Recipe Red Velvet Pancakes

Today we decided to make our Red Velvet Pancakes recipe  for our early Anniversary Breakfast. Our anniversary is on Valentine’s Day and since it’s such a busy day, we try to pack as much in as we can in case it ends up during the week. That way I am sure to get lots of attention. Hee Hee. It’s kind of like people that have birthday weeks or months. I have a long anniversary.

Serving size: 3 pancakes


The drizzle adds a little something to the pancakes and this way you really don’t need any syrup. You can even make the pancakes into hearts which is always fun.
