Today is the Sunday Supper edition. Today’s post we are supposed to bring something to the Sunday table that has to do with Valentine’s Day. I thought chocolate mousse, chocolate pudding, cupcakes, but I settled on Red Velvet Pancakes. You know how much I love pancakes, and who doesn’t love a soft, fluffy, silky red velvet pancakes with cream cheese frosting?
These pancakes are pretty healthy for you too! They are made with whole wheat flour and greek yogurt! I love my greek yogurt pancakes. I will admit I did have a few issues making these. The problem was the color. I actually made these last week and as much red dye drops I put in, I couldn’t come up with the right color. The more white flour I mixed in the darker the chocolate got. Crazy! My Husband said they tasted good, but don’t look like red velvet. Here’s what they looked like last week!
See no red! So this week, I bought red dye paste and presto, red velvet pancakes were born. Since I was bringing this to the Sunday Supper table to serve, I had to make more than 6 pancakes so I upped the recipe and got 16 beautiful pancakes.
I also decided since it is for Valentine’s Day that heart shape pancakes would be perfect! I took the not so pretty pancakes, and cut out heart shapes with my cookie cutter. So cute! They are sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face that you serve them too!
I really feel for the topping that maple syrup is not needed, but for red velvet you need a creamy cream cheese frosting. You can make the frosting as thick or as thin as you like, by adding more milk for thinner frosting or more powdered sugar for thicker frosting. I made mine in the middle. I couldn’t stop dipping the pancakes in the frosting, so good!
I have to admit to you, this is the first time I ever made anything red velvet and I love it! I never even ate red velvet anything. I did try a piece of cake once, and my friends said the cake was not good, so don’t count it towards the red velvet experience. I am looking forward to experimenting with the whole red velvet phase.

- Place a little less than ¼ cup batter on to a medium hot skillet or griddle, cook until bubbles appear and flip pancake, approx 2 minutes per side.
- To keep pancakes warm, heat oven to 200F and place cooked pancakes onto a baking sheet and place in the oven until ready to eat.

I’m pretty happy with these pancakes! I will definitely make them again! I honestly can’t get over how smooth they are and my family just loved them!!
