Twelve Days of Christmas: Eggnog Pancakes

Just a little syrup please

Just a little syrup please

These pancakes come out so moist and fluffy, but beware they are quite heavy and one should be enough for most people. I am not most people.

Eggnog Pancakes

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cinnamon sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 pinches salt
  • 2 pinches cloves
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 cup eggnog

Mix dry ingredients and create a well in the center. Crack in egg and oil and beat well. Pour in half the eggnog and mix everything together. Gradually add remaining eggnog until batter is thick but able to pour evenly. Heat a griddle and cook pancakes until golden brown on both sides. Do not press down after flipping the cakes and pour smaller amounts then normal so pancakes do not get too thick. (We used our awesome Star Wars molds, so ours were kind of thick.) Serve with butter and pure maple syrup.

    These sound great, Greg, but I’m with you. There is just something so lonely seeing but one pancake on a plate. They are meant to be stacked.

  6. Kristy says:

    I have no doubt one would not be enough for any of us either. πŸ™‚

    I heard that eggnog is not to be taken lightly πŸ˜‰ In pancake form, you are right that one must be enough for “most people’

    but one is too lonely, right?
