Rice Pancakes

Now this takes me back. This is something my mom would make whenever she had leftover rice from dinner. It's sweet, simple and soothing. Comfort food at it's best.

But you know what the problem is trying to get a recipe from your mom for a dish she's been making for 40 years? There is no exact recipe! She's all "start with some leftover rice" and "just add a little flour" and "you'll need a lot of sugar" and I'm all "I need measurements!"

So after a few experiments I think I've figured it out.

Rice Pancakes

3 cups cooked rice
1 egg
2 TBS flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 TBS butter

Mix together rice, egg, flour and sugar. Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat. Spoon rice mixture into hot skillet and brown each side for 3-4 minutes.

  1. I've never heard of rice pancakes, do you eat them plain or with something on them? Sounds yummy!

  2. I've never heard of them either, but I have eaten hot rice with milk and sugar.
    I have the same recipe problem with my mom.........she just knows what she does, no recipe.

  3. I eat them plain--they're so good with just the right amount of sweetness and crispy on the outside. Yum!

  4. Wow, this sounds realllly good!

  5. This always seemed like a treat!

  6. I assume that's 1/2 cup of sugar?
    I'm excited to try these, too! Thanks Ali!

  7. Oops! Thanks Merrie! It should read 1/2 cup sugar (going back to edit it now:))
