Red Velvet Pancakes

So on Thursday, my mom, Patrick, Hunter and I ventured out to the restaurant Snooze in downtown Fort Collins. Let me just tell you I LOVED IT! There were too many good options to pick and my mom and I couldn't so we got two entrees and split them. We got a breakfast burrito and...
RED VELVET PANCAKES!
Let me tell you. These are amazing.
Red velvet pancakes + cream cheese frosting + praline sauce + pecans = my favorite.

From this experience, I am definitely already a big fan of Snooze and have decided to go back soon! It is only open until 2:30 though so breakfast or lunch is what you get! Not only do they have red velvet pancakes but they also had pineapple pancakes, key lime pancakes, sweet potato pancakes, and more. They also had stuffed french toast with bacon, nutella, and peanut butter cream cheese frosting...I think my husband wants to try that one!
Here is a recipe I found online for Red Velvet Pancakes since I couldn't get the recipe from the restaurant! Source HERE.  

Special Cooking Equipment Needed: Electric Griddle or stovetop griddle
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Yield: 4 servings (3 pancakes each)
Ingredients:
  • For Pancakes:
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 8 ounces buttermilk
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons red liquid food coloring
  • Extra butter or nonstick cooking spray
  • For Cream Cheese Glaze:
  • 4 ounces low-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon milk, if needed

Preparation:

  1. Preheat a griddle to medium-high heat. In a bowl, use a whisk to combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt. Set aside.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, then add the milk, buttermilk, butter, vanilla extract, white vinegar and food coloring, whisking to combine completely. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, stirring just until combined. Do not overmix.
  3. Brush a little butter or spray nonstick cooking spray on the hot griddle, and spoon batter into the desired sized pancakes. Cook until bubbles form in the batter, the edges are dry and the underside is lightly brown, about 5 minutes, then flip over and cook the other side 1 to 2 minutes more. Repeat as needed until all of the batter is used.
  4. As pancakes cook, make the cream cheese glaze: In a small bowl, use a fork to stir together the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Add a little milk if needed to make a glaze that has a thin enough consistency to drizzle.
  5. To serve, stack three pancakes on a plate and drizzle cream cheese glaze over them.
I have not tried this recipe so don't hate on me if you mess it up :)
But let me know if you try it and your thoughts!
Have a great Sunday!

    4. Wow these look delicious. I've never really tried different pancakes with other flavours or other styles. I'm very basic and just have maple syrup on top and maybe some strawberries.

    5. Seriously... this post just made me miss Colorado and Snooze! That was one of our very favorite breakfast places, and we even ate at the one in Denver on the morning of our wedding. Love Snooze! My favorites were always their pancakes... they didn't have the red velvet ones when we went though. They look delicious!
