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 whole grain 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. Twinkle

    Thank you for posting this recipe. I was looking for egg less recipe as we don’t keep eggs at home. I made this first time and it turned out great. I served it with Chocolate syrup. My son loved it. I used Ghee instead of butter as I had no butter at home and sweetened it a little with two tbl spoon of sugar.

    • Madhuram

      That’s awesome, Twinkle.

  2. Hayley

    Just curious – have you ever premade the batter and then frozen it and used it? We’re going on a week long camping trip so looking for things that can be kept frozen and then just thawed overnight and have it ready to go. Thanks!

    • Madhuram

      I haven’t frozen the batter but frozen the pancakes. I think that would be a better idea for you to take it for camping too. Don’t you think so too, Hayley?

  20. John

    I usually make french toast or waffles from scratch for my picky kids. Finding we were out of eggs after starting the bacon I panicked. Found this online and reluctantly made it because the kids don’t like pancakes. They give them and ” these are really really good.” Next time with chocolate chips.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much, John.

  21. Lydia

    This is my favorite recipe for pancakes!! I make it all the time. I also add frozen blueberries. And I love the cinnamon in the recipe.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for the feedback, Lydia.

  22. Rakesh chapatwala

    For how much time we have to keep the pancake mix before we cook

    • Madhuram

      No specific requirement like that, Rakesh.

  23. kurt schwarznau

    Not bad at all. I made these because at the last minute I came to the realization that there were no eggs in the house! I did double the sugar and cut down on the baking powder, just too metallic tasting. So buttermilk was substituted for whole milk.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks for the feedback, Kurt.

  24. A.R. Boothe

    Hi well i didnt have eggs so i searched for an egg substitute. I found a few substitutes for eggs but i didnt find one that i could use with what i had on hand. I found one but it called for shortening an water and baking powder or baking soda not sure . But i didnt want to put more shortening in it so . I searched for an eggless pancake and i ran across this recipe. So i tried it but i doubled it an instead of the water it called for i used milk. I would have to agree with the person who posted recipe. It was delicious i will use it from now on . I will use less cinnamon though next time but they where great . Thanks a bunch for shareing recipe

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for the feedback.

  25. Tee

    Awesome recipe!
    I substituted the cinnamon for brown sugar and the vanilla extract for condensed milk as i did not have these ingredients, but they still turned out quite nice!

    • Madhuram

      I haven’t used condensed milk in this recipe. Is your review for the eggless vanilla cake by any chance?
