I’ve always loved Red Velvet. It’s my favorite cake, ice cream…everything about it I love. It would be a dirty lie if I were to tell you I only have Red Velvet pancakes during Valentine’s day time so I won’t. That being said, I think they are extra special to have around this time so I saved reposting for the tenth time this recipe until around now. I’ve actually done a bit of reworking with it to make it easier (there were far too many ingredients that I wasn’t trying to buy).
½ cup flour
¼ dark cocoa powder (I am looking at you gharidelli cocoa powder heaven)
½ cup sweetener
1 tsp baking powder
1 tablespoon red food coloring
½-1 cup milk or water depending on your preference and pancake consistancy liking.
For the topping:
I’ve also topped with vanilla yogurt which is pretty good (not cream cheese good but pretty good).
What I’ve found to the most delicious for your taste buds in the following “glaze” type ordeal.
½ cup cream cheese
½ cup sweetener…I used stevia for this…
2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons syrup
The pancakes are easy. Mix the dry to the wet ingredients adding as much (or little) liquid as you like. I tend to like thicker pancakes so I add less liquid.
The glaze is also easy…mix it all together. I’ve found melting the cream cheese (in the microwave) can get it mix easier but it’s your choice.
I’ve made many friends with this recipe and I hope you do too. Or boyfriends/girlfriends since that is what Valentine’s Day is all about…making your lover pancakes.
Question for you: Do you do anything special for Valentine’s day?
