How To Make Pancakes Without Eggs: All You Need To Know

Making Pancakes Without Egg

So you plan on making a batch of pancakes in the morning, but once you get to your kitchen, you find that you don’t have any eggs left to make your pancake batter. What will you do then? Fortunately, even though eggs are essential ingredients when it comes to making pancakes since it helps make pancakes richer, you can still make pancakes without the use of eggs.

What You Will Need

To make yourself a batch of eggless pancakes, you will need to prepare the following ingredients and materials:

  • ¾ Cup Whole Milk
  • 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 2 Tablespoon Melted Butter
  • 2 Tablespoon Sugar
  • ¼ Tablespoon Vanilla Essence
  • ½ Eno Fruit Salt
  • Sifter
  • Frying Pan

You can use any frying pan you want when cooking this recipe. However, if I have to make a recommendation, do go with a large round frying pan with a non-stick surface for easier flipping.

If possible, use a shallow pan with low skirts so that you will be able to use your spatula without ruining the sides of the pancake as you try to flip it. You should also choose a pan that is flat for even cooking.

What You Should Do

Step 1: Sift The Flour

Using your sifter, sift your flour into a clean bowl or container. Sifting your flour will make sure that you end up with a smooth batter that you can easily mix.

Step 2: Add The Milk And Sugar

Once the flour has been sifted into a container, you should now add the milk and the sugar to the flour. Mix it well and make sure that there are no pockets of air trapped inside the container.

Step 3: Add The Butter And Flavoring

After mixing the milk, sugar, and flour together, you should now put in the melted butter and the vanilla essence to the mix. Once again, mix all the ingredients thoroughly, and make sure that your batter is free of lumps.

Step 4: Add The Eno Fruit Salt

The last ingredient you will have to put in your container is the Eno fruit salt. Simply sprinkle it over your batter and mix is well with the other ingredients.

Step 5: Let The Batter Rest

One common mistake a lot of people commit when making pancakes is not letting the batter rest. Once you have mixed your batter thoroughly, leave it aside to rest for 3 minutes up to 5 minutes.

Step 6: Heat And Grease The Pan

Place your frying pan on the stove, and set your stove at low to medium heat. Once the pan is hot enough, place the butter into it and make sure that the surface of the frying pan is thoroughly greased.

Step 7: Place The Batter In The Pan

Using a ladle or a spoon, put a decent amount of your batter in your pan in the shape of a circle. Once your batter has been laid flat on the pan, do not move it to avoid ruining the shape of your pancake.

Step 8: Flip The Pancake

After a minute or so, you will see bubbles forming on the top surface of your pancake. Once these bubbles pop, you should go right ahead and flip your pancake over. If you fry one side of your pancake to long, you may end up with an unevenly cooked pancake. Wait for a minute or so after flipping the pancake to end up with a nice golden brown color.

Pro Tips

Making Flourless Pancakes

If you happen to run out of flour but are still craving for more pancakes, you can easily make a batch by using a couple of bananas lying around your kitchen. Simply use a banana or two with a couple of eggs, and you’ll end up with nice smelling pancakes that somewhat resemble banana bread. To do this, simply mash your bananas thoroughly with a fork.

Once your bananas have been mashed, mix in some eggs and combine both ingredients thoroughly. After mixing the ingredients, cook it in your frying pan as you would a typical pancake.

Making Perfect Pancakes

Though pancakes are pretty simple and easy to make, a lot of people still commit mistakes that make them end up with chewy, burnt, or less appealing pancakes.

If you want to make the perfect pancake, you must avoid overbeating the batter, placing the batter in a pan that hasn’t been heated or greased yet, setting your stove’s temperature too high, flipping your pancakes more than once or not allowing your pancake batter to rest before cooking it in the pan.

Avoiding these common mistakes will take you one or two steps closer to achieving a perfectly fluffy and golden brown pancake.
