      Lovely pancakes...I used ground ginger for the sauce but it made it quite bitter, so I added golden syrup to it and that solved the problem. Next time I'll have to get my hands on some crystallized stuff!

      Really good! I substituted 1 tablespoon of ground up flax seeds and 1 tablespoon water for the egg and margarine for the butter. I also increased the baking powder to 2 teaspoons. Nice change from regular pancakes!

      Loved these hanna! Very easy and yummy. Even though I forgot the egg, they still turned out great. Also used canned pears, fresh ginger and added a little extra sugar (because I ran out of the other). But I am sure they would be good with powdered ginger as well.
