I have a confession, I am more of a waffle girl. Even at that, my version of waffles is sometimes Eggos (shh, don’t tell) and at most I whip up some Bisquick slap it on our vintage waffle iron and call it a day. So don’t be shocked when I tell you that these pancakes – to keep it in line with my pancake truth – starts with pancake mix. But I LOVE the idea of stepping up the pancake game like I did we these Easy Red Velvet Pancakes! PLUS they’re perfect for Valentine’s Day coming up! Bonus!

For these Easy Red Velvet Pancakes I started with the mix, added in some cocoa, sugar, eggs and buttermilk and whisked it all together. Just a few minutes on the griddle and you’re good to go!

  6. Turn and cook the other side until pancake is done.

Now a lot of folks like to serve cream cheese topping with their red velvet pancakes, but we opted for a good quality syrup like you can find over at my friend Laura’s shop Finding Home Farms! The boys call this “mama’s syrup” because basically I’m the only one who’s allowed to use it. 😉
