Red Velvet Pancake Ingredients

Cooking spray

3 cups plus 2 tablespoons cake flour

3 tablespoons baking powder

2 tablespoons sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder

1 1/2 cups milk

1 cup buttermilk

2 large eggs

3 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 teaspoons white vinegar

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted

2 to 4 teaspoons red food coloring (depending on how red you’d like the pancakes)

Maple Buttermilk Icing Ingredients

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Dash of salt

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted

1/4 cup buttermilk

1/4 cup whole milk

2 tablespoons maple syrup


1. Heat a skillet or griddle over medium-low heat. Spray the skillet with cooking spray.

2. Add the flour to a large bowl…

3. Along with the baking powder, sugar, and salt.

4. Add the cocoa powder…

5. And whisk to combine.

6. In a separate bowl, mix together the milk, buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, and vinegar…

7. And pour the mixture into the dry ingredients.

8. Whisk gently until the batter just comes together…

9. Then whisk in the melted butter until it’s all combined.

10. Next, add 2 teaspoons of the food coloring…

11. And whisk it into the batter.

12. Check the color. If you’d like it to be a deeper red, add a little more food coloring.

13. Use a spoon or scoop to retrieve 1/4-cup helpings of the batter…

14. And drop them on the skillet.

15. Cook the pancakes very slowly until they’re done, about 2 minutes per side. Watch to make sure they don’t brown! You want them pure and pinkish red.

16. Meanwhile, make the icing! Combine the powdered sugar, salt, and melted butter in a medium bowl.

17. Add the buttermilk, milk…

18. And maple syrup.

19. Whisk the mixture until it’s nice and smooth.
