A local dairy, Morning Fresh, makes eggnog for the holidays and it’s fantastic.
It’s thick, creamy, and full of holiday spice like nutmeg and allspice. It’s hands down one of the best dairy eggnogs that I’ve tasted and during the holidays I always have a quart of it in the fridge.
We drink it but I also use it to bake with because it provides fantastic flavor. I promise this is not an ad for Morning Fresh, I just really like their nog.
So on one of my days off, I decided to use some nog in waffles. Oh and some rum.
This was a good decision.
Andrea’s Eggnog Waffles
- 2C Unbleached All Purpose Flour
- 1tsp Baking Soda
- 3TBSP Cane Sugar
- 1tsp Cinnamon
- 1/2tsp Allspice
- 1/4tsp Clove
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2C Eggnog (can use non-dairy eggnog**)
- 1/2C Water
- 1/2C Rum
- 2tsp Vanilla Extract
- Melted butter or coconut oil to brush on the waffle iron.
Start to heat up the waffle iron. In a large mixing bowl combine all of the dry ingredients and whisk. In a medium sized bowl, combine all of the wet ingredients and mix well. Slowly add the wet mixture to the dry and gently whisk until everything is incorporated.
Allow the waffle mixture to set for about five minutes.
Brush the waffle iron with butter/coconut oil and pour a 1/2C of batter into the center of the waffle iron. Close and cook for about three minutes or until the iron indicates the waffles are ready.
Repeat with remaining batter.
Serve while the waffles and toasty and warm!
This makes several waffles which can be frozen and reheated easily either in a toaster or toaster oven.
**You can use non-dairy eggnog but since it isn’t as thick as the dairy version, you’ll probably need to reduce the water down to 1/4C or less.
It’s the holidays! Crack open the nog and the rum for breakfast. Why not?
