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. Jennifer

    Thank you for this recipe. I was wondering if the pancakes were freezable. If so, how long?

    • Madhuram

      I haven’t tried freezing it, Jennifer, but I think it should be fine.

  2. Ross Parker

    I used buttermilk and canola oil. Made them smaller like a New Zealand pikelet and served with jam and cream. Best pikelet recipe with no eggs ever.

    • Madhuram

      That’s awesome, Ross. I can’t wait to try your version.

  3. Gracie

    I agree this is thr best. Tried and nailed it.

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Gracie.

  4. Awanti

    I followed your recipe and Omg these turned out better than any pancakes I’ve ever made, even those with eggs!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks for trying, Awanti.

  5. Sabryna

    Best pancake recipe ever! I wanted to make pancakes and have no eggs so I looked up eggless pancakes and found this recipe, and was not disappointed at all! Whenever I make pancakes I want them quick and easy so I usually buy the just add water mixes. I didn’t have any on hand so decided to look up a recipe. I ended up changing the recipe a little as only had vanilla soy milk on hand but was perfect because I only had 1/2 tsp left on vanilla extract left! Which ended up working out perfect! No longer will I eat just as water pancakes ever again.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks for the wonderful feedback, Sabryna.

  6. Crystle Cloud

    Some of the best pancakes I’ve ever eaten! I’ve tried this recipe twice now and it’s a keeper. Both times I did not add melted butter to the mix and they turned out great. I use butter on the pan while cooking each pancake. This recipe is perfect for two people with leftovers for the next morning.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Crystle.

  7. Cecelia

    My daughter had a friend spend the night and they wanted pancakes. Uh oh, no eggs so I looked up and found this recipe. Turns out I had no milk either so I substituted Almond Milk. Turns out no butter either but I had some vegan butter sticks that I got to try but never used. So in the end vegan pancakes. They turned out great. Kids loved them and one of them is a really picky eater (but loves pancakes).

    • Madhuram

      That’s awesome, Cecelia. Thanks for giving it a try.

  8. g

    hi this looks Delicious to try. question, are there other options to try instead of vegetable oil? could you use olive oil or grapeseed oil? and come out with good results still? thanks in advance.

    • Madhuram

      Yes, you can use any oil of your choice.

  9. Vanessa

    I stumbled across this recipe after wanting to cook pancakes but I had no eggs. Best best recipe ever! Better than my old go to. I think the cinnamon makes the recipe. Many thanks.

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Vanessa.

  10. Kenya Peters

    Can you use full cream milk?

    • Madhuram

      Yes, you can.

  11. Mrs Wright


    • Madhuram

      Thank you.

  12. Christina

    This was a great recipe! I used almond milk, whole wheat flour, and grapeseed oil instead (what I had). Even threw a mashed up banana in there! It turned out great! Will definitely be using this as a staple in the kitchen. Thank you!

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Christina.

  13. Deb

    I would like to try your recipe. Would almond flour be okay to use in place of the all-purpose flour?

    • Madhuram

      It won’t work out measure to measure because almond flour is gluten-free. I have tried it.

  14. Suzi

    Thanks for this great recipe! We ran out of eggs and had a pancake craving and your recipe saved the day! My only complaint is that one batch only made 3 big pancakes so I’ll need to make a double batch next time but that’s easy enough

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Suzi.

  15. Sai Prasanna Baskaran

    Awesome recipe!

    I am a newbie when it comes to non-Indian cooking (and cooking in general) and this recipe is so simple and perfect! I didn’t have to make any second guesses!

    I substituted almond milk instead of regular milk, and added chocolate chips on top of the pancakes along with maple syrup for extra flavor!

    Thank you!

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Sai Prasanna.

  16. Naadia

    I made these today for my three boys and they loved it, they didn’t even know the different because they are such pancake lovers. I ran out of eggs so I decided on an eggless one and found your recipe so I’ll b happy to say this one is a keeper.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks for trying the recipe, Naadia.

  17. Mary Elizabeth

    The smell of egg makes me feel nauseous so this recipe was just the best solution. Thank you so much. Can honey be used instead of sugar?

    • Madhuram

      Yes you can try, Mary.

  18. Heather

    Made.these today and they’re turning out great! Had to add a little flour but turned out perfect after that. Might be because I live in an extremely humid climate. Thanks for this!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks for trying, Heather.

  19. Halima

    Tried these today and they turned out awesome!!! Thanks for the recipe

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Halima.

  20. Russ

    Can you use this recipe in a waffle maker?

    • Madhuram

      Yes, it will work, Russ.

  21. Rashid

    I have to say this recipe is amazing I tried it today and it was very delicious so thank you very much, but I have noticed that you need to cook the pancakes on a low heat so they cook through.

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Rashid.

  22. Judy

    I used this recipe and this is the first time my eggless pancakes ever turned out almost perfect. Light, fluffy and delish. Thank you. I did add a little extra flour as it may have been too runny.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Judy.

  23. Christina

    My daughter and I have tried many no egg and vegan pancake recipes, none came close to a pancake with egg and milk. We have been using this recipe for almost one year and we love it.Thank you for this recipe, I alter it for my daughter that has allergies soy milk for cow milk. We also make waffles with the same recipe.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for the feedback, Christina. I’m glad that your daughter can enjoy pancakes and waffles.

  24. Vidushi

    I absolutely loved this recipe! I found it in April and have made it over 10 times since. I’ve found that it is still great without any of the fats (butter and oil) if you’re watching your cholesterol, and the milk can be subbed for a plant milk, if you’re going for a vegan option. So so good!! Thanks for this!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks a lot, Vidushi.

  25. Glen

    Omg I tried this recipe for Fathers Day and everyone loved it! They’re asking me to make pancakes every weekend now, wonderful recipe!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you so much, Glen.
