Red Velvet Pancakes with Cream Cheese Glaze
Reviews:
September 16, 2012

First off I have tried this recipe twice. Once exactly as the recipe states and the second time with a little *doctoring*. Following the recipe as described the pancakes came out bland and didn't seem to have any flavor other than a tangy twist. No cocoa flavor despite the addition of cocoa! My suggestions: 1) Add one more tablespoon of cocoa powder and sugar to the listed recipe. Don't skimp because it really takes the flavor up a notch which to my palate was perfect!! 2) Cook the pancakes on a lower heat setting then regularly. I found these pancakes like to burn a little faster than others. They do better at a lower heat. 3) Butter and spray oil for the pan/griddle is essential. A little melted butter followed up by a spray of oil and you will have a hint of buttery flavor and a slight browning to the red batter. 4) Let your batter remain a little on the lumpy side. It does seem to produce better pancakes. Let the bubbles form completely and the edges dry out a tad before flipping. The cream cheese drizzle works a little better with a touch of milk and a few seconds in the microwave. Enjoy!!
