Red Velvet Pancakes
It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t feature a red velvet recipe this season. And with Lent celebrations kicking off, Pancakes had to feature on my blog today. So, I got to share with you how I make Red velvet pancakes.
Pancakes are basically associated with Shrove Tuesday, the day preceding Lent because they are a way to use up rich foods such as eggs, milk, and sugar, before the fasting season of the 40 days of Lent. A tad late but it is always a good time to eat pancakes. 🙂 It is also one of my favourite breakfast foods.
These red velvet pancakes are fluffy, delicious, beautiful and chocolatey. Enjoy this with a cream cheese glaze, fresh fruits and berries or just plain powdered sugar. They are great as is.
Here is how I make Red Velvet Pancakes:
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
3 tbsp cocoa powder
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups of milk
2 tbsp white vinegar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tbsp red food colouring
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup melted butter/oil
Fresh berries, for garnish (optional)
Cream Cheese Glaze
250g cream cheese, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1/3 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence or extract
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together all dry ingredients and set aside.
- Measure out milk into another large mixing bowl and whisk in vinegar, allow the mixture to rest for 2 minutes. You can substitute with buttermilk instead if you do not have vinegar.
- Add sugar, eggs, red food colouring, vanilla and melted butter to the milk mixture. Whisk the mixture until well combined.
- Add in the dry ingredients little at a time and mix just until combined.
- Heat a griddle and grease it lightly. Pour in about a 1/4 cup batter at a time onto hot griddle
- Cook until bubbles begin to appear on the top surface of the pancakes then flip and cook opposite side until pancake is cooked through. Takes about a minute or less.
- For the cream cheese glaze: In a mixing bowl, using an electric hand mixer set on medium speed, blend together cream cheese, sugar, milk and vanilla until well combine and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
- Serve the pancakes warm with cream cheese glaze and garnish with fresh berries if desired. Else you can enjoy these with powdered sugar too.
