Red Velvet Pancakes

Last week, I’ve been given one of the best surprises. Here I was in my backyard, in the early evening, helping my son learn how to roller skate, when I saw 2 figures approcahing. I hadn’t even heard the gate open! Turns out it was my sister and niece(Yasmine), coming from Beirut to spend the weekend with us! Can’t tell you what I felt at that moment.

The next morning, Yasmine asked me for red velvet pancakes. (there’s little I can refuse this girl, she owns my heart). So I looked up a recipe that turned out to be amazing- taste and consistency wise. I hope you enjoy it!

What you need:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 Tbsp white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp red food coloring
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup salted butter , melted

Preheat an electric non-stick griddle. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt, set aside. Measure out milk into a liquid measuring cup and whisk in vinegar, allow mixture to rest for 2 minutes. Pour milk mixture into a separate large mixing bowl and add in sugar, eggs, red food coloring, vanilla and melted butter. Whisk mixture until well combine. While whisking, slowly add in dry ingredients and mix just until combine. Butter griddle if necessary and pour about a 1/4 – 1/3 cup batter (depending on how large you want your pancakes) at a time onto hot griddle. Cook until bubbles begin to appear on the top surface of the pancakes then flip and cook opposite side until pancake is cooked.
