Red Velvet Pancakes Recipe

Who doesn't love red velvet cake? These pancakes are my excuse to have this delectable treat for breakfast! We make it a tradition at Christmastime to have a lazy pancake breakfast and read the enchanting fables in Letters from Father Christmas penned by J.R.R. Tolkien for his children. —Sue Brown, West Bend, Wisconsin

"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!"

MY REVIEW

"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."

MY REVIEW

"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!"

"This recipe just didn't work out for me. They didn't cook up well at all and I ended up pitching the entire batch. 2 tbsp of food coloring seemed a bit extreme and used much less."
