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. Diane

    I will make these today If I don’t use all pancakes today can I put in the fridge for the next day ? Thanks

    • Madhuram

      Yes, you can Diane. I do it all the time. I warm it up in the microwave oven before serving.

  2. Alexandria Urgo

    Would coconut oil work instead of vegetable oil?

    • Madhuram

      Yes, it will. Sometimes melted coconut oil when added to cold ingredients solidifies in bits and pieces. That might be an issue though.

  3. Jayshree Dheda

    Absolutely delicious. Thank for sharing.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Jayshree.

  4. Mari

    I didn’t like this recipe. Firstly, it was way too thick for the batter to flatten in the pan enough to make a pancake – it sat in the pan like a tall tower! I added more milk to thin out the batter. Secondly, it made 5 pancakes. Which is never enough. Thanks for the recipe though.

  5. Animal

    I was amazed at how good they came out! The only thing I did was double the recipe. Light and fluffy and vary tasty! Definitely going in my saved recipes!
    Thank you!

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome.

  6. Alicia

    Are you able to use canola oil instead of vegetable oil??!

    • Madhuram

      Yes, you can use any oil with neutral flavor.

  7. Ally Lincoln

    Just delicious. Halved the recipe and guessing I made a mistake because it was thick (so I added more milk) but still turned out amazing!!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Ally.

    • Jayson

      Did you half it because you only wanted 3 pancakes? That’s too little!

  8. Liberty

    This is great for my daughter. Thank you. I made it and put some chocolate chips. I love it so I hope my little one will love it too.

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Liberty.

  9. Kelly

    My kids gobbled them up ! My son has an egg allergy and we are always searching for eggless recipes that still taste good . This one was wonderful.
    Thank you

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Kelly.

  10. Callan

    Can you use this recipe to make waffles?

    • Madhuram

      I haven’t because I make the best waffles using this vegan waffles recipe, but don’t see why this pancake recipe shouldn’t be used to make waffles as well.

  11. Lya

    Hi my son has an egg allergy and dairy too.. I was wondering if I can substitute the butter with something else .. thank you so much for this recipe

    • Madhuram

      Yes, you can use oil instead, Lya. I do it all the time.

  12. Saturday

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for the feedback.

  13. Angie H

    Just started having issues with an egg allergy, made these this morning for my family & 2 kids I watch while out of school. Everyone LOVED them!! Followed your recipe (doubled it) other than left a little bit of milk out, stopped when the consistency was perfect.
    Thank you for posting this, will be trying some of your other egg less recipes!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks for the feedback, Angie.

  14. Jimbob

    Can I just add more milk to make thin pancakes

    • Madhuram

      Yes, you can.

  15. Angie

    Wanted pancakes but realized I was out of eggs. Made this today. Absolutely wonderful recipe! I have a bit of a sweet tooth so I used 1/8 cup of sugar. I added chopped pecans. Will definitely be using this recipe again. Thanks!

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Angie.

  16. B

    Can we make a premix of this and keep? How long can b keep?

    • Madhuram

      Sorry, I’m not sure. The maximum I have kept is overnight. Sometimes I prepare the batter overnight and make the pancakes for breakfast the following morning.

  17. Teresa D

    Low on eggs I scrambled to find an eggless pancake recipe and came across this one. It did not disappoint, it’s a keeper! The pancakes fluffed nicely and had a great taste. I must admit I made some changes; instead of milk I used soy, instead of sugar I used Truvia blend, and instead of 1/4 tsp of cinnamon I used 1 tsp.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks for the feedback, Teresa.

  18. Paige

    Thank you for this recipe. Everyone loved it and I have 4 kids including a picky one. Just found out my 8 month old is allergic to eggs and peanuts and needed a new recipe.

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Paige.

  19. Jay

    Absolutely delicious

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Jay.

  20. Joy

    Hey would these work with whole wheat flour?

    • Madhuram

      Yes, it does.

  21. Jon

    I cannot thank you enough!! I’m an avid cook and I never eat pancakes , these are amazing!!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Jon.

  22. Maddy

    Can the batter be refrigerated and used over a few days?

    • Madhuram

      Not sure about few days, Maddy. I have just done it overnight.

  23. Diana

    I halved the recipe and it still worked perfectly. Sometimes batters don’t always work out that way. Like You said definitely need a small bit of syrup or honey but otherwise they are delicious!!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Diana.

  24. Jordanna Hertz

    This recipe Would probably be fine without so much baking powder. I think it’s may be a typo?

    • Madhuram

      It isn’t. The recipe works great as it is.

    • Arjun

      These really are the BEST pancakes. I don’t think you can get better ones at the supermarkets. ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS. Before you start cooking them, however, you might have to adjust it a bit with the milk and water. THANK YOU for this simple and quick recipe.

      • Madhuram

        You’re very welcome, Arjun.

  25. KayL

    Out of eggs, I searched online for an eggless pancake recipe and this is the first one that popped up. It was delicious. I had to cook them on very low heat so that they cooked all the way through. Thanks for sharing this simple recipe!

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Kay.
