Red Velvet Pancakes

I think Red Velvet Pancakes can be a very romantic breakfast. Drizzle some cream cheese glaze on top and add a few strawberries and you have a beautiful romantic treat. Inspired by the classic red velvet cupcakes made into a light fluffy pancake.

  1. Happy Anniversary! These look really good. I'm not a fan of red velvet, but I do love me some pancakes! My son and nephew would be sure to make and enjoy these, though.
