How to Make Red Velvet Pancakes

Seems like Red Velvet Pancakes are popping up everywhere on restaurant breakfast menus here in Los Angeles.  I am a fan of red velvet anything and discovered a yummy recipe from bakingbites to make a home.

Bring some color to a brunch celebration and serve up pretty and delicious red velvet pancakes.

Red Velvet Pancakes Recipe

1 cup all purpose flour
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 large egg
1 tbsp melted butter or vegetable oil
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 tsp red food coloring


Preheat a lightly greased or nonstick skillet on the stovetop.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt and sugar. Add in egg, melted butter, buttermilk, vanilla and food coloring and whisk well until batter is smooth and very few lumps remain.

Drop the batter onto the hot skillet with a spoon and cook until edges just start to set and bottom is lightly browned. Turn once, and cook again until bottom is lightly browned.

Serve immediately with syrup, berries and/or whipped cream.

This batter makes fairly thick pancakes. For thinner pancakes, add an additional 2 tbsp buttermilk to the batter.

    Whole wheat pancakes YUM. Did you know you can frezee bananas? I just leave them whole with peels on and put them in a frezeer bag. Now I buy bananas as often as I want to without worrying that I’m either going to have to use them up or throw them out!
