Yes the griddle has to be hot enough to get thick and fluffy pancakes.

  4. Amie Poindexter

    Can i substitute water for milk?

    • Madhuram

      Yes, you can, Amie.

  5. Carlee

    I made this for my 5 PICKY children this morning. They loved them! (I added mini chocolate chips). Trippled the recipe to toss leftovers in the freezer. Everyone loved breakfast and had seconds!

    • Madhuram

      That’s wonderful, Carlee.

  6. Abigail

    Ran out of eggs too. Pretty good. They are fluffy. I’d add more salt, (Though I do tend to add salt.) They did make six small pancakes but if I was feeding anyone other than myself, I would have made more. But the fit what I wanted, which was eggless pancakes.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks for trying the recipe, Abigail.

  7. Vaidehi

    Thanks. A quick breakfast for kids who r very choosy. Goes good with Nutella ! I added some sprinkles n kids were so happy. Have to try it with maple syrup… Im sure It will taste good.

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Vaidehi.

    • Aira

      Hi! I’m glad I found your recipe! I’m planning to make one for breakfast tomorrow and I just wanna ask, if I wanted more servings and will double the ingredients, do I also double the measurement for baking powder? We are 8 in the family and I wanted to make a lot of pancakes lol. Thank you in advance for the help!

      • Madhuram

        Yes, you will have to double the baking powder as well, Aira.

  8. Samantha chee

    Really fluffy. Unbelievably fluffy and tasty!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Samantha.

  9. Alex Chavez

    These taste better than ones at a restaurant!! So happy I found your recipe. I cant wait to try them with bananas in the mix next!

    • Madhuram

      Wow! Thank you very much for the kind compliments, Alex.

  10. Giovanna

    I’ve made this recipe so many times at this point, i can’t keep count. I buy organic eggs so it hurts me to use eggs in so many recipes. Also i run out of eggs alot because my husband LOVES eggs so this recipe is a perfect fit for us the day before payday. Thank you!!!

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Giovanna.

      You’re very welcome, Ray. Thank you very much for the feedback.

  15. Michael Spatafore

    We made these pancakes this morning and they were outstanding. I substituted applesauce for the oil and used half wheat flour and half white. My granddaughter has an egg allergy and couldn’t tell the difference. This will be my go to recipe from now on. As others have said,no more box mixes! Thank you

    • Madhuram

      That’s wonderful, Michael! I can’t wait to try the applesauce for oil variation of the recipe. Thank you for letting me know.

  16. Peter

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Peter.

  17. Sharanpreet Kaur

    I tried them and they turned out amazing!!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much, Sharapreet.

  18. Paula

    Thanks for this! I used evaporated & choco soy milk ’cause I ran out of regular milk, & omitted the butter too but still turned out great. So fluffy! I don’t think I’m going back to boxed mixes.

    • Madhuram

      Chocolate milk sounds like an amazing idea, Paula. Thanks for the tip. Now I can’t wait to try it.

  19. maya menon

    Amazzing i added a combination of wheat and all purpose flour…and i ran out of vanilla so substituted i teaspoon of instant coffee..i also added 1tsp of coco powder
    It turned out amazzing

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for the feedback, Maya. I’m also going to try the cocoa powder and coffee powder combination.

  20. Nic

    I can’t thank you enough for posting this. My 3 year old has an egg allergy so he’s never been able to have pancakes(we tried those fancy eggless brands and they were disgusting).
    This recipe has the taste AND texture of panocakes with egg and now my son is thrilled that he can eat pancakes!

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Nic. Thank you for trying the recipe and taking the time to leave a feedback.

  21. Erik

    Like everyone else on the planet, I consider myself a pancake connoisseur. These pancakes are terrific! Thank you for sharing. It’s great just the way it is. Nice job!

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Erik.

  22. Alison Smith

    My mix seems awfully thick, I can barely paddle it out, is that normal?

    • Madhuram

      Hi Alison, it shouldn’t be too thick. Don’t expect it too be thin too. A bit thicker batter will only give fluffy pancakes.

  23. Eve

    So delicious thank you!! I have an egg allergy and my boyfriend didn’t notice the difference between these and normal egg pancakes!

    • Madhuram

      That’s awesome, Eve.

  24. Sunita

    Wonderful first time I tried pancakes homemade n it came out like professional thank you so much and without the eggs it came out lovely

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Sunita.

  25. Gretchen

    Have you tried making this with gluten free flour 1:1 flour? Do you think I will need to add anything to make up for the loss of gluten? Thank you in advance!

    • Madhuram

      You can use gluten-free baking flour mix in place of all-purpose flour and I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. That has worked in other recipes. You may also try this gluten-free banana pancake recipe I have.
