Brown Rice Pancakes

Brown Rice Pancakes


If you had some left-over brown rice, so you can be made these brown rice pancakes from The Breakfast Book by Marion Cunningham. I was a little dubious about the recipe – it contains very little flour-but as it turns out, these are delicious, light and delicate. They are tender, but they don’t fall apart in the pan. Pancakes taste a lot like the rice pudding of my childhood. The only revision I made to the recipe was to add a pinch of cinnamon to add to the rice pudding nostalgia. This is a great use for cooked rice, and the whole family loved them.
