Red Velvet Pancakes

It's tuesday... It's a bad tuesday too. It's the tuesday 2 weeks into the New Year and everybody has realised that it's going to be a long time till the next little holiday break. I actually believe Tuesdays' are worse than Mondays'. Monday is always busy, you get to see people and talk about your weekend and it seems to go pretty quickly. Where as Tuesday always feels like you've got forever till the weekend.

So, here is a dreamy recipe of perfection, whip it up, leave it in the fridge and you can get a good batch of pancakes to keep you going till Friday.


This will make you around 15 pancakes, the recipe can be halved but I can assure you the mixture won't go to waste! 

2 cups of flour,
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1 tbsp of icing sugar
A pinch of baking soda and salt
2 large eggs
1 tbsp of red food colouring
Butter for frying
1 1/2 cups of buttermilk

For the cream cheese icing:
Depending on your choice for every heaped tablespoon of cream cheese, one flat tablespoon of icing sugar. I added crushed meringue to mine too.

If you can't get your hands on any buttermilk you can make your own! Pour two tablespoons of lemon juice into 1 1/2 cups of semi-skimmed milk and leave it for 5-10 minutes to curdle, give it a little stir and you have home-made buttermilk! The instructions are dead easy, sift the top five ingredients into a bowl, whisk in your eggs, colouring and butter milk until there are no more lumps. Lastly, fry your pancakes in a little bit of butter...


One month till Valentines day, get practicing, and if Valentines day is just another day of the year for you, these will change that, who needs men when you have food!
