Do You Have Pancakes For Breakfast?

4.2 stars from 5 ratings of Eggless Pancakes

For a cold winter or rainy day, when you just long for something fast and easy breakfast, what could be more comforting than Eggless Pancakes with generous spread of honey, peanut butter or your favorite jam.

Coincidentally, I was out of eggs for the whole week. Majority pancake recipes that I had scoured at various websites require an egg or two but this Eggless Pancake recipe doesn’t, is rather unique, different from the normal pancakes that I had eaten.

Advantages of Eggless Pancake

This egg less pancake batter is a little thicker than the usual and it does not spread out either. It will turn out similar to poach egg resemblance.

The advantages of consuming egg less pancake is :

  • less sugar
  • no butter
  • no egg
  • less oil


Milk Substitute

  • 1 cup of soya milk
  • 1 cup of gluten free milk
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of formula milk powder mix with warm water, stir well, make sure no milk lumps
  • 1 cup of fresh milk

Pour in the oil, milk and stir well with a fork.

It is wise to use warm milk so that the pancake batter will diluted easily.

Cold milk will create batter lumps which is hard to dilute.

  • Heat up wok or pan. I use a wok since I do not own a frying pan.


  • Put in a little butter and spread around the surface of the wok.

  • Scoop a ladle of pancake batter, place in the middle of the wok.
  • You may notice that the batter does not spread. It is supposed to be that way.

Step 5

  • Once the pancake edges turns brownish, flip over to cook the other side.
  • A little burnt surface makes the pancake taste crispy.

Peachy..now this great...no so much about the "eggless" pancakes...although a great approach...more, because I wanted pancakes and also ran out of eggs...being single, I did what most of us guys do. We don't follow the directions, we use what we have. I ommitted the eggs from my batter, used olive oil instead of butter, and a little "extra" water and milk...best pancakes I have ever had. Again, like usual, great article!

peachpurple 2 years ago from Home Sweet Home Author

thanks, you are being a great guy, yeah olive oil is better than butter

Looks like a real thing and I can almost smell it ... Well, about the toppings, I can add in my country chocolate is very popular among younger generation but two traditional toppings very well worth exploring are cottage cheese (sweet) and walnuts (minced). My personal record is 17 pancakes!

peachpurple 2 years ago from Home Sweet Home Author

Dear tolovaj

By golly, that are a lot of pancakes, but i like your toppings

This recipe sounds delicious and easy to make. The next time I'm out of eggs I'll give this a try. Usually, I like to cook one egg over medium to put on top of the pancake stack. Sometimes I use honey and peanut butter or just maple syrup.

We usually keep eggs in our house but this would come in very handy if we ever ran out of them and wanted pancakes. Thanks for your recipe. Applesauce is good on pancakes if you have never tried that combination.

I used almond milk but the consistency doesn't come out right. It may be because it doesn't have the fat like regular milk. Appreciate the new recipe. Pinning it.

Now that I no longer eat much wheat pancakes feel a little heavy to me, but this sounds like a great recipe for vegans, or people just do not have eggs.
