I may or may not have gone and bought more than one thing of eggnog to make sure that I don’t run out of my favorite Christmas time beverage.

This is truly a marriage of two favorites for me.  If you have spent any amount of time here, you know I love fluffy pancakes.  Coupled with my love all things eggnog and this has to go on the list of most-est favorites.

I don’t have one doubt, that once you get one good fork full of these, they will be on your most-est favorites list too.

So let’s make fluffy eggnog pancakes.

How To Make Eggnog Pancakes

Making these pancakes is super simple.  Not much different from regular pancakes.

Making the batter

Start out by melting the butter and then setting it aside for a moment.

separating egg yolks from egg whites

Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites.  Adding the yolks to the eggnog and setting the yolks aside.

Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg.

Add in the vanilla extract, melted butter, eggnog plus yolks to the dry ingredients. I like to use my hand mixer with the whisk attachment, but you could easily use a spoon or hand mixer to minimize the lumps.

After it is all mixed together, add in the egg whites, making sure not to over mix.

Cooking your pancakes

warmed griddle
When I make eggnog pancakes I warm it to 370 degrees.

Warm your griddle, or non-stick skillet to prepare for cooking.

I put my griddle on 370 degrees.

You can butter the griddle but since there is already butter in the mix it’s really not necessary.  I personally like the outside being a solid golden brown.  Adding butter changes the outside of the pancakes.

When my hubby makes them, he butters.  A little extra butter has never hurt anyone.  Butter if you feel so inclined my friend.

Cook your pancakes thoroughly on both sides, serve with warm maple syrup or sweet butter syrup.  Either way, you will not be disappointed.

Can I Refrigerate Eggnog Pancakes?

Yup!  And you can freeze them too.  They never last long enough to freeze in my house, but they are perfect to warm up for the kid for a day or two after I make them.  That is really as long as they will last.
