Festive eggnog pancakes with whipped cinnamon-nutmeg butter: Recipe

“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.
