Eggnog Pancakes


"You will love these big fluffy pancakes even if you don't like eggnog. It's a great way to start any day, especially Christmas morning. I suggest clarifying the butter but you don't have to if you don't want to."

The site didn't add that you have to clarify the butter so that the pancakes won't burn. They did however add a link at the bottom of the recipe showing how to clarify butter. For the purposes of this recipe you don't have to completely clarify it though, just heat the butter in the microwave and skim off the fat that floats on top before adding it to the mix. It is also nice if you add the hot butter to the cold milk so that it solidifies again and creats butter pockets in the pancakes when they cook.


I love this recipe, I have made it every year on Christmas morning for the last 5 years. I add 1% milk to make the consistency better, start with 1/4 cup and add as desired. Usually 1/4 cup will do. I also don't mess with clarified butter (don't have the time) I just use oil like my Mom used to and it works great.

They were okay. They were way too thick. I added milk to make them more runny and then they turned out good. If it wasn't for the milk I added they would turn out burnt on the outside and runny on the inside b/c they were too thick. I think a 3/4 cup of milk should be added to the recipe to make better pancakes.
