Red Velvet Pancakes

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 tbsp Vinegar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 3/4 tsp Red Gel Food Coloring

Cream Cheese Topping

  • 4 ounces Cream Cheese softened
  • 3 tbsp Confectioner's Sugar
  • 2 tbsp Whipping Cream
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Milk
  • 1 tbsp Maple Syrup


  • In a medium-sized bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Add cocoa and mix.
  • Add sugar, milk, vinegar, eggs, and oil and whisk until batter is completely smooth. Add gel food coloring and whisk until the batter is completely colored. Add more red if necessary.
  • Heat a buttered non-stick pan over medium heat. Pour about 1/3 cup’s worth of batter into the center of the pan and cook for about 2 minutes on each side.
  • Stack pancakes on a plate and set aside so that you can prepare the delicious maple cream cheese topping! 
  • For the topping, use a stand mixer or electric mixer to beat cream cheese, sugar, whipping cream, milk, and 1 tbsp of maple syrup. Once the ingredients are completely mixed with one another, pour generously over your stack of pancakes. If desired, pour more maple syrup on top.
