I really love the Christmas season, family gatherings, and cooking up yummy things to eat, and I especially love when I get inspired, and making eggnog syrup from Evan William’s Original Southern Eggnog was, well, deliciously inspired! If you have ever tried this warm, festive beverage, you’ll know what I mean. It takes pure maple syrup to a whole new level. If you find that you like this recipe, you may also want to try my GF-DF Lemon Blueberry Swedish pancakes or French Crepes with caramel apple compote, both which satisfy any allergist missing their favorite breakfast items.

Evan Williams' Egg Nog
Kentucky Bourbon Eggnog is a perfect addition to maple syrup.

The holiday’s have a tendency to bring out the baking, cooking, and ‘love me some morning breakfast’, especially on the weekends. My youngest son and his girlfriend came for a visit this weekend, so when I mentioned I would be making pancakes with Southern Eggnog Syrup, they were both out of their beds as soon as the smells began wafting down the hallway.

This handheld pancake contraption helps the pancakes come out in a uniform size.

Our other son got married this past summer and we had a full weekend of events, including a pancake feed for over 100 guests the morning of the wedding! My husband, who was the pancake chef extraordinaire, decided a pancake pour would be a great investment. He was right, and now I have it to use at home; a bonus especially if you are making little dollar size pancakes. It helps keep them close to the same size, which is preferred when stacking.

Gluten-free Pancake Cooking
Wait for the bubble before you flip the pancake!

Remember to always wait for the edges to slightly dry and bubbles to form in the middle of the pancake before flipping it over. Otherwise, it is too easy to have the batter sling across the skillet. I love crispy little edges on the outside of my pancake. In order to achieve this, you must have a hot skillet that has been coated in oil. Once the skillet has reached high heat, you may turn it down to medium high if you are noticing your pancakes browning too much before the bubbles form.
