Fluffy Eggless Pancakes

"I poached this recipe from cooks.com (it was submitted by Dawn Linke, so props to her). I'm mainly posting it here since this is the recipe site I use the most and I want to add it to my cookbook, and I was most happy with this recipe vs. other eggless pancake recipes I've tried, so I figured it was worth sharing. :)"

Ready In:
8 pancakes




  • Combine dry ingredients and mix slightly.
  • Add milk, oil, water, and vanilla. Whisk together until just combined. Be careful not to over mix - it should still be slightly lumpy. Set aside to rest for a few minutes.
  • Melt the butter. When fully melted, add the butter to the batter.
  • Take pan to stove and stir butter into batter.
  • When pan is hot, with a measuring cup or ladle, pour 1/4 cup of batter into the skillet for each pancake.
  • Cook until bubbles form on the surface. Carefully flip pancakes with turner/spatula and cook until golden brown.
  • Note: This recipe also works well with whole wheat flour. Chopped fruit, nuts or chocolate chips can be added to batter before cooking for a unique treat.

    The pancakes came out sooo amazing! I read some of the comments first so I doubled up the sugar and vanilla to make sure I don’t taste the baking powder, but when you add maple syrup when serving they are slightly too sweet. I have a sweet tooth so I still loved them! But will try the original recipe next time and I’m sure they will still come out great! Very fluffy and airy too, perfect if your kids have an egg allergy! I think they even came out better than the ones with eggs.. ;) For those that can taste the baking powder, try sieving the dry ingredients and then mixing them before you add wet ingredients. This is because sometimes baking powder lumps up in the container especially if it has been opened months ago like mine.

    Lovely recipe. I added more sugar the first time - but stuck to original recipe 2nd time around especially as the kids pile on the maple syrup. But it was requested this morning and the comment was - better than pancakes with eggs!!! They love the choc chips

    I just made these pancakes, though with little changes. They came out so good and fluffy. My kids gobbled them all. I increased the sugar to 3 tablespoons and are nutmeg along with cinnamon and served them with apple butterscotch sauce. I could taste baking powder in them, so next time I'll reduce baking powder

    These pancakes sucked, they were flat and i followed the directions exactly, wasted my time making them, i even added an egg and they still sucked and were flat.

    Wow! I always figured the eggs a) held the pancakes together and b) made them fluffy. This extremely simple recipe disproves both of those... now I'm not sure why most recipes call for eggs! Like others, reached for this on a morning when we ran out of eggs. Found the basic batter a little bland - maybe it needs more sugar, or a touch of salt? Added blueberries, which I love in any pancakes. Thanks for a useful addition to the list of family "staples."

    use Mexican Vanilla mix extract and almond milk

    I added one extra teaspoon of sugar to the recipe as I usually like to have my pancakes without any syrup/sauce or honey.

    I added a third of a cup of unsweetened cocoa powder and a bit more sugar, and out came delicious, not to sweet, chocolate pancakes.

    I don't know if I can give it 5 stars just because I made some changes. I used applesauce instead of oil just because anywhere I can get a fruit or veggie is a bonus. Almond milk instead of cow and I also didn't use cinnamon because my son doesn't care for it. Instead I put in 1 1/2 T of cocoa powder and 2 T of sugar. We thought they were pretty darn good and vegan to boot!!

    These were good. Woke up this morning and no eggs or milk, but this recipe saved the day. I used soy milk in place of milk. My husband said they reminded him of buckwheat pancakes. Thanks for the recipe.
