The hubby typically makes pancakes, it’s not my strong suit. I know that sounds ridiculous…but I think what often happens is that while I am making pancakes, I get distracted by one of my children needing something and then I end up burning them!
Recently, the hubby has been adding extra ingredients to our whole wheat pancake mix to spruce them up – they are quite tasty! This morning, on the last day of winter break, I decided to make pancakes for breakfast.
Searching through the pantry and refrigerator to make my own signature flavor, I saw the 1/2 gallon of eggnog my boys are close to finishing – the last one before the next holiday season. It certainly didn’t ruin the flavor of the pancakes! Once I told the boys what all I added to the mix, they decided that these should be called “Eggnog Pancakes” – so they are!
Not a super exciting picture – everyone was hungry and I was in a hurry. And I only burned one batch of the pancakes this time….
Makes 12-16 small, kid-sized pancakes
2 cups whole wheat pancake mix
1 1/2 cups milk
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons nutmeg
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup eggnog
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. You may need to add more milk or pancake mix to get the consistency you desire. Using a 1/4 cup measuring scoop, pour onto hot griddle. Cook until bubbles start to form on top, flip, cook until done. Keep warm in oven set to a low heat until ready to serve.
