  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.

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 hear...
