Christmas Breakfast Ideas
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 3 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 ¼ cups eggnog
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
Christmas Eggnog Pancakes
- In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, nutmeg, salt and sugar.
- Make a well in the middle and pour in the eggnog, egg, and melted butter; mix with a fork or whisk until smooth.
- Heat a griddle or large pan over medium-high heat (I set my griddle at 300-350 F). Pour or scoop ¼ cup of batter for each pancake. Wait until bubbles form to flip. Brown on the other side and serve with butter and maple syrup.
