Both kids and grown-ups will enjoy the creamy filling and sweet syrup that flavor these French toast sandwiches from Monica Hannahan of Dayton, Ohio. "Vary the recipe by substituting fresh blueberries and strawberries and the corresponding jam," Monica recommends.
Meet the Cook: Not only are these an old family favorite, they're a neighborhood favorite as well. We have several bachelor neighbors who all rave about them.

A sunny sauce nicely complements the gingery flavor in these pancakes. "We often put a cube of cream cheese on top of the pancakes before pouring on the lemon sauce," notes field editor Jenece Howard of Elko, Nevada.
“My daughter-in-law, who is a great cook, shared the recipe for these tender, citrusy pancakes. She first tried them on a trip to Disney World and found the recipe in a cookbook there.” —Ginger Sullivan, Cutler Bay, Florida
For years, I made these pancakes plain. Then my husband and I started growing blueberries. What a delicious addition! I often fix a fluffy stack for my family. It's hard to fill up our grandkids, so I'm glad this recipe makes a big batch.
These individual treats are a delightful twist on French toast that make any morning special. “I made this recipe for my mom last Mother’s Day, and we both enjoyed it,” says Sandi Tuttle of Hayward, Wisconsin.
My mom and grandma have been making this fruity syrup to serve with fluffy waffles and pancakes ever since I was a little girl. Now I make it for my sons, who love it as much as me!—Sandra Harrington, Nipomo, California
