Ginger Oatcakes

"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 these years ago often, then I lost the recipe. Finally found it online and we started the New Year right by having these this morning! They are wonderful.

    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!

    Made these for breakfast this a.m. For the flour I used whole wheat pastry flour which increased the fiber content. Also, rounded the cinnamon up to 1 teaspoon and used the full 1/2 teaspoon of ginger. For the molasses I used sorghum which has a milder taste. These pancakes have a nice blending of spice that would be good with the addition of raisins, which I plan to try in the future. Glad you were able to find the recipe and post it.
