I’ve been on a real egg nog kick this week! Although I’m not the biggest fan of drinking eggnog, I really love eggnog flavored sweets. Yesterday I blogged about the eggnog pound cake I make every year for Christmas. The other eggnog recipe we have come to thoroughly enjoy in our home this time of year are delicious eggnog waffles. I’m including this recipe that is large enough to make for a crowd. I love this because if you are hosting family or friends at your home for the holidays and need something simple but festive for breakfast or brunch…look no further! I will usually make this much for just my little family of four. It’s great to refrigerate or freeze the left overs for my boys to have for the next couple of days or at a later time. These waffles are simple and will certainly impress your guests.
This recipe makes twenty 4-inch waffles
4 C All-purpose flour
4 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons baking powder
1 Teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 Teaspoons salt
1 Teaspoon Baking soda
3 1/2 C Egg nog
2/3 C Vegetable oil
4 Large eggs
Combine ingredients in a large mixing bowl until well blended and smooth in texture. Let your batter sit for at least 5 minutes before using. Prepare your waffle maker (I use setting 4 on mine).
Pour 1 1/2 cups of batter onto preheated waffle maker and spread batter evenly over the grid. Allow batter to bubble for about 10 seconds, then cover the lid and wait for your waffles to be ready. (My waffle maker will display a green light when waffles are finished). Carefully remove waffles when ready and repeat until batter is gone.
Serve immediately or freeze to use at a later date.
Suggested toppings: maple syrup, fruit syrups, cinnamon butter, fresh berries, chopped nuts, powdered sugar, whip cream, egg nog ice cream
