Making fluffy, delicious pancakes using egg whites instead of baking powder and baking soda is easy.


1 cup All-purpose Flour

2 Tablespoons Sugar

14 teaspoon sea salt

Two large eggs

Half cup Whole Milk

2 Tablespoons olive or other oil such as canola, sunflower, or canola oil

Butter or oil is needed to grease and cook the pancakes.

Make the batter

Mix the flour, sugar, and salt in a medium-sized bowl until well combined.

Separate the yolks from the whites of the eggs and place the whites in a separate bowl.

Add the vanilla extract, milk, and oil and whisk everything together.

Slowly add the wet ingredients (not the egg whites) to the dry mixture.

Mix until the batter is smooth and lump-free.

Whip the egg whites with an electric mixer in another bowl (ensure no egg yolks are present). The egg whites were whipped using an electric mixer at the lowest speed for 2 to 3 min. I then increased the speed. Fold this egg white mixture immediately into the batter, and combine well.

It would help if you made pancakes as soon as possible after preparing the batter.

Make the pancakes

Heat a non-stick pan or iron skillet, and add a little butter or oil.

Add one spoon to the pan, and cook it for about a minute until bubbles appear at the top and the bottom.

Flip the pancake gently and cook on the other side. This will help it cook faster. Add some butter to make the pancakes even more delicious if you need to.

Cook all the pancakes in the same manner until the batter has been finished. Enjoy your pancakes with butter, maple syrup, or other toppings!


The best way to enjoy pancakes is when they’re warm or hot. You can use self-rising flour, which already contains baking powder. So you don’t need to add any extra. Or you can follow the recipe instructions to separate the yolks from the whites. Then beat the whites until they form soft peaks before folding them into the batter. Add more flavors to your pancakes, such as cinnamon powder or other flavors you enjoy. Add one teaspoon of your favorite flavoring extract to the egg yolk mixture and mix it before you make the batter. Mix 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder with the flour before making the batter.
