Christmas Morning Breakfast | Eggnog Pancakes
Christmas morning you can be guaranteed of 3 things in our household.
3. Baileys & Coffee
I absolutely love Christmas morning. I'm always without fail, the first person up. I might be 30 years old, but try telling that to the 7 year old girl inside me. The girl who still races downstairs in anticipation of PRESENTS, I'm pretty much Peter Pan, I never want to grow up.
The only thing I enjoy more than unwrapping my own gifts, is watching my kids dive into theirs. The excitement and pure joy on their faces brings back fond memories of my own childhood. Oh to be a kid again...
It goes without saying, opening presents works up quite the appetite. Good thing I know my way around the kitchen and can pretty much whip up a batch of pancakes with my eyes closed. This morning I decided to use up some of our leftover eggnog, for an extra special and festive breakfast.
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
3/4 cup eggnog
1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
maple syrup for serving
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt.
In a separate bowl, whisk together, eggnog, milk, and eggs. Add to dry ingredients until just moistened.
Spoon batter using 1/4 cup portions onto lightly oiled griddle or pan. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until bubbles form on the top and underside is golden. Flip and cook for 1 minute. Repeat with remaining batter.
Yields 7-8 pancakes
