Holiday Eggnog Crepes with Maple Rum Syrup

20131219-192318.jpg

One Sunday a month my family of famished fish get to wake up to the smell of fresh buttery crepes on the stove. And this Sunday was no different-other than making these just before 11 dozen tamales. (Boy was I crazy!)

But I did change one thing with my usual crepes-I added some holiday spirit. Some eggnog to be exact. Oh boy were these some of the softest and fluffiest crepes. All that whipped egg and sweet nutmeg was just the thing we needed to get in some holiday spirit. And of course we drizzled these with spiced rum infused maple syrup.

I made these crepes with the same technique as my Original Crepes, with just these simple recipe add-ins.

Holiday Eggnog Crepes

Ingredients:
1 3/4 cups flour
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups eggnog
1/3 cup plus 1Tb milk
2 Tb sugar
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Dash salt
2 Tb melted butter
1/2 tsp almond extract
powdered sugar for dusting
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 Tb spiced rum
8 Tb whipped cream

First combine the eggs, eggnog, milk, sugar and spice and almond extract in a large mixing bowl. Whisk well.

Slowly whisk in the flour and melted butter.

Ladle onto an 8-inch non-skillet sprayed with cooking spray that has been preheated over medium heat.

Twirl the pan to coat with the crepe batter and let cook about 30-45 seconds.

Flip with a rubber spatula.

Cook the other side about 15-30 seconds, until cooked through. Do not over brown.
