These Easy Eggnog Pancakes are light, fluffy and so delicious that they deserve a spot on your holiday breakfast or brunch menu!
I hope you don’t mind another eggnog recipe. I know I just shared a recipe for glazed eggnog cookies, but I did tell you how much my family absolutely loves eggnog. The kids would have it everyday if possible. The Hubs even asked if I would make eggnog Alfredo — seriously!
And, he was only half joking.
I haven’t decided what to do about that one. I’m not sure that I want to waste a perfectly good bottle of eggnog in a dish that may or may not taste that great, so we’ll see.
Anyway, after we made the cookies, we decided to make pancakes with the leftover eggnog — nothing strange about that!
These pancakes are super easy to make! Basically, you just make a few changes to your favorite pancake recipe and use eggnog instead of milk.
Actually, because eggnog is so much thicker than milk, I used more liquid than I normally would. You could probably even add more, but I like pancakes to be just slightly on the thick side. And these have plenty of of that awesome eggnog flavor!
You can top the pancakes off with syrup, or even better, butter and honey — yum!
And for and extra special finish, add a generous helping of whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg on top!
This recipe makes about 10 large pancakes or 24 smaller ones. Personally, I like the smaller ones better — they’re fun to stack.
