  • 3/4 cup eggnog
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg


  1. Preheat pan or skillet to medium/medium low.
  2. Combine wet ingredients.
  3. Add in dry ingredients until just combined - some lumps are fine.
  4. Add butter to your pan or skillet and portion 1/3 cup scoops of pancake batter to the pan.
  5. Cook until bubbles appear on surface and flip, cooking an additional 2 minutes or so, until browned

Recipe Notes

You'll want to keep the heat low - the high sugar of the eggnog makes them brown very quickly.

If you want sweeter pancakes, feel free to add 1-2 tablespoons of sugar.

Serve with whipped cream sweetened with just a little bit of sugar and a dash of nutmeg, syrup, and, of course, sprinkles.
