Gingerbread Pancakes with Lemon Syrup

My daughter's family enjoyed gingerbread pancakes at a restaurant and decided to serve them at home. The lemon syrup is a nice change from maple syrup. —Noreen Larson, Wainwright, Alberta

    I made these pancakes for dinner tonight and they were delicious! I used half all-purpose flour and half whole wheat. I added a couple shakes of ground cloves, a dash of nutmeg and about a tsp of vanilla as well. I did not make the syrup. The only thing I will do differently next time is to double the recipe!
