Pancake Tuesday Griddle Cakes with Nutmeg Sauce


Griddle cakes have been a family favorite...well a parent favorite since 1995 when my long lost friend Karen Newell shared the recipe with me. One of my biggest regrets in life is not keeping in better contact with my friends.  This recipe uses left over rice and is so wonderful, flavorful, and unique.

I just love kitchen helpers. Girls cooking next to me makes my day.

Set up and ready to go. I have sense moved the griddle to the table. We can make fresh pancakes right at the table and no one is left standing and serving everyone else.

Griddle Cakes with a Nutmeg Sauce

1 egg, separated
