do you have any special valentine’s day plans? making breakfast in bed for someone you love or hosting a saturday morning brunch? you can make these super simple and festive pancakes below. they take very few ingredients and are a sweet touch on a breakfast favorite.
Red Velvet Pancakes
• 1 cup pancake mix
• 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
• 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
• 1/2 cup buttermilk
• 1 egg, lightly beaten
• 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
• 3/4 teaspoon red food color
• 3 tablespoons softened butter
• 3 tablespoons raspberries
• 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
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!
