Red Velvet Cake is one of our favorite desserts, especially during the holidays, so we thought, why not turn this dessert into a festive breakfast item, too? With our recipe for Red Velvet Pancakes, you can celebrate all things red and decadent any time of the year!
What You’ll Need:
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups pancake mix
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons red food color
What To Do:
1. In a medium bowl, whisk cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, 2 tablespoons milk, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla until smooth; set aside.
2. In a large bowl, combine pancake mix, cocoa powder, and granulated sugar; mix well. Add remaining milk, the eggs, the remaining vanilla, and the food color; stir until thoroughly combined.
3. Coat a griddle or skillet with cooking spray, then heat over medium-low heat. When griddle is hot, pour 1/4 cup batter per pancake. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until bubbles form, then turn over and cook 1 to 2 additional minutes, or until golden brown. Repeat until all batter is used. Serve pancakes with cream cheese topping.
