Red Velvet Pancakes
I’ve only ever made Red Velvet Pancakes one other time besides now, that was at least 4 years ago. ihop used to have a special Red Velvet Pancakes that one of our daughter’s used to enjoy whenever we went there for breakfast. But we haven’t seen it recently, and by recently I mean, at least since 2019. We did go to ihop in 2020 when things started opening back up again just to enjoy some family time and a special breakfast, but no Red Velvet Pancakes were to be found on the menu, either.
I have always wanted to try making these again for Valentine’s but haven’t gotten around to it (since I really don’t making them expect when for Valentine’s). So we got some cake mix and got to making pancakes. Our daughter tried it and enjoyed and adding some Cream Cheese Drizzle made theme even more tastier.
Red Velvet Pancakes
- 1 Box Red Velvet Cake Mix
- 1 & 3/4 Cups Milk
- 2 Eggs
- 2 TBSP Butter Melted
- 2 TBSP Oil
- 1 TBSP Flour
- Cream Cheese Drizzle (See Recipe Below)
- Red, Pink & White Sprinkles (optional)
Note: This mix makes a lot of pancakes so if you are serving 2 people, feel free to half the recipe (or cook all if you desire).
- Heat a pancake griddle or large skillet over low heat.
- Meanwhile, in a large enough bowl, whisk eggs in a large bowl.
- Stir in milk, butter, and oil. Stir in cake mix until combine.
- Stir in the flour (that will help the mixture to thicken up just a little).
- Spray griddle or skillet to coat. Cook pancakes the way you would normally.
- Use a 1/4 cup mix for small cakes and a 1/2 cup for larger cakes.
- Keep cooked pancakes warm with a clean towel while you finish the others.
- 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
- 2 TBSP Cream Cheese Softened
- 2 TBSP Milk
- Whip cream cheese with a mixer until fluffy.
- Add in powdered sugar and milk.
- Continue mixing until it comes together smoothly.
- If needed, add just a tad more milk until you get the right drizzle consistency.
Serve pancakes with a drizzle and top with sprinkles for a more festive Valentine’s look. If your family enjoys Red Velvet Cake they will most-likely enjoy this too for a once in a while breakfast “treat”.
