It’s not often that I cheat on this blog. But today, I’m totally cheating.
Instead of coming up with my own recipe, I’m going to give you a direct link to someone who made this wonderful recipe with supreme ingredients!
Want to know something? I don’t come up with recipes because it’s a favorite hobby of mine. Mainly, I just can’t find the right recipe with the quality ingredients I desire, so I modify and adjust recipes to fit my standard. But today, folks, this blog has it going on. No adjustment necessary.
Saves a girl on some time for more activities!
Okay, who am I kidding? More like, laundry.
Then activities? Haha, no, probably a nap.
But a nap, baby!
So, here it is – quality ingredients and all.
Though this dessert beverage has quality ingredients, we are yet to commit the time to making dessert on a regular basis. Typically we settle for buttery popcorn. Which, I realized just now, I don’t have up on the blog.
Y’all haven’t lived unless you’ve had real buttery popcorn, slathered, I mean slathered, with butter and salt. Someday. Frist, laundry.
But eggnog, it’s just as thrilling and nearly as easy to make.
With the holidays, we’ve made this recipe probably four times. And each time we make it, it doesn’t last the night.
You better make two batches, now. So, go. Enjoy a rich cup of eggnog thanks to The Prairie Homestead.
2 cups milk (raw is best, if you can find it!)
2 cups cream (preferably raw)
6 egg yolks (from a reputable source)
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
Pinch of sea salt
2 tablespoons egg white
Combine milk, 1.5 cups of cream, and all other ingredients (minus the egg whites) in a blend and combine thoroughly.
With a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat the remaining 1/2 cup of cream and 2 tablespoons of egg whites until stiff peaks have formed.
Fold the whipped cream mixture into the egg/milk mixture. Chill and enjoy!
