Christmas Pancakes

This pancake recipe was a fun morning meal for my boys.  Every now and then I like to make something special "just because" and surprise them.  

I remembered what a hit our Harry Potter pancakes were and figured I could make some fun holiday pancakes as well. 

We took our favorite pancake recipe and I substituted half of the milk for eggnog.  I am sure that I could have substituted all the milk for eggnog but since my youngest son really doesn't like eggnog I didn't want them to have an overpowering taste he might not like.  

I also used holiday sprinkles and some bright red and green M &M's to make them even more festive.  I did not mix the sprinkles and chocolate chips into the batter I just sprinkled them on top while baking.  That way we could really see the sprinkles and colors!

We always make a huge batch of pancakes and freeze any leftovers so be warned this makes quite few pancakes! 

Here's the recipe:

2 eggs
2 cups flour
1 Cup Eggnog
1 cup skim milk
2 TBSP white vinegar
2 TBSP sugar
4 TBSP vegetable oil
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
Holiday Sprinkles
Holiday M & M's 

  • Beat egg in large bowl until fluffy.  In a separate container, add white vinegar to the milk and let sit for a few minutes.    
  • Add the eggnog to the eggs and then gradually add in the flour.  Pour in the sour milk.  Beat in all remaining ingredients until smooth.  
  • Heat griddle or skillet and grease with vegetable oil or butter.  To test griddle sprinkle it with some water.  When the water bubbles and jumps around the heat is just right.
  • Using a 1/4 cup measure pour pancake batter onto griddle.  Sprinkle with holiday sprinkles and add the M&M's.  When pancake is puffy around the edges and holes appear on the backside; flip pancake over.  Continue cooking until golden brown. 

We always top ours with a dollop of whipped cream and a few more sprinkles (my boys add syrup too but I prefer mine plain).
