What They Are

My youngest sister has a love affair with red velvet cake, but with her 6 baby girls running around the house she never really has the time to make it. So I came up with this recipe for her. Now she can get her red velvet fix anytime she wants. These pancakes are best severed with the cream cheese topping but if it is to rich for you, you can top with powder sugar or anything you like. You can mix all the dry together and store in a air tight container busy morning add the wet to the mix, to save time.

My kids get a kick out seeing these red pancakes on there plate, for the holidays I like to make them into hearts, trees or egg shapes, and add candy or fruit on top of the cream cheese topping or let the kids top there own. It’s a fun away to spend breakfast together on the weekends.
