If you like the taste of eggnog, but just can't drink another sip, then perhaps these Christmas pancakes will give you another great way to enjoy the milky, spiced flavor of the holiday drink. I made them this morning and Zeon and I agreed -they were heavenly.
- 1 1/2 cups of flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 1/4 baking powder
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- a dash of cloves
- a dash of allspice
- 2 eggs
- 3 tbsp melted butter
- 1 1/4 cups eggnog
Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl and then mix the other ingredients in a separate bowl, beating the eggs together until well mixed. Combine the wet and dry ingredients.
Heat a skillet on medium heat -you'll know it's ready when a cold drop of water will bounce along the surface. Melt half a pat of butter on the pan and then pour out 1/4 of a cup of batter on the pan. While it will spread along the surface eventually, I like to smooth the batter out evenly with a fork. When the top of the pancake starts having bubbles pop on the surface, flip the pancakes. Cook for about 30 seconds to a minute more on that side and then slide it on a plate and start working on the next cake.
This recipe makes about 7 five inch pancakes.
If you can't eat gluten (I can't), the recipe can easily be changed to 1 1/2 cups of GF flour as long as you also add about a tsp of xantham gum as well.
