Start off your holiday celebrations with a pile of crisp eggnog-scented waffles. A splash of rum is entirely optional, but highly recommended... it is the holidays, after all.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 6
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • 1¾ cups egg nog
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp dark rum (optional)
  1. In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and nutmeg.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg nog, buttermilk, canola oil, eggs and rum (if using). Pour into the bowl of dry ingredients, and mix thoroughly until the batter is smooth and free of lumps. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat a waffle iron. Once the waffle iron reaches the desired temperature, spoon batter to waffle iron and spread into an even layer (check your manufacturer's instructions to confirm how much batter you should be using - this varies from one machine to another). Cook until waffles are lightly golden and crisp on the outside, and cooked through inside.
  4. Transfer the finished waffles to a wire rack on a baking sheet and keep warm in a 200F oven in between batches.
