dish: eggnog crepes & sugarplum syrup


Luke loves eggnog and always brings home a little carton every holiday..he ends up only drinking a tiny bit. It's a little too rich for me on it's own so I wanted to make something that just has some of that delicious flavor, these crepes are perfect for Christmas morning!

eggnog crepes

makings:

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup eggnog
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons butter, melted

steps:

In a medium mixing bowl, stir above ingredients together until combined and smooth.

Heat a lightly oiled pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter into the pan, using about 1/4 cup for each crepe. Quickly tilt the pan in a circle so the batter coats the surface evenly.

Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown/slightly crispy. Shake it loose and flip it over in the air if you've got the wrist skills. If not, turn it over with a spatula and cook the other side.


 Pour a bit of the sugarplum syrup in the center and fold adding a line on top,sprinkle with powdered sugar. Yum!
