Eggless Pancake recipe, soft & fluffy

Eggless pancake recipe, soft and fluffy. Step by step detailed recipe for perfect golden pancakes made at home from scratch.
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time15 mins
Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Servings: 6 pancakes


  • Cast iron griddle


  • All purpose flour/ plain flour - 1 cup Maida
  • Milk - 1 cup
  • Brown or white sugar - 1 tbsp
  • Salt - 1/2 tsp
  • Oil - 1 tbsp
  • Baking powder - 1 tbsp
  • Butter and honey - For topping


  • Mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar with the whisk.
  • Add milk along with oil and mix gently. Set aside for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes again give it a mix.
  • Heat an iron skillet (dosa pan) until it gets hot. Switch off the stove and leave it for 5 minutes. Again switch on the flame and put it in medium flame.
  • Grease with butter and pour one big laddle full of batter carefully. Do not spread.
  • Wait until bubbles pop over the pancakes and the colour changes and flip carefully.
  • Cook the other side for a minute and transfer to serving plate.


  • Iron skillet (Iron dosa pan) works best to get golden brown colour and even cooking.
  • If you want you can cover and cook after flipping, this makes it even more soft and locks the moisture.
  • If you heat the pan really hot and make the pancake immediately, the pancakes turn dark brown in colour. That’s why I have heated the pan and switched off for a while to bring the temperature medium. ( I saw this in a video in you tube)
  • If the pan is too hot, the pancakes will have edges like flower. that is it wont be a perfect circle. So make sure to keep the heat medium.
  • Use a big ladle (or a 1/4 cup), so that for all the pancakes, you use only one and so all of them would be on same size.
  • You can use whole wheat flour as well, but experiment with the milk volume as it may take more.
  • You can add cinnamon or vanilla essence to make it more flavorful.
  • You can make this same with non diary milk and make it VEGAN by avoiding butter and honey.
