Red Velvet Pancakes
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 8 medium pancakes
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 tablespoon red food coloring I use a concentrated gel coloring
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  1. In a medium bowl mix flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl mix milk, vinegar, eggs, vanilla, oil and red coloring.
  3. Whisk wet ingredients into dry ingredients until smooth. If the batter seems thin add a little more flour a tablespoon at a time, if it's thick add a little more milk, a tablespoon at a time. The thickness or thinness will depend on the type of food coloring you use and the type of milk. I used whole milk and the batter was thicker when I used skim milk it was slightly thinner. The batter can be easily adjusted.
  4. Heat skillet over medium to medium-low heat.
  5. Lightly oil skillet for the first pancake.
  6. Place batter in center of skillet (I used 6 tablespoons for each pancake, two scoops from a 3 tablespoon scoop)
  7. add a tablespoon of mini chocolate chips and cook pancake until edges are firm.
  8. Flip pancake and cook until batter is firm usually 30-45 seconds on the second side.
Depending on what type of food coloring you use will determine how much you'll need to add. I use Americolor, it's a concentrated color. I like the look of the vibrant red, feel free to use less if you prefer.
