Red Velvet Pancakes: Mix pancake mix, cocoa powder and granulated sugar in large bowl until well blended. Stir in buttermilk, egg, vanilla and food color just until blended. Heat your pan, coat with butter and add 1/4 cup of your mixture. If you’re extra ambitious you can even pour the pancakes into a heart shape cookie cutter. (Note: cooking on low heat will ensure more of a desired red color). Cook 1 to 2 minutes per side, turning when pancakes begin to bubble.

Raspberry Butter topping: Add softened butter and powdered sugar to a stand mixer and mix on high with whisk attachment.  Add the fresh raspberries to the bowl. Mix on medium speed with whisk attachment for 5-10 seconds until the berries break apart. Chill mixture for at least 2 hour until firm.
 
Top pancakes with a layer of raspberries, raspberry butter and garnish with powder sugar. Serve to someone you love!

    These look absolutely stunning! I’m a sucker for both red velvet and raspberries but somehow I never thought of putting them together. The only problem is I don’t have a mixer! Hmm. Wonder how I can improvise…

    And, as you again probably know, Arsene Wenger has again refused, partially,
    to heed my advice, advances, pleas, begs, howlers, screams, errr.
    Don’t worry though, with some practice and the right
    guidance you can improve your skills. In addition to these
    benefits, soccer is a great training ground for
    general life skills, like teamwork.

    These pancakes look delicious! I really, really want to try these!
