Wild Rice Pancakes

A friend of ours said he had ordered wild rice pancakes in a restaurant and had really enjoyed them. He wondered if I could make them:) That intigued me so went in search of wild rice in my cupboard. All I had was a wild rice blend which worked just fine. These pancakes turned out nice and fluffy with a bit of a nutty texture and flavor. Delicious drizzled with pancake syrup and served with a side dish of strawberries.
