Got leftover pancakes? Need an amazing Christmas breakfast recipe? You're going to LOVE these Eggnog pancakes. They can be made with spiked or regular eggnog. These pancakes are definitely on the sweet side, so read the notes if you don't want super sweet egg nog pancakes.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg.
In another large bowl, mix together the eggs, vanilla, and melted butter. Whisk in the eggnog until the mixture is well combined.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk together until just combined, without overmixing. If the mixture is too thick, whisk in a little water, ¼ cup at a time.
Preheat a large skillet. Spray it with cooking spray or brush with a little vegetable oil. Pour a scant ¼ cup of the pancake batter to the skillet. Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until small bubbles form at the top. Carefully flip and cook on the other side for 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and continue to cook the rest of the pancakes. Serve warm with maple syrup.
For less sweet pancakes, substitute 1 to 1.5 cups of milk for the eggnog.
If you don't have 2.5 cups of eggnog, use milk in addition to eggnog, as long as you have 2.5 cups of liquid. You can add a tablespoon or two of sugar if you want to add more sweetness, but even a cup of eggnog should give these pancakes enough sweetness without adding extra sugar.
