Red Velvet Pancakes

You. Must. Try. These. You will not regret a single bite! They are moist and delicious and the cream cheese icing is amazing! Perfect for Saturday morning Valentine's Day breakfast! Now I used two recipes from Pinterest that I found. One recipe I used the pancake batter only, and the other recipe I used the cream cheese icing recipe only. Feel free to check them both out though and see what you prefer to make. We even made the batter the night before and just kept it in the fridge overnight so we could start making pancakes right away. I also took a heart shaped metal cookie cutter and placed it on my skillet to make 'heart shaped' pancakes.

Happy (Almost) Valentine's Day Morning!

Pancake Batter

- 2 cups flour (plus 2 tbsp. at high altitude)
- 3 tbsp. cocoa powder
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda
- 2 cups milk
- 2 tbsp. white vinegar
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 tbsp. red food coloring
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 1/3 cup unsalted butter, melted

1. In a mixing bowl mix your flour, salt, cocoa powder, baking powder, and baking soda together.
2. Measure milk in a measuring cup and whisk in vinegar. Allow to rest for 2 minutes.
3. Pour milk into a separate mixing bowl and add eggs, sugar, food coloring, vanilla, and butter.
4. Slowly whisk together and add flour mixture to milk mixture.
5. Make pancakes on medium heat griddle with 1/4 cup mixture per pancake.

Cream Cheese Icing

- 4 oz. cream cheese
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 2-3 tbsp. milk
- splash of vanilla extract

1. In a stand mixer, whisk your cream cheese and butter together until smooth.
2. Add your powdered sugar until smooth.
3. Add milk and vanilla until you reach desired consistency. My icing was pretty thick, so add more milk if you prefer to drizzle your icing.
