How to make eggnog pancakes step by step
Step 1. Grab a medium size bowl and crack an egg into it. Whisk it until nice and fluffy.
Step 2. Add eggnog to the mixture. I usually add 1 cup of eggnog and then look if i need to add more to thin the batter out when i add al the flour. Eggnog varies in texture
Step 3. Add flour, baking soda, pinch of salt and baking powder into the batter. Mix well. Add more eggnog if you feel like the batter is too thick.
After the last step, just cook your pancakes like you would do with regular pancakes. Scoop about a 1-2 tablespoon amount of batter into the buttered heated griddle forming a round shape for pancakes. When the dough becomes bubbly (about 1 minute) , flip it and cook for another 30 seconds.
Here is your perfect Christmas breakfast is ready! I really love how this eggnog fluffy pancakes taste, so rich, moist and incredibly fluffy!
Breakfast side dishes
You can serve this pancakes with slices of crispy bacon! Or even add some hashbrowns for a more filling meal. Also dont forget to top your pancakes with maple syrup or whipped cream! If you find your eggnog pancakes already on a sweet side, use whipped greek yogurt instead of whipped cream. It will add a great balance to the sweet dough.
If you love to add eggnog everywhere when in season just like i do, try my Bourbon eggnog cocktail recipe! Its rich, its flavorful and it taste like Christmas and New Year.
