Its been years since i shared an international recipe in my blog.I badly wanted to post a recipe this week.After searching so many recipes,i settled down with this eggless pancakes.I have never thought making pancakes at home is so easy and simple.As i have not tasted pancakes so far,i din’t have any idea about its softness & texture.My friends in abroad had told me,its like our South Indian thick dosa/Uttapam.But after i made this eggless pancakes on my own following this recipe,i was amazed to see my golden,fluffy & soft pancakes.I was very happy and proud that i made a popular(American) international breakfast recipe at home perfectly and that too in my first attempt.Basically pancakes are done using plain flour/Maida.Here i have used our regular chapathi atta/wheat flour and made small changes in the actual recipe to suit our taste.And I am completely happy with the results.Actually I halved the original recipe & tried it.So this quantity serves only one person.Just follow this recipe & once u get it right,u can double the same.
Friends,do try this not so sweet,soft,fluffy n healthy eggless pancakes recipe with wheat flour for your breakfast.Enjoy topping it with any pancake syrup like maple syrup,caramel sauce,honey or just choco chips.Tastes yummmm..!! Very soon i will share my favourite savoury pancakes recipeWinking.
Note:Please adjust the quantity of sugar if u like your pancakes to be sweet.Never skip baking powder which is the magic ingredient here.Just follow this recipe with my tips to achieve the best results.All the very best for beginners Happy.

Cuisine: International

Yields: 3 nos

  • Wheat flour/Atta - 1/2 cup ( I used aashirvaad)
  • Baking powder -1 tsp ( use fresh powders for best result)
  • Cinnamon powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Sugar - 1/2 tbsp
  • Water - 1 tbsp
  • Milk - 1/2 cup ( boiled, at room temp)
  • Cooking oil - 1/2 tbsp ( use odourless oil)
  • Melted Butter - 1 tbsp

  • Mix with a whisk gently.Do not over beat it.The consistency of batter would be thick at the same time it should be pourable as shown in the picture.Adjust the quantity of milk based on the flour u use.But add 1-2 tbsp extra and definitely not more than that.
  • After mixing the batter,rest it for 10 minutes which is very important. The baking powder will react with other ingredients and gives you a fluffy pancake.

  • Heat a dosa pan. I used non-stick pan here.Iron griddle works the best.Make sure the pan is not over heated.To check the right temperature of the pan,just sprinkle few drops of water & if the water sizzles slightly,pan is just right.
    • Never let the pan smoke.Heat of the pan is very very important to get nice colored,uniformly cooked pancakes.If your pan is over heated,u will not be able to make round pancakes.Shape won’t be proper.Also the color of pancakes turn dark brown. 
    • In case if the pan is over heated,switch off the flame for sometime & then make pancakes.It will come out well.Also u should cook the pancakes only in low to medium flame.
  • Grease the pan with butter and simmer the flame completely.Then pour the batter.Spread the batter lightly with a back of ladle but the pancake should be thick enough.So do it carefully.
  • Keep the flame low & cook one side till u see bubbles all over the pancake.Now flip it.U will see the golden colored top.Cook the other side for few seconds and remove in a plate.
  • Serve it with butter & syrup/Honey !

Enjoy !


  • Adjust the quantity of milk based on the atta u use.I used aashirvaad here.
  • You can replace atta with maida/all purpose flour.But i guess u won’t do,hehe..
  • Do not use baking powder more than the mentioned quantity.If u use more baking powder,pancake may taste bitter.
  • Do not get confused with baking powder & baking soda.Use only baking powder.
  • If u have frozen butter,first melt it in a pan and then add to the batter.
  • Do not make the batter thin or spread it well.Pancakes are supposed to be thick.So spread the batter lightly and cook in low flame for best results.
  • Adding cinnamon powder & vanilla essence is for flavor.So don’t avoid it.Add more sugar for sweet tasting pancakes.
