Red Velvet Pancakes

…a new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
RED VELVET if you please!



Even Alannah Myles knew that this dark red batter is edible perfection! Well, almost 😉

Americans are used to Red Velvet in all kinds of shapes: Cupcakes, Cakes and – of course – Pancakes!

They appear bright red and have a chocolaty taste – and basically beg to be eaten by you! Served best with a fluffy cream cheese topping that just looks lovely on the red pancakes!



Red Velvet Pancakes

makes 18

  • 300g flour
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 480 ml milk
  • 2 tbsp white vinegar
  • 100g sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-3 teaspoons red food dye
  • 80g melted butter


Mix flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Use a second bowl to combine milk and vinegar and let it sit for 2 minutes. Add eggs, sugar, food dye and butter to milk mix. Gradually add dry ingredients and miy until just combined.

Preheat pan on low heat. Put little amounts of batter into the pan. Flip once bubbles appear on the surface. Cook from both sides but be careful not to cook them too long! When they turn too brown the red color won’t be bright anymore!


Cream cheese topping

  • 180g cream cheese (at room temperature)
  • 90g soft butter
  • 150g icing sugar
  • 100ml milk

Whip up cream cheese and butter. Add icing sugar and milk and mix until it’s smooth.

Top Pancakes with it and serve!


I just love them. Well, I guess I love everything cream cheese related but these turned out really nice!
