eggnog pancakes

Happy Thanksgiving!  We enjoyed these pancakes this morning while listening to Christmas music- the holidays are so joyous.  These pancakes are GREAT and have just entered the seasonal rotation.  My husband thought the best way to eat them is with a little dusting of powdered sugar and a little maple syrup.  As we ate breakfast my husband told us that in Russia they enjoy "Pancake Week" once a year.  That week he and his companion made a different kind of pancake every day of the week starting with banana pancakes then chocolate pancakes leading up to the pancakes his companion made- Kool Aid pancakes. He says they were pretty bad.  Stick with these.

eggnog pancakes (Better Homes and Gardens, December 2012)
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (I used pumpkin pie spice because we're out of nutmeg)
2 lightly beaten eggs
2 cups eggnog
1/4 cup oil

In a large bowl, mix together the ingredients in the order given.  Cook pancakes on a griddle 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve with powdered sugar and maple syrup.
