Special Ingredient in Eggnog Pancakes

A small amount of nutmeg really helps bring out a little more of that warm flavor from the eggnog. Not too much, just a nice touch. I’m not a huge fan of nutmeg, but it really works in this eggnog pancake recipe.

How to Know When Pancake Batter is Ready

The batter ends up being really thick once you mix the eggnog mixture and flour mixture together, but you should still be able to pour it. And the batter will still spread some when you pour it onto the griddle. (Best whisk ever.)

If your batter is too thick, add a little more eggnog to thin it out. One and a half cups of thick eggnog is the perfect amount in this recipe for me, but thickness of eggnog beverages may vary. 😉
