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.

    Can these eggless pancakes be frozen? TY

    • Madhuram

      Yes, it can be, Hanna.

  2. Eve

    Tasted like baking powder! Spat out by daughter so disappointed- maybe the cup to baking powder ratio is off

  3. Daniella Burgess

    Followed the recipe to a T and what came out was like hot dough.

  4. Aidann GreenWolfe

    These were amazing pancakes! Great recipe.
    I tried them using 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 all-purpose. Delicious!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for the feedback, Aidann.

  5. somebody

    Turned out nice. I substituted water with yogurt whey and added a handful of frozen blueberries.

    • Madhuram

      That’s awesome!

  6. Yvonne

    My daughter and I whipped these up this morning for breakfast. We added cocoa powder to them, about a tbsp. Quite delicious. I think I would add a little bit more sugar next time, though.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you for the feedback, Yvonne. Yes, you might have to add more sugar if using cocoa powder to offset some of the bitterness.

  7. Diane

    Went to make pancakes and didn’t have any eggs and found your recipe. These were great! Couldn’t tell that there weren’t any eggs in the mix and didn’t use any syrup with them as we mix in chocolate chips. Will definitely make these again!!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for the feedback, Diane.

  8. Bonnie A

    This is my go to recipe for pancakes for the past 3 years when first stumbled upon your recipe! It is easy to make, it’s light and fluffy. Perfect every time! The batter doesn’t need to be sweet cause we use maple syrup to dip it in. Thank you so much for sharing this. My picky eater loves it!

    • Madhuram

      You’re very welcome, Bonnie. Thank you for the feedback.

  9. Yolanda

    Followed directions and got delicious results. Be sure to sift and don’t overmix. I used a hand whip, not the Kitchen Aid. I really couldn’t tell that they were egg free! Definitely had a crepe-meets-pancake texture, which I prefer.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you for the feedback, Yolanda.

  10. Rachelle

    To be honest I didn’t think these were that great. They were alright in a pinch but I wasn’t a huge fan of the cinnamon and the lack of sweetness. It just kinda tasted like eating cinnamon and flour. We even added chocolate chips to some of them but it didn’t really help. I think if I made these again I would up the sugar and omit the cinnamon.

  11. Elaine C

    These were easy and delicious and fluffy! Our three year old grandson “helped”!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you, Elaine.

  12. K

    Didn’t work for me and I’m surprised since everyone else seems to love it and I’m a pretty experienced cook/baker. Batter was watery and lumpy and the cooked pancake was flat and chewy, not light and fluffy. Oh well

  13. Nekeisha

    I made these for my 7 year old, who is picky. I didn’t have any sugar on hand (I know lol) and he loved them. Next time I won’t bother adding the sugar. I did find it to be thick, so I added more milk.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you for the feedback, Nekeisha.

  14. Ku龜--ê。Tâibûn台文。

    I’m glad to see eggless pancake out there, gonna do it next time 0.0
    (Had been doing pancake stuff since high school… now tired of eggs.

  15. B

    turned out chewy and doughy not fluffy 🙁

    • Madhuram

      Sorry that it didn’t turn out well for you.

  16. Jade

    This one is a winner!

    I’ve tried countless other eggless pancake recipes (my little girl is allergic to eggs) and this is by far the most successful! Thanks for making our Sunday brunch!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for the feedback, Jade.

  17. Alaa

    One day I woke up and wanted pancakes but didn’t have any eggs so I came across this recipe and it was the best pancakes we’ve ever eaten so I’ve made pancakes like this ever since. Very very delicious and easy to make. Thank you for this recipe

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Alaa.

  18. Trish

    Wow, wow, wow, light and fluffy, very impressed with this recipe. I used goats butter and milk as I suffered with migraine from cow milk products.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you for the feedback, Trish. Great to know that you were able to incorporate goat’s butter and milk to this recipe.

  19. Terry

    Could you add one ripe banana for sweetness or would this ruin the outcome?

    • Madhuram

      It might not be the exact same as the one without the bananas. The texture might vary a bit but I don’t think it would ruin.

  20. Aradhana

    Just made these pancakes now…light & airy..definitely a winning recipe!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you for the feedback, Aradhana.

  21. Kalia

    My son can’t have eggs and regular milk. So thank you for this recipe! I substitute milk to lactaid milk instead and still turn out fluffy and soooo good!

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Kalia.

  22. Jeanine

    Absolutely delicious!. My fussy kids LOVE THEM. Thought my pancake recipe was the ultimate but having to emit eggs from our diet, I found this recipe. These really are next level!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much, Jeanine.
