Continuing with my red velvet baking mania, I recently tried making red velvet pancakes.
I really love red velvet pancakes. Whenever I see it on a breakfast menu, I feel compelled to order it.
These came out light and fluffy. with just a slight trace of cocoa. I might increase the cocoa flavor a little bit next time, but these were still pretty good.
I attempted making a cream cheese icing swirl right into the pancake. It looked great until I flipped it over and then I couldn’t get the side with the icing to cook properly.
So I scrapped that idea and just made them plain and them topped them with a cream cheese glaze. And then I had to add some of my mini heart sprinkles because I bought a whole container and I don’t know what else to do with them.
Red Velvet Pancakes
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 6 tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 egg
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter melted
- 3 tbsp fat free milk
- 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (see note)
- 1/2 tsp vinegar
- 1 tsp red food coloring (see note)
Cream Cheese Glaze
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Whisk until only very small lumps remain.
- Heat skillet or griddle and add a little oil to grease the pan. Pour about 1/4 cup of batter onto pan, flipping pancake over when it begins to bubble. Cook another 30 seconds or so until done and then remove from stove. Repeat with remaining batter.
- To make the glaze, mix glaze ingredients in a mixing bowl or food processor until fluffy. Drizzle onto pancakes.
- If you want a more pronounced cocoa flavor, add another tablespoon of cocoa powder.
- If your batter doesn't look red you will need to add more coloring, but mine was pretty red with only 1 teaspoon.
