Red Velvet Pancakes

We eat a lot of pancakes in our house, tonight we wanted to try something a bit different so we tried Red Velvet Pancakes.
So I kind of feel like this recipe is a copout, but kind of not because I did do a bit of trial and error tonight before coming up with this recipe. Here's what my pancakes looked like done (and under bad lighting, sorry). I served them with a dollop of Cream Cheese Frosting in lieu of butter and syrup.

Red Velvet Pancakes

Ingredients:

1 cup Pancake Mix (home made or store bought)
1 cup Red Velvet Cake Mix (homemade or store bought)
1 1/2 cups Buttermilk (or soured milk)
2 eggs
1 Tbsp oil
2 Tbsp melted butter

Directions:

  1. Combine oil, milk and eggs in a bowl. Beat with a whisk until liquid is well combined and foamy.
  2. Add red velvet mix, pancake batter and melted butter. Mix with a whisk until combined...do not over beat (batter should be lumpy). Set batter aside for 10-20 minutes before cooking, this is important as it doesnt turn out the same unless you do.
  3. Pour 2-4 oz of batter on a hot (350*f) griddle. These pancakes take about 1-1/2 to 2 times a long as a regular pancake, dont rush it. Cook until bubbly, a little dry around the edges, when you think they're ready, wait 30 seconds more, then turn and brown the other side. Do not pat down pancakes or they will flatten.

Sadly... my molds dont work well with this recipe, the moisture content got trapped inside and stayed raw.  But as a regular pancake they were fantastic.
