Eggnog Pancakes

It's eggnog season! Every year, I buy one delicious litre of eggnog, to enjoy during the holiday season. This year, I wanted to find some creative ways to cook with it, so for Pancake Sunday, I subbed in eggnog in my standard buttermilk pancake recipe. The result was a pancake that tasted a lot like french toast. They were light and fluffy and a great new way to use up that extra nog!

Eggnog Pancakes
Makes 12-14 

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups eggnog
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg (cinnamon would work too)
  • some butter to grease the skillet


  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the eggs with the eggnog and melted butter.
  • Using a spatula, combine the dry and wet ingredients to make a thick, lumpy batter, being careful not to over mix.
  • In a non-stick skillet, melt some butter over medium heat. Ladle 1/3 cup batter into hot skillet. Do not overcrowd the skillet because the pancakes will puff up and out as they cook.
  • When bubbles appear on the surface of the pancakes, and the edges begin to brown, flip the pancakes and cook the other side. 
  • Smother with maple syrup and a dollop of whipped cream.
