The Freshman Cook: 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


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!
