Eggnog Pancakes


Let's talk about eggnog.  To me and probably many of you, it epitomizes the holidays.  Put a little SoCo or rum or brandy in there....delicious!  And drunk-making.  I loves me some eggnog.  The problem is, of course, that you don't sit down with a pint glass of eggnog.  That means you're usually left with the better part of a half-gallon of rich & creamy cholesterol-infused goodness which you remember to throw out a month later.  Instead, why not just incorporate the leftovers into other dishes?

I am mortified that I haven't set you guys up with my default pancake recipe yet.  The basic recipe (which is this, except with 2 cups milk instead of milk and eggnog, 6 tablespoons of oil, 2 teaspoons salt, and minus the vanilla) is outstanding.  The pancakes are soft, fluffy, and melt-your-mouth, but thick and filling at the same time.  I have no reason to use another recipe now or ever, because why mess with perfection?  Now I know that this recipe is a great springboard for experimentation--the addition of eggnog was amazing.  In fact, I may have said, "These are SO damn GOOD!" at least three or four times.

Every bite of these pancakes tastes like Christmas.  

Eggnog Pancakes 
-2 cups flour
-5 teaspoons baking powder
-1 1/2 teaspoons salt
-3 tablespoons sugar
-1 teaspoon cinnamon
-2 eggs, beaten
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
-1 1/2 cups milk (**FYI, I rehydrated some dehydrated milk for 1 cup and used 1/2 cup regular milk due to extenuating milk-less circumstances, and it worked great**)
-1/2 cup eggnog
-4 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil

1. Sift flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon together in a large mixing bowl.

2. Mix beaten eggs, vanilla, milk, eggnog, and oil together in a smaller bowl.  Add to the flour mixture and beat until smooth.

3. Heat a griddle or pan over medium-high heat.  When hot, add pancake batter in approximately 1/3-cup portions.  When the bubbles that form on the surface of the pancakes mostly disappear (sink inward), the pancake is ready to be flipped over.  Cook another minute or so before removing from the griddle.

-Makes 10-12 thick, fluffy, nicely-sized pancakes.  I would say it's enough for 4-5 hungry people.
