Christmas is finally upon us, and I'm still not sure I'm ready for it. Not only have I been back in the states for just shy of two weeks, I'm also recovering (quite nicely I might add) from an eye injury. I went to my first street hockey meet up to have some fun, and got hit in the face from the ball. I was having a lot of fun and can't wait to return. Bren's been going for a couple of weeks, so I decided to join him and then my face wanted to make friends with the ball. It was more of a fight and my face lost, but enough about that and more about these delicious pancakes!!
We swapped the milk for egg nog and added a bit more cinnamon and nutmeg to the batter. They turned out great! If you're worried about them tasting more like a dessert than a breakfast, fear not! They have a hint of egg nog, but don't give you that sweet tooth ache. They're actually just shy of the sweet side. We toppd them off with whipped cream and butter rather than maple syrup.
In the spirit of the holidays, I also topped mine with sprinkles (but that's totally optional). These pancakes are similar to our other pancakes and a bit on the heavy side. Two pancakes and I was stuffed! Keep the holidays alive after Christmas, and make these on New Year's Eve as well!
