Holiday Eggnog Pancakes

Well, I hope you all had a great Turkey Day! We had a wonderful surprise as our granddaughter, who didn’t want to travel being so close to having our second great-grandson, decided to go ahead and go where she boldly wanted to go but was afraid to travel, being 45 minutes from her doctor and hospital….. It brought about Ulric’s ride on the John Deere lawn mower with his dad and then his Pappy which he loved to no end.

Of course after munching all afternoon on apples and other good stuff and then after a big turkey dinner, he and his dad just kind of clonked out together on the couch, two peas in a pod I’d say!

I also found out that Eric, our soon to be son-in-law, loves the crispy skin of the turkey along with his son and as I haven’t had to fight anyone for that in years, as Husband could care less, I now find myself in competition that I haven’t had in many a coon’s age and no I am not politically correct, ha ha!

Any who, this is a great recipe to serve up during the Christmas season and would also be great for Christmas morning after the presents are open and the kids are starving after all the energy they just used up in their excitement over what Santa brought them from his bag of toys!

Holiday Eggnog Pancakes
  • 1-1/3 cups of flour or more depending on eggnog used
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 heaping tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 cups of eggnog (I used silk nog and it was a little thinner than homemade or regular therefore yielding a little extra flour)
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  1. Combine dry ingredients and mix.
  2. Whisk together the wet ingredients and add to the dry ingredients until just blended; do not over beat (if mix seems too runny, add a little sifted flour at a time to make the consistency of a normal pancake batter)..
  3. Cook about ¼ cup of batter per pancake on a preheated griddle at about 350 degrees until bubbles form on top, flip and cook for about another minute or until bottom is golden.
  4. Serve with lotsa butter and your favorite syrup or fruit especially apples!

More eggnog recipes to come this month and one of them is a whopper to say the least that hails from my nephew’s secret holiday favorites and one that all the neighbors comes to have a sip of and trust me that’s all of this one you would need as it is full of all kinds of liquor!!!!! Hope you enjoy and enjoy the rest of the weekend. Go Gators!

Hello again everyone as I have been very lax in the kitchen area of late. But I do have some things up my sleeve for the near future and I just wanted to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving! It’s gonna be a little quiet here tomorrow, just Husband, daughter and myself. Kenny’s daughter and family were gonna come down from up north and that got cancelled. One granddaughter and her family will be going to her hubby’s family this year and our other granddaughter is on the verge of having her second son, Niklaus who at least will be joining us for the Christmas holiday!

tomato soup cookies 003

Some time ago I posted our family’s Tomato Soup Cake that my grandma and mom made every year for Thanksgiving. Follow the same recipe for the cookies by going to the link I provided on tomato soup cake. The only difference here is that you make them by dropping a tablespoonful onto a greased cookie sheet and bake them in a 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes. As you can see by the picture, I baked some to the point I thought they were done enough and the second batch a little longer and they came out a little darker. The darker, more well done cookies were the choice of us all, but you can decide for yourself according to your preference. Our choice was based on the crunchiness of the cookie while they still retained their chewiness. I had been wanting to try this for quite some time now and my sister who also makes this cake every year, thought it was a great idea also; can’t wait to tell her tomorrow when we talk……………..  Well again, Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends out there and good vittles are right around the corner, YEAH, my kind of holiday!!!!
