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.

    Had no eggs during a snowstorm and found this recipe. Partner and I loved them. I wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between having eggs in them. Absolutely fantastic and saved our snowy brunch!!!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you for the feedback, Cameron.

  2. Kate

    OMG these are so good! I had my doubts but I now will never make pancakes any other way. I added chocolate chips and used strawberry sauce.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you, Kate.

  3. J Aldred

    I was in a pinch after being socked in after one of the biggest snow storms on record. I had nothing to eat for breakfast and I really didn’t want to eat dinner for three meals of the day!

    This recipe gave me a from scratch breakfast that was amazing! By far one of the best pancakes I have had.

    Thank you!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for the feedback.

  4. Nowelle

    Good! I made mine adding about half a banana and a whole mandarin. I did not add the vanilla as I am out and I like that they are made without eggs. That is cool. I had to substitute 1/4 of the milk for water though b/c I was out of milk so maybe that is why the pancakes was too moist but overall, I magic bulleted the batter and it was smooth and creamy and cooked in butter, my favorite, turned out very taste. I thought it had a very good flavor and I topped mine with powdered sugar.

    • Madhuram

      That’s great, Nowelle!

  5. James

    Also not sure why mine didn’t bubble before flipping them the first time, just kind of guessed when they needed to be flipped. They turned out great though. Would it not bubbling be because of something I did wrong?

    • Madhuram

      Was the pan hot enough? Was the baking powder fresh and not expired?

  6. James

    Quick question…can I use extra virgin olive oil, instead of vegetable oil?

    I tried your recipe this morning and liked it, but didn’t like the flavour of the vegetable oil? Please let me know. Thanks a lot!

    • Madhuram

      If you like the distinct flavor of extra-virgin olive oil, then you should be fine using that. I think I would prefer coconut oil instead.

  7. Evie

    These are delicious! My toddler is allergic to eggs so we made these for pancake Tuesday. I did raspberries and dark chocolate chips and added honey on top, total hit! You don’t miss the egg whatsoever.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you, Evie.

  8. Rishi Kalra

    Amazing, best eggless recipe i have come across. Thank you.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you, Rishi.

  9. Heather

    Fantastic recipe, yummy, light and fluffy. Way better than the egg version

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much, Heather.

  10. Ian

    If you do not like these, what is wrong with you. AMAZING

    This is, by far, the best eggless pancake recipe I’ve ever tried! Thank you! It has a place in my library of recipes. Be well.

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Celeste.

  12. Christine

    These pancakes were even better than the ones I usually make with eggs. So fluffy, with crispy edges. I love them.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you for the feedback, Christine.

  13. Donna F Hardin

    Very Good Recipe.. the Cinnamon wasn’t over powering .. Loved the hint of it.. They are Fluffy… The only thing I different was replace oil with melted butter as I was out of Oil.. Thanks

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Donna.

  14. Jennifer R

    Wow! I never comment on recipes, but this one was great and simple. I was put of eggs but wanted pancakes and this was a perfect solution. I typically add vanilla and cinnamon to my normal pancakes, so win win. FWIW to fellow reviewers, I did 1/3 buckwheat flour to 2/3 regular, and they were still perfect! Cheers!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you for letting us know about the addition of buckwheat flour, Jennifer.

  15. Angie

    Can I make these with Almond flour?

    • Madhuram

      I have tried, and it doesn’t work, Angie. It might work if using eggs.

    • Shii'o Lyons

      Almond flour can work, but you will need an extra 1/3 cup with maple syrup and an extra egg – dropping the making soda by 1tsp. I can’t ingest egg or milk so I use Chia seeds in substitution of egg; also, I found it was better to use oil instead of butter when using almond flour and/or milk for this recipe.

      Hope this helps!

  16. Kim

    Wow! Came here bc we’re out of eggs. This is better than our usual recipe and will now be our go-to! I did mistakenly melt the butter and add to the mix because I don’t read thoroughly. It was a happy mistake. (I still buttered the griddle). Yum!

    • Madhuram

      That’s awesome, Kim!

  17. Amina

    I made these eggless pancakes today (1/22/2023) for breakfast and they were fluffy and delicious.
    Thank you for this great recipe.

    • Madhuram

      You’re welcome, Amina.

  18. lauren

    no it sucked

  19. Frito Cherenfant

    Yoooooo! I just made these pancakes and they were the . My son wanted pancakes but we were out of eggs. I did a quick Google search and this recipe popped up. I’m not goin’ to lie, I was a bit skeptical but I followed the recipe and my pancakes came out fluffy and delicious, except for that first sacrificial pancake . Thanks for this recipe, it’s a keeper

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much, Frito.

  22. Samiha Ajetaily

    Hi. I made them with chocolate chips and I have to say they were one of the fluffiest pancake’s I’ve ever made! This will be my eggless pancake recipe until forever. Thank you

    • Madhuram

      Thank you very much for the feedback, Samiha.

  23. Bryan

    My batter came out very thick, but with a little creativity these turned out to be the fluffiest and tastiest pancakes I’ve ever made. If your batter ends up being too thick, put some melted butter on the back of whatever measuring cup you’re using to dole out the batter and spread/tap it to your desired size and thickness. Great recipe!

    • Madhuram

      Thank you for sharing the tip, Bryan.

    • Nida

      Didn’t have eggs at home so i tried this recipe. They were okay ish. I made the pan cakes around 8 minutes after adding the butter. They were kinda doughy. My kid figured something was different after the first bite.
      I think recipes with vinegar and baking soda would work better in eggless format.

  24. Tay

    I made these and they’re tasty. I has the opposite issue as everyone else. They were fluffy and the batter was plenty thick. I think my batter might have been a touch too thick, but my daughter approved.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you for the feedback, Tay.

  25. Patricia

    Amazingly fluffy!!! I read a lot of comments about them not rising. This is probably from using old baking powder.

    • Madhuram

      Thank you, Patricia.

    • Nelly

      That’s exactly what happened to me. It’s 2023 and my baking powder was from 2021. I couldn’t figure out why it wasn’t rising lol.
