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.

"These pancakes were so delicious! I was worried about how my children would like the ginger taste, but they really enjoyed them. They were also very easy to make with ingredients that I tend to have on hand already. The lemon syrup complimented the pancakes nicely. Awesome recipe!"
