These eggnog pancakes are delicious light and fluffy, eggnog flavored pancakes that are perfect for a holiday breakfast.
One thing I love this time of year is that I can buy eggnog. I love drinking eggnog and I love recipes made with eggnog. So this year I was really excited to try out some eggnog pancakes.
These fluffy eggnog pancakes are such a delicious breakfast option. They’d be great to make all December long any day, of the week, but especially if you want to have an extra festive and delicious breakfast or brunch option.
Pair them with some bacon, sausage, eggs, or fruit for a perfect filling and hearty breakfast.
They’re made with simple ingredients. You only need 10 ingredients, most of which you probably keep in your kitchen all year long. Just grab a bottle of eggnog, and make these pancakes, and some eggnog cookies and you’re set.
This is a quick overview of the ingredients you’ll need for this Eggnog Pancake Recipe. Specific measurements and full recipe instructions are in the printable recipe card below.
- all purpose flour
- baking powder
- granulated sugar
- cinnamon and nutmeg
- vanilla extract
How to make Eggnog Pancakes?
- Add the dry ingredients to a large bowl. You’ll mix together flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg and whisk them together.
- In another bowl, stir together the wet ingredients; you’ll mix the eggnog, eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract.
- Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir them together until they are just mixed. You’ll have some small lumps in the batter.
- Preheat a griddle or skillet over medium heat and grease it with butter. Pour the batter onto the skillet, measuring it with a 1/4 cup. Leave a little space between them to help you have space to flip the pancakes. Let the pancakes cook until the top of the batter starts to bubble, and you can see the bottoms are golden brown. Then flip them over to cook until the other side is also golden brown and the pancakes are cooked through.
Tips and Tricks:
- Don’t overmix the batter! The pancakes will turn out dense, and not fluffy if you mix them too much.
- If you pancake edges get brown too fast, and still aren’t cooked in the middle this means the temperature is too high. Lower the temperature slightly to make sure the pancakes cook to be perfectly golden, and cooked throughout. Every stope top and griddle are different so we can’t know exactly what your stove top needs for this recipe.
