I love the Holiday season; there are so many good things about it- one of those being eggnog! :) Here's a good recipe to use up any leftover eggnog you may have laying around. I made these a few times a few years ago, and remember really liking them. I made them again for dinner a few nights ago, and still liked them, but not as much as I like buttermilk pancakes. These are still very good though, with a hint of nice eggnog flavor. I've had good results using part whole-wheat pastry flour in the past. (My whole wheat pastry flour is gone now; I am patiently waiting for a large shipment of it to arrive!)
You may need some extra liquid (more eggnog or milk) to get the batter to the right consistency. I used 1/4 tsp. rum flavoring, but it was a very faint flavor- you may want to use more if you want more of that flavor.
2 cups all-purpose flour4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 1/2 cups eggnog
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1/4 teaspoon rum flavoring
In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. In another bowl, beat eggs, eggnog and butter; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. If batter is too thick, add additional eggnog, or milk. 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.
