Eggnog pancakes are a great option for Christmas breakfast! They are easy and fast to make, everyone will love them, plus eggnog is super festive. 😉

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.

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. 😉

Eggnog Pancakes Recipe

5 / 5 (1 review)
Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 15 mins
Yield: 12 (4-inch) pancakes | Serves: 12


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups eggnog
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted


  1. Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat, about 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. In a medium bowl, beat the eggs, then whisk in the eggnog, vanilla, and melted butter. Whisk the eggnog mixture into the flour mixture, until combined. The batter will be thick, but should still be pour-able.
  3. Lightly grease the griddle or skillet, with butter or cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake onto the skillet or griddle. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until edges look set and that side is golden brown. Flip and let cook another 1-2 minutes, until golden. Repeat with remaining batter.
  4. Serve pancakes warm with your favorite pancake toppings.


Nutrition info and thickness of batter may vary depending on the eggnog. Add more eggnog to thin the batter, if needed.
