Top Utah lifestyle blog, Among the Young, features the best egg nog Ricotta pancakes recipe. Perfect for Christmas morning – Read here now for the recipe!!
If you love pancakes and you love egg nog, then have I got a treat for you! This egg nog ricotta pancakes recipe is SO delightful. It is super simple and the taste of Christmas is clear as day in these egg nog delights.
I recently discovered you could FREEZE egg nog and I’m HERE FOR IT. Egg nog any time of the year? Yes please?
When it comes to ricotta pancakes, I’m definitely a newbie.
I LOOOOOOOVE ricotto on pizza, in ravioli, and in lasagna, but in pancakes? Hmmmm…
I tried a ricotta pancake recipe at one point and it was PAINFULLY BAD. I don’t know if I should blame the recipe? It’s definitely possible that I overmixed it. The world may never know.
*PRO TIP* Don’t over mix your batter. A few lumps are fine and dandy – no one wants tough pancakes!
What I DO know is that when a ricotta pancake is made correctly, it is fluffy and delightful.
My girls love this ricotta pancakes recipe – in fact, they call them our “fluffy” pancakes.
Egg Nog Ricotta Pancakes
The thought came to add egg nog to this pancake recipe because Christmas was in the air and I love egg nog – so why not?!
I was skeptical, but figured I’d give it a try.
ALSO – This is VERY important to me: Southern Comfort (non-alcoholic egg nog) is the egg nog of choice. It’s not too strong and it’s definitely not syrupy.
The result? This egg nog ricotta pancake recipe will be our new Christmas breakfast. It was THAT successful.
Even my husband (who rarely eats pancakes and prefers salt over sweets) came back for a second bite before he polished off an entire pancake.
It’s subtle but definitely egg nog. It’s warm and happy like Christmas morning.
Trust me when I say, this Egg nog Pancake recipe is a keeper in our family – I hope you try it and love it as much as our family does! Do you or someone you know love Egg Nog as much as I do?
