Eggnog Pancakes Recipe

During the holidays, my family is delighted when they awake to a platter piled high with these featherlight flapjacks. Pancakes made from a mix just can't compare to these homemade delights. —Marilyn Mueller, Fayetteville, Arkansas
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg, optional
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups eggnog
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted


  • 1. Mix flour, baking powder, salt and, if desired, nutmeg. In another bowl, whisk together eggs, eggnog and butter; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  • 2. Preheat griddle over medium heat. Lightly grease griddle. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto griddle; cook until bubbles on top begin to pop and bottoms are golden brown. Turn; cook until second side is golden brown. Yield: 12 pancakes.

"They needed some sugar to sweeten them a bit, and there wasn't nearly enough liquid- it turned out more like biscuit batter."

"Wonderfully easy with a subtle, not over powering, egg nog flavor."

"These tasted delicious! I was concerned there was no sugar listed but they tasted great without it. I did need to add some skim milk to thin the batter."

"I did have to add about an extra cup of eggnog to thin the batter to pouring consistency but these were wonderful pancakes! We loved them!"

"I, too, thinned the batter by adding more eggnog. When the batter reached the consistency of typical pancake batter, I cooked them and they were delicious! My whole family loved them! I will definitely make these again."

"I made these pancakes and they were more like cookie batter consistency. I thinned them with more eggnog until I felt they were thin enough to pour into the pan. They were very good. Next time I will think them even more. As eggnog is so thick itself, I think it would take more like 3-1/2 to 4 cups of eggnog."

"I just made these this morning. The batter was way too thick to use as directed. I thinned the batter with milk until the consistency was as it should be."

"The pancakes were good but the batter was a little stiff and I hardly stirred it since I know that strirring it too much will make them tough if you do. The pancakes were more like little cakes than pancakes. Not a lot of eggnog flavor which I wanted but I could taste it a little bit. They were light though and overall, good. There wasn't any sugar in the recipe either which made me think they could have been a little sweeter."
