Here's something for the eggnog lovers! These golden pancakes are made with rich, sweet eggnog and an extra sprinkling of eggnog's finest note - nutmeg. A stack of these gets really dressed up when it's drenched in this festive nog maple syrup. Mmm, bring on Christmas morning!
Here's how I made them:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp granulated white sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 cup egg nog
2 tbsp butter, melted
In a large mixing bowl, I whisked together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg. To the dry ingredients, I added the egg, eggnog, and melted butter and stirred to combine.
I cooked the pancakes in a non-stick pan over medium to medium-low heat until golden on each side (on my stove dial, the sweet spot for pancakes is 4).
Here's how I made the nog maple syrup:
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup eggnog
I combined the maple syrup and the eggnog in a small mixing bowl and stirred it up. That's it! I poured it over a stack of the fluffy pancakes and it was eggnog pancake heaven! Both my kids loved them.
There's nog on top of more nog here, and that's a whole lot of Christmasy goodness!
