For the first time, I feel so difficult to describe food into words. I do not have a word for that smell rose from the pan where my red velvet cake puffed up. A fork passed through that moist and buttery soft, red sponge with no resistance. And those luxury sweet, airy crumbs of this pancake melted inside my mouth.
Heaven! This gorgeous pancake is also as easy to make as any other types of pancake. I whipped up all ingredients in a minute. It doesn’t need to be perfect. A few lumps in the batter allowed the pancake to be powdery soft.
Now, these red pillows of softness are ready to savor. Sweet yet creamy, mellow and moist, rich and delightful.
Red Velvet Pancake
Ingredients: (4 servings)
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp caster sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp melted butter
1 large egg
3/4 cup buttermilk
3 tbsp cream cheese
2 tsp red food coloring (Depend on the brand and how red you want your pancake to be)
Chocolate sauce and powdered sugar for garnishing
- Combine caster sugar, salt, butter, egg, vanilla extract, cream cheese, food coloring and buttermilk in a large bowl and whisk until smooth.
- Combine all purpose flour, cocoa powder and baking power in another bowl, stir well and sift the flour mixture into the wet ingredients.
- Stir until combine. Do not over mix the batter. There should be a few lumps in it. Let the batter sit for 10 minutes.
- Grease the pan with some cooking spray or butter and heat it over the medium heat.
- When the pan is hot, add about ¼ cup of batter at once. When you notice the smoke and bubbles rise on the top of the batter, flip it and cook further for a minute or so. Cook the rest of the batter until you have all the pancakes you need.
- Serve hot with chocolate sauce and powdered sugar.
We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not make the most indulging thing in the morning. This red velvet pancake is great with chocolate sauce. A lot of people preferred red velvet cake with cream cheese glaze, and you should try that, too.
