Red Velvet Pancakes
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.
- 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.
