Best Pancake Recipe Ever – Eggless Pancakes

Eggless Pancakes

Eggless pancakes happen to be a favorite evening snack or mid morning snack for Nehal. Today is a school holiday due to the bandh called for by the Seemandhra leaders on the Telangana decision. Surprisingly, he gets very hungry during holidays and I dont know where this hunger comes from inspite of having a filling breakfast. He did not want to eat any of the munchies like Murukku or Chegodi which were very much within his reach. He wanted something warm and freshly made! With no bread at home to make him a sandwich, I decided on making the best pancake recipe that I ever tried. Eggless pancakes!

Best Pancake Ever

It is one of the quickest, simplest and tasty snack for kids which take less than 15 mts to make. Yes, fluffy eggless pancakes made from scratch hardly take any time to prepare. So drop those store bought box mixes and make your own. You can use whole wheat flour for a healthy option. I adapted this recipe with minor changes and its a keeper. They make for the softest, fluffiest, spongy and crisp on the outside pancakes. Even the pickest of eaters will relish this best pancake recipe served warm with honey or maple syrup. I drizzled some honey on the cinnamon flavored eggless pancakes which made for a great combination.

  Prepare time:
 Serves: 5

 Main Ingredients:

  •  flour
  •   milk


  •   Plain flour - 1 cup
  •   Salt - pinch
  •   Sugar - 1 tsp
  •   Baking powder - 2 tsps, heaped
  •   Cinnamon powder - large pinch
  •   Olive oil - 1 tbsp
  •   Butter - 1 tbsp, melted and warm
  •   Milk - 1 cup
  •   Vanilla essence - 1/2 tsp

Method for making Eggless Pancakes ~ Best Pancake Recipe

Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl. Do not over mix, its fine if you find a few small lumps. Ensure that there aren't large lumps of flour. Leave aside the batter for 5 mts.
Heat an iron skillet or a non stick pan and allow to heat for 30 to 40 seconds on low to medium flame. Reduce flame to low and pour a large ladle full of batter in the center of pan. Do not spread the batter. Allow it to spread on its own.
Cook the pancake on low medium flame for half a mt and you will see that bubbles appear over the pancake. When the pancake turns a nice golden shade flip it over and cook for half a mt and remove to a plate.
Prepare pancakes with the rest of the batter.
Serve warm topped with butter and honey or any sauce of your choice like maple syrup or caramel sauce.


  •   There is no need to grease the skillet when you add the pancake batter. Ensure that the skillet is not too hot otherwise the pancake will attain a dark shade. We are looking at a nice golden shade which is best attained with medium heat.
  •   For a healthier option, add 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup wheat flour. Increase the quantity of milk by 1/3 to 1/2 cup if using whole wheat flour.

  • janet

    Love your recipes, my hubby is saying, you’r my teacher, b’coz of you I learned to cook, thank you.

  • chaitu

    Tried this recipe… but blow.. it turned out to be a disaster. I took all the items as per the list, except for the vanilla essence. the look of the pancake is similar to the pic but the taste is very bitter. Not sure where i went wrong.. can u please suggest?

    • Sailu | Indian Food

      Are you sure you used fresh baking powder and the quantity mentioned in the recipe. Using old baking powder and too much of it causes bitterness. Next time use fresh baking powder and reduce it slightly. Use 2 teaspoons of baking powder NOT 2 tablespoons.

      • chaitu

        Thanks Sailu… I will take care of this next time. I might have used an old pack…

  • Aprilleejasmine

    I just tried these and they came out awesome the only thing is I put a lot more sugar in to minimise the bitterness but was happy with the outcome

  • Mehru

    Just made these, turned out absolutely wonderful. Made with half a cup whole wheat flour, skipped the plain flour and only added half a teaspoon of baking powder. Also added a little shakkar (jaggery). Ate it with ricotta, bananas and honey. Simply divine!

  • Darshita Chopra

    Can I use it in making Dorayakis by just filling some molten chocolates or by filling jams and all then make another hot Pancake and stick it on the previous one?

  • Darshita Chopra

    Can I use something else instead of cinnamon powder?

  • Raj2k

    Happy Pancake day! Amazing! Used self raising flour, half cup extra of milk, chocolate chunks instead of cinnamon powder. Ate it with bananas and Maple syrup. Delicious!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    These were absolutely delicious! I went vegan with them and used almond milk instead of regular milk. They turned out moist, fluffy, and my boyfriend (who isn’t usually into vegan foods) loved them! Thank you for sharing your recipe!

  • Blueblue22

    These taste like straight-up baking powder to me ๐Ÿ™ maybe I did something wrong.

  • polsara

    This is actually my favorite pancake recipe, and I use it whether there are eggs in the house ๐Ÿ˜€ my roommates think I’m nuts, but they do like the results ๐Ÿ˜€ I just suggest to not heap the teaspoons much. Thank you! ๐Ÿ˜€

    We have always had the store-bought pancake mixes you just add water to. Today, we were out, so I decided to find a recipe from Pinterest and make some from scratch. I specifically wanted them eggless.
    WOW, I AM SO GLAD I FOUND YOUR RECIPE!! Those were the most delicious I have EVER had!! They were simple, fast, and quick to make. I followed the recipe exactly but left out the cinnamon.
    I’m never going back to the boxed mixes again….
    Can’t wait to try your other recipes too!!
