Eggnog Pancakes with Maple Cranberry Syrup

Eggnog Pancakes with Maple Cranberry Syrup

The holiday season is officially in full swing now.  I, for one, am beyond excited about this time of year.  Not only do I get to spend more time at home with my family (baby it’s cold outside!), I am able to share that time around the table eating delicious food because let’s face it, isn’t that what the holiday season is all about?

I tend to make quick breakfasts most days but during December, I like to pull out all the stops and really enjoy comfort food leading up to Christmas.  I first found the Spiced Eggnog Pancakes recipe on the BHG site and started getting excited like a kid in a candy store.

I am the biggest fan of eggnog.  It is so comforting, decadent and just plain delicious.  I pretty much throw a cup of it in everything I make during the holiday season.  I knew these eggnog pancakes would be absolutely splendid for a family brunch or even Christmas morning.

I made no changes to the eggnog pancake recipe because I knew they would be perfect.  The one thing that could jazz them up even further was the addition of cranberries.  The color just screams holiday season so I love to add it to my recipes like this Eggnog Pancakes with Maple Cranberry Syrup recipe. I created the super simple syrup concoction by doing the following:

  • I added 2 cups of fresh cranberries (you can also use frozen) to a pan along with 1 cup of pure maple syrup and 2 tablespoons of butter.
  • I simmered the syrup until the cranberries began to burst a bit and soften and the syrup was warmed through.  Once the syrup thickened and blended together, I poured the sauce over each stack of pancakes.

I loved the tartness of the cranberries mixed with the sweetness and woodsy taste of the pure maple syrup.  It was such a great winter twist that I can’t wait to try again on Christmas morning.
