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.

    What’s an alternative neutral milk beverage to use instead of cow’s milk?

    • Madhuram

      I have used almond milk, rice milk and oat milk as well.

  2. Paula Faughender

    Just got home from vacation and wanted a light, homemade, dinner tonight. No eggs in the house. This recipe was so satisfying and filling! Easy to make, too. I followed the recipe exactly, which yielded dinner and leftovers for tomorrow’s breakfast, as well. Adding this to my recipe folder right now.
    Thank you!

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Paula. Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback.

  3. Lacie

    I completely butchered your recipe. I’m so sorry! But even messed up with a little syrup it was good!
    I didn’t have flour but I had Bisquick
    I doubled your ingredients except the milk
    I used what I had and while it wasn’t a normal pancake it was still good.

    • Madhuram

      Haa…haa…that’s fine, Lacie, as long as you were able to eat it 😉

  4. Annette

    Winner! This is absolutely the best eggless pancake recipe. THANK YOU XX
    I have tried many many recipes looking for one my children will eat and this morning I am very happy to say both of them enjoyed them.
    I used gluten free flour due to my daughters dietary needs. I did have to add a little more liquid due to the gluten free flour.

    • Madhuram

      That’s great to know, Annette! Thank you for leaving a comment.

  5. Amy

    Hello can you use coconut flour for this ?

    • Madhuram

      No, Amy. It won’t work. You can try with a gluten-free baking mix though.

  6. D

    If I use whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour, will that affect anything?

    • Madhuram

      No, it doesn’t. I use whole wheat pastry flour and whole wheat flour all the time. Whole wheat pastry flour is more delicate so it would better suit that whole wheat flour. Again it depends upon one’s preference. Experiment and see, D.

  7. Susan

    Came across these pancakes this morning whilst looking for some comfort food to make for the family as we are isolating with covid-19.
    These went down a treat, I tripled the recipe and made larger flatter pancakes, we topped them with lots of different toppings from sausages to maple syrup and chocolate spread. Thank you for sharing this it certainly hit the spot and the whole family loved them.

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Susan. Thank you for taking the time to leave a detailed feedback.

  8. Liz

    Can I just say thank you for this recipe first. My son makes pancakes for his little brother and today we ran out of eggs. He tried two times on his own and he said it was not possible. I searched and found this recipe and attempted making it for the first time and it was brilliant. My little chef agreed with me as well saying that it looks, smells and tastes better than his previous ones.

    • Madhuram

      Aww…thank you so much, Liz! You and your son made my day!


    BEST Eggless pancakes ever !!!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you, Tanya.

  10. Lynne

    I had a relentless craving for pancakes this morning and no eggs in the house. To Google I went, on a desperate search for an eggless pancake recipe. To be honest, I didn’t have high expectations for these because I figured eggs were an essential ingredient for pancakes. However, you have proved me wrong! These were so delicious. They were a little more dense than my regular pancake recipe I use, but I did not mind that at all. I topped them with butter (of course) and real maple syrup. These hit the spot and this pregnant lady’s craving has been very much satisfied. 🙂 thank you!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you for taking the time to write your feedback, Lynne.

  11. Pancake- Good, old fashioned and easy to made recipes

    […] you need to make eggless flapjacks for reasons unknown or the other, this is the formula you must be […]

  12. Ian

    I didn’t have eggs at home, so looked online for an egg-free recipe. Absolutely wonderful. I’ve made pancakes a million times but they’ve never turned out like these. Love ‘em!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much, Ian.

  13. Karla

    I’ve e done this before and it was great
    But now, I think there is something wrong with my ingredients. Second time they turn out raw inside. Idk if the problem is the flour or the baking powder. Anyone knows??

    • Madhuram

      Maybe the pan was not hot enough, Karla.

  14. Zarka Miakhil

    hello, i want to make these vegan so is butter necessary?

    • Madhuram

      No, you can simply add some oil instead.

  15. Sam

    Hi, what type of butter do you use? Unsalted, salted…? Can’t wait to try the recipe < 3

    • Madhuram


  16. Kristine

    Turned out amazing, a big Thank you!
    My daughter will be happy, that we can make pancakes again. My son has egg allergy, so there have been no eggs in our house for a couple months now. And no foods containing eggs, but I decided to try this eggless recipe and it’s totally amazing!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for the feedback, Kristine.

  17. Amanda Y

    This recipe is great. I didn’t have any eggs and found this recipe. I highly recommend it. I added some chocolate chips to half my batter and my 3 year old loved them. I will be saving this recipe for next time.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you, Amanda.

  18. Hannah

    These were so delicious. Never ever comment but had to say how impressed I am! If anyone is reading this and has no eggs left and kids hankering for pancakes try these! They’re so yum, taste like churros. Thank you!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much, Hannah.

  19. Melissa

    Excellent recipe! I made these this morning and they turned out perfect. Thank you!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you, Melissa.

  20. Honey

    Thanks for the recipe, the pancake is so good and yummy! love it!!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you, Honey.

  21. Heba

    Great recipe! you mentioned that the pancakes will not sweet by themselves, can i add more sugar to make it sweeter? and if so how much do you suggest i add?

    • Madhuram

      Thank you, Heba. You can probably add 2-3 tablespoons. Sometimes too much sugar might interfere with the texture of the pancakes. So it’s a better idea to top the pancakes with maple syrup instead.

  22. Kelly

    I use this recipe for my daughter with an egg allergy and I love it! Quick, easy and simple, I double the batch then freeze some (separated by plastic wrap and put in a ziplock) for quick easy breakfasts. Just pull out 2 and microwave 30 seconds on each side and they still taste great!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much, Kelly.

  23. Mari

    WOW!! I’m a college student who grew up eating my grandma’s pancakes, and I’ve tried several recipes now that I’m older and never wound up with a good batch of pancakes. Always too runny, too floury, or too oily. I tried these tonight on a whim because I ran out of eggs, and they are the BEST! I’ll never need an egg pancake recipe again haha. Lovely, light sweetness and such an airy texture, with the lightest crisp edges. The cinnamon and vanilla are lovely. My boyfriend and I enjoyed these very much; we made a double batch and almost finished them all! We will definitely do them again in the future. Thank you! 🙂

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for the feedback, Mari.

    I had a sudden craving for pancakes, mainly because i was wondering what I could make for breakfast with no breakfast items in! I thought of pancakes then realised I didn’t have the eggs ‍♀️ … made this recipe and loved them. Also, I didn’t have plain flower or baking powder but had self raising flower so I took a risk and made them with that anyway. It still worked and they were lovely! I had savoury ones with cheese and relish and then sweet afterwards with bananas and honey
