Preparation of St. Joseph's pancakes

  1. Start by cooking the rice in water and milk , adding the scored vanilla pod. It is important to adjust the quantity of water, which must be added as the rice absorbs it, otherwise the result will be too soupy.
  2. Cook for 20 minutes , then remove the vanilla pod and leave to cool. Then transfer the rice into a bowl, incorporating the beaten eggs and the rest of the ingredients except the icing sugar.
  3. Let the mixture obtained rest for an hour.
  4. Place a large pan on the heat and heat the oil. When it has reached the right temperature, start frying : the measure to obtain pancakes of the right size is a spoonful of dough.
  5. When they are golden brown, drain the pancakes, leave them to rest on a tray lined with absorbent paper and leave to cool before sprinkling with icing sugar.
