iNog v1.3

Well it's exactly one month to Christmas, so time to kick it into high gear, egg-nog wise. Time to get creative, think outside the box... and seeing as today was relatively warm, we took the opportunity to decorate outside... - the back balcony and the front window. TECHNICALLY although I say no decorations before December 1st, one must accept that even with global warming, it still gets COLD in Canada this time of year, and so putting up your Christmas Light before the 1st is perfectly acceptable.

So today to get us in the mood, (Ok I don't really need the help, I just love me an excuse to have egg-nog) I made...

Egg-Nog Pancake.

OK I can't remember where I found this recipe but WOWWEE! WOW! WOW! Gonna be making this one again!

Here's the recipe
-6 eggs (not kidding!!! I'd say 6 Lg eggs or only 5 Ex-Lg eggs)
-1 and 1/3 cups gourmet Egg Nog
-1 cup all purpose flour
-3/4 tsp ground nutmeg
-1/2 stick (1/4) butter
-1/2 cup sliced almonds (optional, I didn't have any so I used chopped walnuts instead and that was just fine!)
-maple Syrup

Preheat oven to 425 deg F.

Mix eggs in a large mixing bowl with electric mixer or food processor with metal blade.

Add egg nog, flour and nutmeg. Mix until blended. The batter will be slightly lumpy (and runny, but don't worry!)

Place butter in a 9" x 13" baking dish. Place in oven until melted; do not let it brown. Remove from oven and immediately pour batter into pan.

Sprinkle top with almonds, if desired.

Bake in middle or lower third of oven for 15-20 minutes or until puffed and golden.

Serve immediately with syrup.

Makes 6 servings.


I know it doesn't look appetizing, but I can assure you we ate almost the entire thing for breakfast this morning!

I Nog, therefore I am.

It's got a different consistency than a regular pancake ... It's more of a flan in consistency (I guess) but the taste is where it's at and the nuts on top really, um, top it off!

Honestly I'll be having this again on the weekend! YUM-MY!


You know what would be good and would make this thing look better? If you separated the eggs. Baked the thing without the egg whites until it's pretty much done and then whipped up the egg whites into a meringue with some powdered sugar and maybe almond extract or something else yummy. Scoop it on top and stick back in the oven to brown for a few minutes. That would be awesome, I think. And it would look really cool

Hmmmm interesting idea I just might try that this weekend!

Thanks for the idea...

...and, of course, you need to steal my idea and create eggnogg butter to melt over top of it.
