Eggnog Waffles

December is the season of eggnog. I am NOT a fan of eggnog at all but I love the cinnamon and nutmeg flavor combination.  I think the combination of flavors works perfectly in these waffles. Not too much nutmeg but enough cinnamon to bring out the flavor of eggnog.


My daughter had a friend spend the night and the next morning they wanted waffles. Both of them ate two huge waffles each! That is huge for her friend who is a self admitted picky eater. Though she did admit she is trying to stretch the foods she will eat.

  • Servings: 6-8
  • Difficulty: easy

  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups half and half (fat-free works well)
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


  • maple syrup, butter, whipped topping, and sprinkles as desired


  1. Mix flour, salt, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Whisk in eggs, half and half, butter, and vanilla until well blended and fairly smooth.
  2. Cook in waffle maker according to waffle maker directions.
  3. Top with syrup, butter, or whipped topping as desired.

  3. What a fun idea! My husband loves egg nog but not waffles. Maybe I’ll try them as egg nog pancakes? And if that doesn’t work out well in terms of texture, then maybe I’ll compromise and make up a batch of waffles for just ME!😄

      The waffles may make a thick pancake. But, making them for you sounds good too!

        I totally understand them 😋


  5. Oh those sound yummy! I love eggnog! I limit it due to the calories, but that wasn’t a worry or concern I’d be drinking it all season long!

    Nutmeg is wonderful, but in pinches I think. I too keep the ratio to more cinnamon less nutmeg.

    I love the blue sprinkles! They’re perfect for the beginning of Hannukah!


  6. These look yummy and sound so good Marci! Love the flavors!
