OMG! I've searched off and on for this recipe for 20 years, even calling Bisquick consumer line. I was even desperate enough to ask my ex-wife for the recipe, she being somewhat of a packrat with a huge recipe file, to no avail. A very similar recipe used to be on the back of Bisquick boxes. This was a special Sunday breakfast for my kids that I used to cook 35 years ago and I can clearly see that yellow piece of cardboard in the recipe box.<br/><br/>The difference between this recipe and the old Bisquick recipe is using the juice of one lemon instead of the 3 tablespoons of juice and more importantly, using the zest of that lemon in the sauce along with a little cornstarch to kick up the sauce and thicken it. This balanced the sweetness, sort of a lemony sweet and sour sauce on the ginger pancakes was unusual and outstanding.<br/><br/>Can wait to make this for my kids again. We often talk about it... Thank you!!!
