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. Marsha Mcleod

    This was VERY good as is but I like a little more sweet so I added more cinnamon and a little maple syrup.. I also used evaporated milk as it’s what I had on hand! 10/10

    • Madhuram

      Thank you, Marsha.

  2. John

    It is too much baking soda!

    • Scott

      John – make sure you’re using baking powder, as the recipe states, and not baking soda as you mentioned. 2t of baking powder is in line with many other recipes. if you used baking soda, I’m sure you got something undesirable!

      These are great as written!

      • Madhuram

        Thank you very much, Scott. You are absolutely right. I have been making these pancakes for almost 7-8 years now and never had any issue at all. I really wonder what others do that they end up with indelible pancakes. It’s really puzzling.

    • Halley R.

      Did you put baking soda in instead of baking powder? Maybe that’s the issue

  3. Bella the bad baker (I still try tho)

    Hi,so I am a horrible baker and if I do not make something that is made from a shop bought box it flops,But my feedback for your recipe is,THEY TURNED OUT GREAT!They did taste a little bit off though because I didn’t have any vanilla extract but other than that they were a little thin…but amazing!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for the feedback, Bella.

  4. Lyr

    I never write comments but this time I must say something. This is the BEST eggless pancake recipe ever! It’s even the best pancake recipe! My little one is allergic to eggs. I’ve tried a lot of eggless pancake recipes, but never found a tasty one, which is so frustrating. This recipe is god sent! Thank you so much! Now my son can enjoy delicious eggless pancakes!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for your lovely feedback, Lyr.

  5. Gg

    Thanks my girls loved this I just added chocolate chips YUM,

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Gg.

  6. Rida

    I must have done something wrong because the rest of the comments on this post are so positive, but honestly the pancakes were not very good. They were flat and kind of tasted like cardboard. I will be trying this recipe again sometime because I obviously did something wrong!

    • Madhuram

      I’m sorry you didn’t get it right, Rida. The trick to getting perfect pancakes with this recipe is preparing the batter in the right consistency (it should be pretty thick, not diluted) and the stove/range should be at the right temperature and the pan should be heated well.

  7. Emily

    I never leave comments on recipes but these were the absolute fluffiest, most delicious pancakes I have ever made. I didn’t have butter so I used oil for that, and I used half whole milk and half heavy cream for the milk and I am astounded by the result.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much, Emily.

  8. Nicole

    These were amazing! I didn’t have eggs on hand so I googled a recipe and came across yours. I did not have vanilla extract so I substituted almond extract. They were light and fluffy and delicious. My 18 month old enjoyed them too. Thanks!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much, Nicole.

  9. KB

    Great recipe and no different in terms of texture, really…unless you like your pancakes “cakey”. I do not so these were perfect.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you, KB.

  10. K@t

    I honestly did not enjoy the pancakes at all. So oily and bad

    • Madhuram

      Sorry, you didn’t like it.

  11. MD

    Pancakes are delicious! I substituted oat milk and nutmeg because that’s what I had on hand and am very happy! 🙂

    • Madhuram

      Thank you, MD.

  12. Cinthya

    At 3 am, with a rumbling tummy and a strong craving for pancakes (and no eggs in the fridge), I ended up on your blog. And guess what? These really are the best eggless pancakes I’ve eaten!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much, Cinthiya.

  13. Lexi

    So so delicious! I added a pinch of nutmeg bc I love how it complemented the cinnamon! What a great recipe, thanks so much for sharing (:

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Elsie.

  16. Rebekah M.

    These were so yummy, I had no eggs one Saturday morning and instead of trying to use flaxseed as an egg replacement I wanted to see if I could find a different recipe and this was delicious and had fluffy pancakes! I just added nutmeg as well as cinnamon and it was like eating a soft churro!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you for the feedback, Rebekah.

  17. kenny

    Hey, that’s 1 157 calorie pancake or 6 157 calorie pancakes?
    that means it’s 6 serving 157 calories?
    answer pls

    • Madhuram

      1 pancake is 157 calories.

  18. Adaam

    Add 1/4 of lemon extract to add a lemon shortbread taste, it makes it taste so much better

    • Madhuram

      Thank you for the feedback, Adaam.

    • Adaam

      1/2 – 1 teaspoon*

  19. Donna

    I’m not a huge pancake fan but my kids are so i decided to give these a whirl and i gotta say these far surpassed my expectations to an extent that I REALLY enjoyed them and so did the kids. I followed the instructions to a t (including the heat set at 4) but after the butter add in, i folded in some frozen blueberries and they were perfect. I love cinnamon and unlike other recipes, you could taste it in this one so temper your desire to add more! Thank you for posting this — it deserves the title.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much, Donna.

  20. Abigail

    Didn’t have butter so I used regular margarine. But I added 1 scoop of protein powder and 1 tablespoon of peanut butter. …

    • Madhuram


  21. Pat

    What temperature do you mean by a “4”?

    • Madhuram

      Our stoves here have markings. I would so close to medium heat.

  22. Erica Perkins

    Very impressed with how these turned out. I thought they were going to be thin, tasteless pancakes but I was wrong. I did have to add more water because batter was pretty thick (made a double batch) but they were delicious and will definitely make these again.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you, Erica.

  23. Gina

    I used 1 cup of buttermilk and 1/2 tsp of baking soda instead of milk and baking powder, and the pancakes turned out great.

    • Madhuram

      Wow! Thanks for the feedback, Gina.

  24. Charlotte

    I have an egg allergy so really excited to try this recipe today!! Silly question but what is a ‘cup’ in measurements? Would you say a normal tea cup size? Thanks!!

    • Madhuram

      Sorry, Charlotte that I’m late to reply. I don’t know if you managed to do it. The cup measurement is the standard US cup. Here we follow that for baking and cooking. You can check out more about it in the Baking Measurements page.

      • Paige

        A cup is 8 ounces of any fluid. If you don’t have a measuring cup you can use a glass jar of food or a bottle of water or juice (or whatever) as a guide. I’ve had to do that in other people’s kitchens a few times.

  25. Spocksgirl

    While I will not say they are light and fluffy, these pancakes are surprisingly very good. I didn’t miss the egg at all. Though I would guess the pancakes would not be as thin with eggs, I like pancakes. Definitely a win.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you for the feedback.
