Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon red food coloring (adjust to your desired color)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Cooking spray or additional butter for greasing the pan

Instructions

1
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
2
In another bowl, combine the buttermilk, plain yogurt, egg, vanilla extract, and red food coloring. Mix until well combined.
3
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
4
Gently fold in the melted butter.
5
Preheat a griddle or a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Lightly grease the surface with cooking spray or a small amount of butter.
6
Pour 1/4 cup portions of the pancake batter onto the griddle for each pancake. You can adjust the size based on your preference.
7
Cook the pancakes until bubbles form on the surface, then flip them and cook for another 1-2 minutes or until they are cooked through and have a nice red velvet color.
8
Remove the pancakes from the griddle and keep them warm. You can keep them in a preheated oven at a low temperature if you're making a large batch.
9
Serve the Red Velvet Pancakes with your choice of toppings, such as whipped cream, chocolate chips, fresh berries, or maple syrup.
10
Enjoy your delicious and festive Red Velvet Pancakes for a romantic Valentine's Day breakfast!
