Well everyone, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and how amazing would it be to keep with the RED themed holiday by adding in some food and beverages to match? Red velvet pancakes would be a great way to start off the day. Most would associate red velvet with the red velvet cake which has been a prize at many a functions but now it is time to incorporate the cake into thinner slices. The recipe is simple and a great holiday craft in its own given right plus the left over batter could probably be used to make mini-cupcakes.
