Updated Sep 16, 2008

Ingredients

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

Steps

  • 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.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Spraying cooking spray onto a hot surface or near a heat source is not recommended because of the potential for fires.
  • tip 2
    Short on time? Use store-bought lemon curd instead of the lemon sauce.
  • tip 3
    Cube cream cheese when it’s still chilled; softened cream cheese won’t cut as cleanly.
