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.

    These were delicious

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Taksal.

  2. Brandy

    Great recipe! I sub almond milk to make them dairy free and they are perfect every time.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Brandy.

  3. Rocio

    Turned out really tasty! I’ll probably use more bakimg powder next time to make them a little fluffier, but i love them!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Rocia. Actually this quantity of baking powder itself makes fluffy ones. Sometimes it might be too much baking powder. So try increasing a tad bit and see how it turns out.

  4. Jordan

    Delicious egg free recipe!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Jordan.

  5. Rosie

    I made these this morning for my husband and I after a bad day yesterday. They were tasty, fluffy and delicious! Usually when I make eggless or vegan versions of things they turn out rubbish, but these were better than I expected. I used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil and topped with syrup. Yum!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Rosie.

  6. twila knoll

    These turned out absolutely beautiful! I used Spelt flour and used 2 tablespoons of yogurt and 3/4 cup of whole milk, added a teaspoon of agave syrup, and I used algea oil instead of vegetable oil. Thank you for this recipe <3

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Twila.

  7. Ryan

    Soooo dense! Eggs lighten pancakes up, these were just heavy and dense.

    • Madhuram

      Sorry, Ryan, I’m 100% sure that you have missed something. This is a flawless recipe that makes absolutely light pancakes.

  8. Ilham

    When cooking the pancakes do you put oil before pouring in the the pancake mix

    • Madhuram

      The oil is mixed along with the milk.

  9. Ilham

    That was very helpful and I love your recipe.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Ilham.

  10. Anisa Hussain

    This is amazing, i didn’t have ground cinnamon or vanilla extract so i made it without. It still turned out pretty good.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Anisa.

  11. Zahra

    First time making pancakes and I didn’t have eggs at home. Made this and was absolutely delish (with maple syrup) x

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Zahra.

  12. Katrinka S

    My daughter is allergic to eggs. It is always hard to find recipes she likes. She gave a thumbs up and said she would like to have the pancakes again.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Katrinka.

  13. Dior

    I was out of eggs but still made a delicious breakfast this morning! Thank you! 🙂

    I halved the recipe and found my batter was a bit thick, so I thinned it with more milk.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Dior.

  14. Adele Lynch

    I woke up to discover I had no eggs and everyone wanted pancakes!!! Found this recipe and I had a very satisfied family. They are delicious! Thank you!!!

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Adele.

  15. SGMama

    These are delicious, and even better with blueberries! Super easy to make, too. I’ll probably use this recipe even when I do have eggs on hand, it’s that good! Thanks for taking the time to share this with us. ♥♥♥

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, SGMama.

  16. Midhat

    Hello, can I substitute almond flour with all purpose flour?

    • Madhuram

      It won’t work, Midhat. Other gluten-free grain flours would work though.

  17. Jo Ann

    These are the best pancakes I have ever made. I think the cinnamon gives them more flavor than other recipes.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Jo Ann.

  18. Zee

    This eggless pancake recipe was truly delicious! I added a hint of ground nutmeg in addition to the cinnamon and it just made the whole batch pop! I also used almond milk instead of the 2% Great recipe!

    • Madhuram

      Nutmeg! That’s a lovely addition!

  20. Jisel

    Absolutely love this recipe. My son is allergic to eggs, peanut and dairy. He loved these pancakes!!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Jisel.

  21. Martin Barnes

    I halved the recipe and made them for myself and they were pretty tasty. I never had a full half cup of milk so I replaced part of the milk with more water. All in all, tasty

    • Madhuram

      Thanks for the feedback, Martin.

  22. Meredith

    I made these for my family and they loved them! The we’re super easy and are the best pancakes ever!!! Lots of other pancake recipes take forever to make but these were simplified and easy. Love them!!!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much, Meredith.

  23. Suzy

    Much better tasting and fluffier than expected. Not too thick or too thin for me. I liked the process as much as the content of this recipe. Easiest pancakes I’ve ever made. Appreciated how you put all the dry and wet ingredients in proper order. Some recipes don’t do this, and I take half the time to figure it all out. I also liked how you melt the butter for cooking then add it to the batter. We ran out of eggs, and we need to cut down on cholesterol at home. I would add a bit more cinnamon, and might replace a few ingredients for healthier ones in the future. But I didn’t think I’d find such a great eggless pancake recipe, so thank you so much for this!

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Suzy. These days I don’t add so much melted butter. I add some applesauce, avocado/coconut oil etc. to make it a bit healthier. Also whole wheat pastry flour instead of all-purpose flour.

  24. Jen

    These are delicious! We’ve been making simple egg/banana pancakes for my toddler ever since he started solids and since I can’t have wheat, but now that baby brother is allergic to eggs I had to search for another option. Made these with gluten free flour and added bananas. SO. GOOD!! Definitely filing this recipe away to make again. Thank you for sharing!

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Jen.

  25. Rachel

    I was out of eggs on Sunday morning and didn’t want to go to the store. This was definitely the right recipe to use! Delicious

    • Madhuram

      Thanks for the feedback, Rachel.
