Eggnog Silver Dollar Pancakes with Nutmeg Syrup

by Ree Drummond December 03, 2013

"I could have made eggnog from scratch, but I was really after a quick-and-easy pancake recipe. So I wound up incorporating the flavors of eggnog so that these could be enjoyed anytime you need an eggnog fix. They turned out just heavenly, and topped with a buttery nutmeg-spiked syrup … well, they were pretty much the most delicious things ever. "
15 min. prep time 45 min. total time
50 (3-inch) pancakes


Nutmeg Syrup

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 Half Stick (1/4 cup) Land O Lakes® Butter
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (more to taste)


3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons baking powder
2 teaspoons nutmeg
3 cups buttermilk (plus more for thinning)
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons rum extract
1 Half Stick (1/4 cup) Land O Lakes® Butter, melted
Additional Land O Lakes® Butter for cooking and serving
Chopped pecans or walnuts, if desired


For the Nutmeg Syrup

Combine all syrup ingredients in medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a gentle boil, stirring 6 to 8 minutes, until golden brown and slightly thickened. Mixture will be foamy during the cooking process. Remove from heat and set aside.

For the Eggnog Pancakes 

Whisk together dry ingredients in large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine buttermilk, eggs and rum extract then drizzle into the dry ingredients, stirring gently. Stir in the melted butter.

To cook pancakes, heat a griddle over medium-low heat. Smear butter all over the surface, then drop tablespoonfuls of batter on the griddle. Cook 1 to 1 ½ minutes on the first side, then flip and cook for an additional 30 to 45 seconds on the second side. Continue until all pancakes are cooked.

Serve pancakes with extra butter, warm Nutmeg Syrup and pecans or walnuts, if desired.
