Eggnog Waffles

2 1/4 cup flour
1 cup milk
1 cup eggnog
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons rum or 1 teaspoon rum flavoring
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
2 eggs

Whisk together the dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir to combine. Follow the instructions included with your waffle iron to complete the waffles. For most large, Belgian-style waffle irons you would use 1 cup of batter for each waffle. I love my waffle maker.

Yield: 4 large Belgian-style waffles

My thoughts:

Eggnog seems to be a fairly polarizing beverage, you either love it or hate it. I guess I am in the love it camp if by loving it you mean “drink maybe one glass once a year”. There is a local business that makes a nog that I enjoy (I have to draw the line at making it myself) that my mom would buy growing up. I bought some myself this year and while I enjoyed that cup, I was left with quite a bit leftover. Eggnog always strikes me as sort of breakfasty for some reason so I thought making something for breakfast might be fun. I am so happy I thought of making waffles, they were great! I used half milk and half eggnog and they had the perfect level of nogness. Rich but not sickeningly so and just really festive tasting.


  1. This was delicious! I made it this morning for my family! At first I was just making this for my younger brother and myself but then my parents had some too. My mom was overjoyed and told me it was the best Christmas present having me make breakfast for the family and all of us eating together (even though we all eat dinner together every night). It was cute. Thank you so much for the recipe and Merry Christmas!

  2. I love eggnog as long as it is served once a year ;). I think it is rich enough to last all season. Love this recipe, as will our kids.

  3. Best Wishes, Marie

    this is a very good idea !!!! for breakfast and as a christmas time dessert. thanks.

  4. I can't wait to try this! I make an amazing eggnog, and have used it for french toast, but never waffles…

  5. I made these at my sister's house for the whole family the day after Christmas & they came out Delicious!! What a perfect way to use up that leftover nog! (though I've really come to enjoy adding it to my coffee as well…) I don't have a waffle maker myself – do you think this would translate to pancakes?

  6. yumm-ooo! I am not an eggnog fan but i thought i would try this recipe. I used wheat flour and added just a bit more milk and used vanilla instead of the rum. This will be a new tradition for the holiday season!!
