Just an interesting twist on pancakes.
I do not fix pancakes often but I have had this nagging desire for them and then I found this recipe.
I have paired it with faux sausage patties from Morningstar for a vegetarian breakfast... lunch, or dinner!
1 1/4 c. all-purpose FLOUR
1 Tbsp. SUGAR
1 1/2 tsp. BAKING POWDER
1/2 tsp. NUTMEG
1/2 tsp. SALT
3/4 c. EGGNOG
1 large EGG
2 Tbsp. melted BUTTER
1 tsp. VANILLA EXTRACT
Confectioner's sugar for dusting if desired
Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt in a medium bowl.
Whisk together the eggnog, egg, butter and vanilla in a small bowl.
Add the eggnog mixture to the flour mixture stirring just until the flour mixture is moistened.
Don't over mix the batter as this will make your pancakes tough.
A few lumps in the batter is just fine and they will cook out anyway.
Brush a nonstick griddle or large skillet with oil.
Using a scant 1/4 c. for each pancake, pour the batter onto the griddle.
Cook until bubbles begin to appear and the edges of the pancakes are dry, about 2 minutes.
Turn the pancakes over and cook until lightly browned, 1-2 minutes longer.
Transfer the pancakes to a plate and keep warm.
Repeat with the remaining batter making a total of 12 pancakes.
Serve sprinkled with confectioner's sugar if desired.
Top with a pat of butter and drizzle with maple syrup.
