Red Velvet Pancake Recipe For Valentines Day


I have never had anything red velvet ever! After seeing so much hype on the lovely cakes, cupcakes and pretty batters, I decided this is what hubby was getting to try this Valentines Day! To our surprise they were quite different than any other flavor we have tried in the past. Not exactly sure even how to describe the taste. Paired with cherries and cream cheese, these were a more than welcomed for our Valentines Day Brunch. Of course I wasn't going to stand there all day making heart shapes, 
so here's what the rest of them looked like.




Red Velvet Pancake Recipe

2 cups flour
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
Mix in a bowl all the above ingredients and set aside

In another bowl add:

1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1- 1/2 cups buttermilk or evaporated milk
2 eggs
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons red food coloring

Whisk these above ingredients together blending evenly.

Now pour the wet mixture into the dry and folding until moistened and still lumps remaining.

Heat your griddle on medium low heat. Spray with cooking oil. Also if using a heart shaped cookie cutter for the heart red velvet shaped pancakes, spray the interior of the cookie cutter.
