I feel like I haven’t made breakfast food in a while. Maybe because I never really have time to make a gourmet breakfast, aside for my Spicy Eggwhite and Cheese Sandwich– that happens to be great for commuting! This past Sunday, I had a little extra time on my hands and decided to indulge a bit. I’ve seen yummy Red Velvet creations circulating the internet, and I know how unhealthy it can be. I decided to make Red Velvet Pancakes, because you can play with the recipe and make it healthy. I also wanted to make a reasonable amount of batter – something that can serve 3-4 people (not serving size 24 pancakes).
The recipe is also super easy is, and most of these ingredients are probably in your fridge and pantry already. So, if you want to spend a relaxing morning in at home on the weekend, or if you have some extra time in the morning on a weekday, these pancakes are great for you! You’re also not going to feel guilty about eating these yummies!
Vintage Instagram look of course!
