Ginger Oatcakes

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by MSZANZ

My step-mother gave me this recipe in 1991 from a Better Homes and Garden Lite Cooking insert. I asked her for the recipe and got a lot of help but then my step mother found the original recipe! I was so excited (almost as excited as when the Recipe Zaar community found a recipe just like it for me!) These are great pancakes!!

I made a half-recipe of these tonight for my granddaughter who loves pancakes and oatmeal! I followed the recipe almost exactly but had to do some subbing b/c DD didn't have everything on hand. I used quick rather than rolled oats and maple syrup for molasses. I cooked the first batch in butter but liked them best when cooked in the non-stick skillet w/o any butter or oil. DGD #1 loved them and I joined her and had pancakes for dinner too... as did DD and DSIL who had to try them also! I'll definitely be making these again; SOOOOOOOO much better than the boxed pancake mix! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!
