Lemon Sauce
1
cup sugar
1/2
cup butter or margarine
1/4
cup water
1
egg, well beaten
1
tablespoon grated lemon peel
3
tablespoons lemon juice
Pancakes
2
cups Original Bisquick® mix
1 1/3
cups milk
1/4
cup light molasses
1 1/2
teaspoons ground ginger
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2
teaspoon ground cloves
1
egg
1
package (3 oz) cream cheese, cut into 8 cubes
  1. In 2-quart saucepan, heat all sauce ingredients to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Keep warm over low heat.
  2. Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat or electric griddle to 350°F; grease with cooking spray, vegetable oil or shortening. (Surface is ready when a few drops of water sprinkled on it dance and disappear.)
  3. In medium bowl, beat Bisquick mix, milk, molasses, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and 1 egg with wire whisk or hand beater until well blended. For each pancake, pour slightly less than 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle.
  4. Cook until bubbles break on surface. Turn; cook other sides 1 minute. Top each serving of pancakes with cube of cream cheese and sauce.

Did You Know?
Spraying cooking spray onto a hot surface or near a heat source is not recommended because of the potential for fires.
Simplify
Short on time? Use store-bought lemon curd instead of the lemon sauce.
Success
Cube cream cheese when it’s still chilled; softened cream cheese won’t cut as cleanly.
