  1. Bring the wild rice and 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, 20 to 45 minutes depending on the variety of wild rice. Drain off any excess liquid, fluff the rice with a fork, and cook uncovered 5 minutes more.
  2. Whisk eggs, buttermilk, and vanilla in a large bowl. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg, and salt in a separate large bowl. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture, beating well to make a smooth batter. Stir in butter and cooked wild rice.
  3. 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.

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



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!



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.
