Wild rice gives these fluffy pancakes a wonderful texture and hint of nutty flavor. Feel free to use more or less wild rice, depending on your preference.

  • Heat a lightly oiled griddle or skillet over medium-high heat.

  • For each pancake, pour 1/4 cup batter on griddle and cook until browned, about 1 1/2 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, about 1 minute. Continue with remaining batter.

Editor's Note:

Half a cup of raw wild rice yields a little more than 1 1/2 cups cooked. To cook wild rice: Combine 1/2 cup wild rice and 2 cups cold water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender but not mushy, about 45 minutes depending on the variety of wild rice. Drain off any excess liquid, and spread out wild rice to cool in a shallow baking dish before proceeding with the recipe.

I have gluten issues and altered this recipe for GF buckwheat pancakes - adding the wild rice to them gave them a whole new and pleasant flavor - thanks for the idea

These were good but nothing to write home about. I have had more flavorful pancakes although the nutmeg was nice. I followed the recipe exactly. Just a plain kind of pancake we had them for supper but I love that they have the nutrition from this native grass of our state-WI. Also the rice called for is not cooked as mentioned in the previous review. The ratio for wild rice is usually 4 to one depending on how much of the hull is removed during processing. So start with 1 1/4 cups of raw wild rice.

The nutmeg really makes these good! I made these with whole wheat flour and soy milk for my family's tastes. This is a recipe I'll be using again!

Very good and different.It is 1-1/4 cooked rice. You can't tell the rice is in it if cooked all the way.I used all wheat flour. 3 out of 4 liked it a lot. The other 1 wanted banana pancakes so I made a couple- After placing pancakes on griddle add sliced bananas on top so they cook with 2nd side and brown. If you've never had banana pancakes the bananas taste very different when cooked-way better!

These were just okay. Not good or bad. The rice just gave the pancakes a bit of an odd texture. The flavor was good though.

Good with applesauce. Great with maple syrup. The batter was awfully thin and made dense pancakes. My second try was with with half the water more eggs and double the wild rice. It makes a hearty nutty pancake.

I doubled the vanilla and didn't have enough nutmeg so I added some cardamon and they were very good. For half the batch I also added some chopped fresh cranberries which my husband and I enjoyed but the kids not so much.
