Eggnog pancakes with nog maple syrup

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 egg
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!

Are there eggnog lovers in your family? How do you like to use eggnog in your kitchen? What will your family be having for breakfast on Christmas morning?


  1. How many pancakes does this recipe make? I may have to quadruple it to feed the teenaged son...

  2. It makes about 8 medium-sized pancakes. If your boy needs more, it is easily doubled :)

  3. Wow these look just amazing Amy! So seasonal, and I love the use of eggnog - I find drinking it straight has become a bit rich for me, but I could definitely use it in cooking! Yum!

  4. Those have to happen here tomorrow morning!

  5. We have lots of egg nog lovers in our family! I discovered silk-nog (soy egg nog) last year and fell in love. It is not quite as rich but has all the yummy flavor and creamy texture! Normally we just drink it straight from the glass (OK - carton) but I like this pancake recipe! I am all for breakfast ideas that can be made ahead of time and put in the freezer. I may just do that tomorrow morning so we can enjoy these for a few mornings this week!

  6. Just made these for a lazy Saturday treat. They are excellent! Fluffy and so tasty. Thank you for a great recipe!

  7. Brilliant! I always use nog in pancakes, but had never heard of using it in the syrup! thanks for the tip!
