Pick a Pancake!

Yum


We kind of missed National Pancake Day, but here are two pancake recipes for you to try anyway. The first is a new recipe for red velvet pancakes that I was inspired to try because of my love for red velvet cake. It is kind of a mix of recipes I have seen on the internet along with inspiration from my favorite go to recipe, Miss Mary Bobo's pancakes. I think they are the best pancakes ever and I know I can always count on them. The red velvet pancakes are really pretty and slightly chocolaty. Then, I am including the recipe for Miss Bobo's pancakes. I make them at least once a week, often enough that I no longer have to look at the recipe. It is easy and dependable, always fluffy and light.  Try one...or both!


Red Velvet Pancakes

Sift together into a medium bowl
1 1/2 c. self rising flour
1/4 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 T. sugar
1 t. baking soda
1/8 t. salt



In a separate bowl mix wet ingredients together:
1 c. buttermilk
1 t. vanilla
3 T. red food coloring
2 eggs, beaten

















Add wet ingredients to dry. Stir until just combined. Batter will be slightly lumpy. Add chocolate chips if desired.





























Using a 1/4 measuring cup scoop the batter onto a hot griddle. Cook until bubbles form on the surface of the pancakes and then flip them over.









I got these a little too close together on the griddle. You might want to space them out a little more! I just cut them a part with my spatula before flipping.

Some recipes serve red velvet pancakes with a cream cheese frosting, but I knew that would be too rich for our family for breakfast, so I dusted the pancakes with confectioners' sugar and served them with warm maple syrup.








Mix together:
1 1/4 c. buttermilk
1 egg
3 T. oil



In a separate bowl, sift together:
1 1/4 c. self rising flour
1 t. baking soda

Combine wet and dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Batter will be slightly lumpy. Add blueberries or chocolate chips if desired.
