Cocoa-Kissed Red Velvet Pancakes

Cocoa-Kissed Red Velvet Pancakes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Baking Cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup reduced-fat buttermilk or lowfat milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon red food coloring
  • Heart-shaped pancake cutters or cookie cutters (optional)
  • Optional garnishes: butter, powdered sugar, maple syrup and fresh berries

Instructions

  1. Combine flour, sugar, baking cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl; stir well.
  2. Whisk egg, buttermilk, butter, vanilla extract and food coloring together in large bowl. Add to flour mixture; stir to combine. Allow mixture to sit for 5 minutes (this produces more tender pancakes).
  3. Heat nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Brush with a little oil or butter. Add about 1/4 cup batter to skillet. Cook for about 2 minutes or until bubbles start to form on top. Flip and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until bottom is lightly browned. Serve immediately with butter, powdered sugar, syrup and berries.
  4. If using pancake or cookie cutters, be sure to coat with a little oil so the pancakes don’t stick. Place cutters in skillet and pour batter into cutters. Remove cutters before flipping.

Prep Time: 10 min | Cook Time: 5 min | Servings: 10 pancakes
