Cooked rice is the secret ingredient in these festive praline pancakes with a delicious homemade caramel syrup.
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup hot water
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

- For Caramel Syrup: Heat sugar in medium skillet over medium heat until it begins to melt and turn golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, until sugar caramelizes. Carefully stir in water; stir to dissolve lumps. Remove from heat and add vanilla. Set aside.

- Pour 2 tablespoons batter for each pancake into greased griddle or skillet. Cook until top is bubbly and underside is lightly browned, about 1 minute. Turn pancakes and lightly brown other side.
