Red Velvet Pancakes

Red Velvet Pancakes

Red Velvet pancakes are so good and they make a perfect Valentine’s day breakfast. After having them at Cinnamon’s restaurant on the island of Oahu I had to figure out how to make them. I looked up a lot of recipes, but wanted to be able to use the cake mix. I could make them from scratch, but it’s more work. Here’s the recipe I’ve come up with after a few tries.



Red Velvet Pancakes
1 1/2 cups flour
2/3 cup red velvet cake mix
1 TBS sugar
3/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 – 2 1/4 cups of milk

Mix together flour, cake mix, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Add 1 1/2 cups of milk, eggs, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients. You want the batter to be thinner than regular cake batter, because these cook thick if not. If you think the batter is too thick add the rest of the milk up to another 3/4 cups.

Preheat electric grill to 325 degrees. Be sure to grease the grill. I use coconut oil. Pour about 1/4 cups of batter onto grill and let cook until the pancakes are bubbly on top. Flip and cook for 1-2 more minutes.

Vanilla Glaze (optional)

1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 TBS milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Mix all the ingredients and drizzle over pancakes.
Additional fun toppings:
whip cream

      It’s funny, because I was just going to use some icing I already had, but husband had thrown out. Otherwise I would have made the glaze.

    And, you buy one box of the cake mix and get to make the pancakes several different times! Great idea. The vanilla glaze sells it for me!
