Eggnog Pancakes And Eggnog Syrup

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Today, I’m sharing my eggnog pancakes and eggnog syrup recipes. It’s that time of year when eggnog is abundant in the grocery stores. Our favorite eggnog is from Costco, we may seem like eggnog snobs, I’m not sure.

Mark is especially fond of eggnog, he could drink it every day. Sometimes we’ll thin it with a little milk to make it go a little further. Other times it goes in the glass straight from the carton, gotta love it!

Eggnog seems to make the holidays even more special. We serve it with lots of our holiday meals during both November and December. Our guests often comment that they have forgotten how great it tastes.

Do you have a favorite brand of eggnog? It’s the perfect drink for the holidays, right? These pancakes are so easy to make and they are the true holiday breakfast of choice at our home.

Can you picture yourself and your family in Christmas pajamas, enjoying a plate of pancakes? I love bacon, lots of bacon, add that to the plate and it’s like a piece of heaven for me. My favorite juices are orange juice and grape juice, and either one goes well with this breakfast meal.

Do you love pancakes slathered with butter and warm syrup? Then these recipes will be perfect for you and your family.

Did I mention these are so easy to make? Grab a bowl and you will be cooking them on the griddle in no time.

Step Five

Heat your skillet, grease it beforehand so pancakes don’t stick to the pan. Once the skillet is hot enough, scoop 1/4 cup of batter onto the hot pan for each pancake.

Cook until the bottom side is golden brown and you see the top’s “bubble”.

Eggnog Syrup

Step One

Gather the three ingredients, eggnog, Maple syrup, and butter.

Ingredients

Step Two

Grab a saucepan, combine the eggnog and the Maple syrup. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, let it simmer until the volume condenses about 25%. This is called “cooking it down.”

Once it cooks down (about 45 minutes), remove the pan from the stove and stir in the butter.

How do I store the leftover pancakes?

I store mine in baggies in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.

Can I freeze the cooked pancakes?

I love freezing pancakes to eat another day. You can spread them out on a cookie sheet and place them in the freezer for an hour, then place them in freezer bags with waxed paper between each pancake.

What can I serve with eggnog pancakes?

  • Fresh fruit
  • Cooked sausage patties or links
  • Cooked bacon (remember you can bake bacon-less mess)
  • Scrambled eggs
  • Fried eggs

Can I serve some eggnog as a drink when eating these pancakes?

You may experience “eggnog overload” if you do that, but for those of us who love eggnog, it makes for a great combination.

Final Word

I hope you try making both my eggnog pancakes and eggnog syrup. For some reason, it seems like we can only get eggnog once a year here in Utah and that’s during the holidays, so I buy several 1/2 gallons when I see them.

If you try these two recipes, let me know how it goes, I’d love to hear from you. I especially want to hear how you like the flavor of each recipe.

It’s all about cooking from scratch and teaching our kids and grandkids this very important skill.

Please keep prepping, we must. May God Bless this world, Linda

    I Love eggnog pancakes. When my husband was alive I had some eggnog in the fridge and I thought WHY NOT?
    so I made pancakes and they were good. I have made eggnog French toast too. It is also good. Another way to
    use it is to make bread pudding with it too.
    I like to “play” with my food.

    Can you have to much eggnog? I love the stuff. I start looking for it in November when it’s a little cheaper or after Christmas. And did you know you can freeze it? We buy as much as we can after the Holidays and freeze a couple of half gallons. It’s never lasted past 3 months co I can’t say what the freezer life span is 🙂
