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. Carla

    Just made them, they’re delicious! Can you freeze these? If so how, parchment and gallon bag? Thanks!

    • Madhuram

      I think so, Carla. I haven’t tried freezing pancakes thus far.

  2. Alissa

    These are really good! I realized after buying new baking powder that fresh non-expired baking powder makes a huge difference!!

    • Madhuram

      Yes, it does, Alissa.

  3. Heidi Mahl

    These are better than my recipe with eggs, and I added pumpkin spice in place of cinnamon. Delicious!!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks for the feedback, Heidi.

  4. Ashley

    “These are the BEST pancakes I’ve ever had!” said my biggest kiddo. And thr whole family agrees! So easy to make and they taste delicious. We added a touch extra cinnamon. They taste like a donut with less grease. Yay!

    I really appreciate that they are egg free without using an egg substitute since.

    Thank you, thank you!!

    Any chance you have a gluten-free version of this already?

    • Madhuram

      I’m so glad that your family loved these, pancakes, Ashley. Gluten-free works too. I don’t think I have the recipe for it here, but I have tried the same recipe with gluten-free baking mix too. This gluten-free, flourless banana pancakes can also be a good option if you are willing to try, Ashley.

  5. Kristin

    These are fabulous! I put a couple smashed raspberries in each one after I poured the batter onto the griddle.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks for the feedback, Kristin.

  6. Faith V.

    I will admit, I am one of those people that made these pancakes simply because I didn’t have any eggs. I made these today, and they were DELICIOUS! Fluffy, flavorful and easy to whip up, I will have to keep this in my pancake rotation even when I have eggs! I wanted to experiment and add matcha powder to it (because I was originally looking for an egg-free matcha pancake recipe) but I wanted to make the base recipe first to make sure they turned out well. They did, and I will try matcha pancakes next!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for the detailed feedback, Faith. Matcha pancakes sounds interesting!

  7. Antonia

    I love them ☺️ Taste like French toast

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Antonia.

  8. Ly Linda Ha

    The first couple of times I made them they were fluffy but the next time, they were flatter. Any tips on on how to make them fluffy?

    • Madhuram

      Make sure that the batter is not thin. It has to be pretty thick.

  9. Namrata

    Me and my kids loved it..I think by far best eggless pancake recipes that I have tried. The pancakes turned out yum and fluffy. I am curious to try out the same batter to make waffles too. Thanks

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Namrata.

      This is a blog, all the stuff that comes before the recipe is to be expected, and is what gives each blog a different personality.

      • Madhuram

    My husband has an egg allergy. This is great.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you.

  15. shannon

    Can I make the batter night before and put in fridge

    • Madhuram

      Yes, you can. You might have to add a few tablespoons of water in the morning if the batter gets too thick.
