Say Good Morning to Red Velvet Pancakes!

Here is one last Valentine's Day post, although this certainly does not have to be eaten only on Valentines Day! These are wonderfully delicious any and every day of the year.
Red Velvet Pancakes
(adapted from about.com)
Pancakes
1 1/2 cups Flour
2 tablespoons Sugar
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1 tablespoon Cocoa Powder
1 teaspoon Salt
2 Eggs
1/4 cup Milk
1 cup Buttermilk
4 tablespoons Butter, melted and cooled slightly
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 teaspoon White Vinegar
2 teaspoon Red Liquid Food Coloring
Butter or non stick Cooking Spray

Cream Cheese Glaze
4 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup Confectioners Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 tablespoon Milk, if needed
Preheat a griddle to medium high heat. In a bowl whisk together
the flour, sugar, baking powder, cocoa powder, and salt.
Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, then add milk, buttermilk,
butter, vanilla extract, white vinegar, and food coloring,
whisking to combine completely.
Add the dry mix into the wet mix bowl. Stir just until
combined. Don't overmix.
Brush butter or pan spray on your griddle or frying pan.
Spoon batter onto pan. 
Cook until done.
Make the glaze by mixing the ingredients. Only add milk as 
needed. Just mix together with a fork. For best results,
make sure your cream cheese is really soft! That helps
it mix better.
Place pancakes on a plate and drizzle with glaze!

Happy Valentine's Day

Share the Day with Someone You Love!


Disappearing Valentine Danish!

These little danish are so cute! I filled Pillsbury Crescents with chocolate and cherries, and caramel bits, rolled 'em up, baked 'em up, and drizzled some glaze on them. I call them Disappearing Danish because they disappeared from the plate way too quickly!
Disappearing Valentine Danish
Cherry Filling
Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
Caramel Bits
Crescents
Glaze for Danish
1/4 cup Powdered Sugar
1-2 teaspoons Water
I made Cherry Danish,
Chocolate Caramel Danish,
and Chocolate Cherry Danish.
Roll up the crescent dough.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. These take longer then the
plain crescents because they are stuffed
with all the ingredients.
While they are cooking, make your glaze. Add water
until you get the correct consistency.
Drizzle with the glaze.
Happy Valentine's Day!
