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.
Eggnog Pancakes And Eggnog Syrup
Kitchen Items You May Need
- Skillet, Griddle or Cast Iron Pan
- Sauce pan
- Pancake Turner
- Mixing Bowl
- Measuring Cups
- Measuring Spoons
As always, I gather the ingredients before I get started with the recipe.
Combine the flour, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt in a bowl and set aside.
Grab a bowl and whisk the eggnog, eggs, and melted butter.
Next, add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix thoroughly.
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”.
Then flip the pancakes over to cook through. Serve with hot syrup and butter. Enjoy.
Gather the three ingredients, eggnog, Maple syrup, and butter.
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.
It has an eggnog, caramel, maple taste and is so creamy and delicious! It makes about 2 cups of syrup. Serve warm over pancakes or waffles. Enjoy.

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.
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
