Have leftover rice from last night’s dinner? Turn it into a delicious plate of fluffy pancakes to enjoy for a scrumptious breakfast or brunch. Serve warm and top with all of your favorites like syrup, berries, chocolate or whipped cream!
Heat a griddle or large skillet over medium heat.
In a large bowl combine rice, milk, flour, sugar, applesauce, baking powder, and butter. Blend with an electric hand mixer for 2 minutes.
Coat griddle with vegetable oil. Pour about 1/4 cup batter onto the griddle and cook until the underside is golden brown. Flip and cook other side until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side.
Make this Gluten Free by substituting with rice flour.
Have prepackaged baking mix? Just follow package directions and stir in 1 cup cooked rice.
Stir in fun flavors like chocolate chips, fresh berries, and chopped nuts.
This recipe is already egg free but make it vegan by using plant-based milk such as coconut milk or almond milk and oil instead of butter.
