24th december - eggnog day
Eggnog Day coincidently falls on the same day as Christmas Eve... and what day is better for indulging in this delicious festive drink?! But you know us by now... we don't like to do things the conventional way.
This year why not kick off your Christmas Eve morning with these deliciously fluffy eggnog waffles. They come out golden and crisp on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. Paired with some homemade cinnamon whipped cream this is the festive breakfast of dreams!
Just in case you don't already know how to make eggnog, we've included a recipe for that too ;-)
