Festive eggnog pancakes with whipped cinnamon-nutmeg butter: Recipe

Toys for Tots provides Christmas gifts to children affected by deadly tornadoes, Afghan refugees

Retired Lt. Gen. Jim Laster joined ‘Fox & Friends Weekend’ to discuss how the organization is giving back to American families this holiday season.

It’s time to upgrade your holiday pancake routine. How does adding eggnog to the mix sound? If you’re like us, you’re nodding your head.

“I love serving festive eggnog pancakes at Christmas because they are easy, and you can make them ahead and warm/serve them as needed. Just pop them in an oven set to ‘warm’ or you can even microwave them for 20-30 seconds,” says Alea Chappell of Trendgredient. 

Chappell tops these pancakes with whipped cinnamon-nutmeg butter and hot “drunken” maple syrup mixed with bourbon. 

“The best part about this recipe is that the pancakes are cooked in festive holiday shapes!” she adds.

For The Hot Drunken Maple Syrup

Note: Omit bourbon if kids are present. I still suggest heating the maple syrup on the stove – it just makes the whole dish feel more festive and special.
