Oh Christmas, it seems like we always wait so long for it and then within a few hours it's all over and done with.
One of the things I most look forward to during this holiday, is the food, and you can't think of Christmas in the States without thinking of Eggnog.
Truthfully I had never tried it until I moved to the USA back in 1998, the only reason I even knew it existed was from all the hollywood movies we would watch.
But, it's since become one of my favorite Christmas pleasures.
Apart from drinking it, one of my favorite ways to serve eggnog is in pancakes and these are SO fluffly and airy, they rise up beautifully. We have it for Christmas morning breakfast or even for dinner if we're too full from the Ham or the Turkey.
It doesn't mean you're only allowed to have it at this time of the year, go ahead and try it ANY time, they are delicious.
* 2 cups all-purpose flour
* 4 teaspoons baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 2 eggs
* 1 1/2 cups eggnog
* 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg if desired. In another bowl, beat eggs, eggnog and butter; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Pour batter by 1/4 cupfuls onto a lightly greased hot griddle. Turn when bubbles form on top; cook until second side is golden brown.
Notes: I use the Shamrock Farms or Southern Comfort Eggnog
