There are two things my son thinks are absolutely essential to have during the holiday season...cranberries and eggnog. He can hardly wait for Thanksgiving to be over so he can begin to see it popping up on the shelves. I have been hiding the 'nog in the back of the fridge so Andre' won't drink it all because I was planning to bake with it and was using it for Christmas breakfast. Considering I have made eggnog pound cake, egg custard pie and now these waffles...I am somewhat thankful that we will not see eggnog again for another year.
I did not plan for a large breakfast this morning because supposedly we are gathering early this year for Christmas dinner. Now of course we say that every year and if dinner is scheduled for one o'clock, we are typically eating by 3. But, of course, this would be the day that we eat on time, when we have a full belly from breakfast.
These waffles are nice and fluffy with a hint of holiday cheer--rum, nutmeg and cinnamon. Enjoy!
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp sugar
2-1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 cup eggnog
2 tbsp butter
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp rum
In a bowl, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, spices and salt. Make a well in the center, and pour in the eggnog, butter, egg and flavorings. Mix until dry ingredients are evenly moist.
Heat waffle iron. Oil or spray with cooking spray. Pour a scoop of batter on the waffle iron. Cook until indicator light goes off or until browned.
