You know the Holidays are truly here when you see Eggnog in the stores! I grew up with a father that LOVES eggnog and so it not only represents all the Holiday traditions for me, but also my dad! My family loves to have special breakfasts to celebrate seasons and holidays and I haven’t really shared a lot of them with you on Over the Big Moon, so that is my goal this year! For the Christmas season one of our favorite breakfasts is Eggnog Waffles! You can taste the eggnog, but it’s subtle and not overwhelming! And, we love to top them off with our Sweet Cinnamon Whipped Cream!
The other great thing about these homemade waffles is that you most likely have everything you need on hand, aside from the Eggnog and Heavy Whipping Cream. As you may know from previous posts, I’m a fan of Horizon Organics products are my Fav! So, I was beyond stoked that they carry Eggnog seasonly!
Here is the simple simple recipe! I love to make the batter in my Blendtec – makes the clean up so quick and takes all the work out of it for me! But, you can easily just mix it up in a couple bowls too!
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 4 large eggs
- 3 cups eggnog
- 1 1/2 cubes (12 tbsp) unsalted butter, softened
Sweet Cinnamon Whipped Cream:
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Waffles: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, eggnog, and softened butter. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. This batter won’t be perfectly smooth and that’s okay!
Cook according to your waffle iron instructions – until the waffles are golden brown!
Whipped Cream: Combine the heavy whipping cream, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and mix with beaters starting on a slow setting. Slowly increase and mix until the cream thickens and it start creating peaks. Don’t over beat!
Enjoy and pour yourself some fresh Eggnog too!
