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!
- 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
- Combine dry ingredients and mix.
- 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)..
- 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.
- Serve with lotsa butter and your favorite syrup or fruit especially apples!
