Reviews for Red Velvet Pancakes
"instead of food colouring, use strawberries, cherries or other red fruit. Mix it into the batter in a blender and voila .....you have natural colour!"
"I read the other reviews and decided make a few changes. I got by with using 2 teaspoons of red paste food coloring, which is of course stronger than liquid color. I reduced the cocoa by half and used only about 9 cups of flour. With those changes they were what I was looking for. I also made a thin glaze with cream cheese, powdered sugar, milk, & vanilla & served with sliced strawberries."
"The portions are horrible. They turned out more chocolate then anything, but were too thick to make pancakes with."
"These were delicious; the buttermilk makes all the difference. The batter was a bit thick when made to directions so I added 1/2 cup more buttermilk for pancakes. It made great waffles when mixed to directions. I also omitted the food coloring. But these would be fun with green dye for St Patrick's Day!"
