Recipe Wednesday!

Since it's so close to Christmas, this definitely needs to be a Christmas recipe ...hmmmm- which one - there are so many favorites at Christmas... Got it - this is a great Christmas morning breakfast!

Eggnog Pancakes

• 1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
• 1 tablespoon sugar
• 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• Pinch nutmeg
• 1 1/2 cups eggnog (can use light)
• 2 tablespoons oil
• 1 large egg, beaten

1.In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Whisk to blend ingredients.

2.Preheat griddle to medium-high (I set my electric skillet to 300 degrees F).

3.In a separate bowl, stir together eggnog, oil, and egg. Pour into dry ingredients and whisk just until dry ingredients are moistened. Batter will be fairly thick.

4.Drop batter by quarter-cupfuls onto oiled skillet. Cook pancakes until bottoms are golden brown and bubbles appear on the surface. (Because the batter is so thick, check the bottoms before bubbles break at the surface so they don't burn.) Turn and cook other side. Keep warm in oven until all the batter is cooked.

5.Serve pancakes warm with butter and syrup or honey. Enjoy!

Serves 4 to 6.
