  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 small eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil

How to make evaporated milk pancakes 

Measure and gather all the ingredients in one place.

Add the sifted flour to a large bowl. Then add in the rest of the dry ingredients into the large bowl and whisk.

Next, crack the eggs into a small bowl, then pour into the bowl of dry ingredients

Or, make some delicious evaporated milk pancakes with no eggs

Can you make pancakes with evaporated milk but no eggs? You sure can! Simply replace the eggs with an extra 1/4 cup of evaporated milk and you’ll be all set. 

These evaporated milk pancakes with no eggs will have a different texture due to the substitutes. They’ll be less rubbery and eggy and somewhat more fluffy.

The eggless pancakes will also be able to soak up more syrup and butter as they’re less rubbery than pancakes made with eggs.

I prefer mine with eggs, but, the way you choose to make them will depend entirely on your preferences or dietary restrictions. 

Here’s how to make eggless evaporated milk pancakes

  • Measure out all of the ingredients listed above, but omit the eggs and replace instead with an extra 1/4 cup of evaporated milk.
  • Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl.
  • Then heat up a non stick skillet or griddle on medium heat and cook each pancake for 1 minute on each side.
  • Serve these pancakes warm! 

Storing these pancakes made with evaporated milk

Did you double this recipe? If you did, or you just have some leftovers, then the best way to store these is to place them in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 5 days (the milk and eggs are perishable, so they will not last more than 5 day in the fridge)

Can I freeze evaporated milk pancakes?

Yes you can. To freeze, first place any leftover pancakes on a baking tray, or plate (or whatever has enough space to fit all the leftover pancakes and also fit comfortably into your freezer) in a single layer and freeze for about 1-2 hours. 

Next, remove the frozen pancakes from the tray, place them in a freezer bag or ziplock bag, seal tightly and freeze for up to a month!

Freezing them this way prevents the pancakes from sticking to each other, so they’re pretty easy to pull out, even if you want just one pancake at a time!

Can these pancakes be used for meal prep?

These are perfect for meal prep and can be easily reheated in the morning. To reheat, place the pancake on a plate and microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute when you’re ready to eat them! 

These pancakes are amazing with just butter and syrup, however, you can also try out these easy pancake topping ideas if you want to have some fun with your pancakes!
