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. Kate

    I was out of some of the usual suspects and thus sought out this eggless pancake recipe! I left out the cinnamon and substituted a combination of buttermilk and hemp milk in place of regular milk. I don’t think I’ll go back to a traditional recipe—this one is SO good. Thank you!

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Kate.

  2. Emily

    Added a bit more sugar and cinnamon. Tasted like cinnabun pancakes. Next time I’m going to add some brown sugar as well

    • Madhuram

      That’s awesome, Emily.

  3. Rachel

    I’ve tried so many pancake recipes claiming to be the best so I didn’t have high expectations but my first bite literally made me stop in my tracks. These are some of the best pancakes I’ve had and SO easy to make. I just added a couple more tablespoons of sugar. 🙂 And I even undercooked one and overcooked one and they all tasted great.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for the feedback, Rachel.

  4. Ashley

    Thanks for the recipe, my 4 year old son has an egg allergy and these have been a Saturday morning go-to! I’ve made them probably a dozen times now, The whole family loves them

    • Madhuram

      I’m glad your son is able to eat pancakes now, Ashley.

  5. Alex

    I have made this recipe several times and love the taste, especially the cinnamon.

    One problem I have encountered is that doubling doesn’t seem to work well. It’s either too watery or too much flour taste. Do have any tips on this?

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Alex. I have not faced any issue with doubling because I always double it. 6 pancakes are not enough for our family.

  6. Meera

    Delicious brunch for me and my little brother! We always love to finding new ways to make eggless meals and this did not disappoint!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much, Meera.

  7. Ange

    Didn’t have eggs so searched for a recipe n chanced upon this. Amazing! Love it. I mixed with some self raising flour n halved the baking powder as I didn’t have enough of plain flour. Left out the vanilla n cinnamon too as we prefer ours plain. Yummy with butter n maple syrup. I don’t think I will be making pancakes with egg in future.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for the feedback, Ange.

  8. Rhonda

    So glad we ran out of eggs!! Made these today with blueberries & they are so good!!! Try them! So so Yummy!

    • Madhuram

      I’m glad you like these pancakes, Rhonda.

  9. Peggy Hurwitz

    My son who cant eat eggs due to an allergy, enjoyed these. Will def keep using this recipe

    • Madhuram

      That’s wonderful, Peggy!

      • leanne

        So I made these good.. once. And now every time the batter is super thick and bubbles struggle to appear ontop? What am I doing wrong? I need to be able to recreate the first time as they were so so good and I need that back in my life …

        • Madhuram

          Can you add a little bit more water/milk so that the batter is not thick? Hope you are adding the right amount of baking powder as well.

  10. Madelin

    I didn’t have pancake mix. So I said let me give this recipe a shot. I’m so glad I did. These were the most fluffiest, delicious pancakes ever!! What a Fantastic recipe. Highly recommend. Thanks a bunch!

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Madelin!

  11. Shar

    Hi Madhuram! Great recipe. I’ve made a lot (and I mean a lot) of pancakes and these were really up there. I did use buttermilk instead of milk though since I prefer the flavour. Enjoyed them a lot!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you, Shar.

  12. Ursula Murphy

    These were good, I am impressed, they turned out fluffy and I was so happy with them I may save on the eggs for pancakes anymore

    • Madhuram

      Thank you, Ursula.

  13. Makayla

    These were delicious. I added some blueberries and they taste just like normal blueberry pancakes! Thank you for the recipe! I will definitely be keeping it on hand!

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Makayla.

    • Rajat

      My pancakes was bitter in taste. So I throw them in dustbin. I think ur recipe has too much baking power.
      Everything else was amazing , batter , colour, fluffy-ness.

      • Madhuram

        Not at all, Rajat. I made these pancakes even last weekend and it was not bitter. Kindly check the expiry date for the baking powder.

  14. Jennifer

    This recipe is really great! Fluffy and delicious! Thanks.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Jennifer.

  15. Maura

    These are THE best pancakes ever!! I made them in a cast iron skillet and oh, they were perfect!!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Maura.

  16. Jza

    Thank you! Finally, an excellent recipe that my 1 yr old enjoys (he has an allergy to eggs)! Thanks again for making our morning great today! 🙂

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, JZa.

  17. Mark

    I found the pancake batter to thick the pancakes burn on outside and don’t cook properly on inside they come out mor like soufflé pancakes a bit bread like rather than usual flat ones.

    • Madhuram

      It means the pan was too hot.

  18. Julia

    I agree that these are quite tasty. I have no boxed pancake batter and no eggs so, thank you for the recipe. I just found another way to save money, no more store bought batter!

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Julia.

  19. RM

    So I don’t usually comment on posts but just had to on this one. This recipe is a game changer! I made these today and they were so soft and fluffy. Thank you so much! Have shared the recipe with pretty much every one i know!

    • Madhuram

      That’s so nice of you, RM. Thank you very much.

  20. Carly

    Halved the recipe to make myself one plate sized pancake, drowned it in maple, was perfect. Thanks for the recipe!

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Carly.

  21. Rebeca

    Hi! I’d really like to try them, but I was wondering if I could use oat flour instead? Thanks!

    • Madhuram

      It could work, Rebeca.

  22. Jennifer Cowins

    Recipe is amazing..I have a very picky 6 year old son and he gives it 2 thumbs up

    • Madhuram

      Thanks, Jennifer.

  23. Angela Merriman

    I added 1/4 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 blueberries. Topped with maple syrup and whipped cream. Delicious!

    • Madhuram

      Awesome, Angela!

  24. sue strugnell

    Added apples to the mix and these were delish!! thanks!

    • Madhuram

      That’s a nice addition, Sue!

  25. HL

    Great recipe! Except for the cinnamon. It completely took over the flavor. I probably should have known to just leave it out. Really appreciate the eggless recipe but I’ve got to say, if you want classic pancakes don’t add cinnamon to the batter.

    • Madhuram

      Thanks for the feedback, HL. I guess it’s a personal preference.

    • Sarah Collier

      We were out of eggs at home so I figured I would try this recipe. I added 1/8 tsp nutmeg. We enjoyed these eggless pancakes more than the ones I have been making for years with eggs.

      • Madhuram

        Thanks for the feedback, Sarah.
