How to Make Red Velvet Pancakes

Sweet chocolate and tangy cream cheese smooshed together with the texture of dreams. Red velvet has proven its popularity as a cake: allow us to present the winning combo in flatter form! Our red velvet pancake recipe is easier than you might think to recreate and a real crowd-pleaser. Leave the lemon and sugar in the cupboard.


To make 20 pancakes, you’ll need:

    • 300ml buttermilk
    • 100g cream cheese at room temperature
    • 125g granulated or caster sugar
    • 70ml cup sour cream
    • 120g unsalted butter
    • 250g plain flour
    • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 2 large eggs
    • 3 tbsp milk
    • 2 tbsp icing sugar
    • 2 tsp red food coloring
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
    • 1/2 tsp baking soda
    • 1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • Maple syrup, for serving
    • METHOD:

    • Melt your butter in a pan over a low heat and leave to cool
    • Whisk together the cream cheese, sour cream and icing sugar until smooth, then drizzle in milk as needed until you have a liquid consistency for drizzling – this is your sauce
    • Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt in another mixing bowl
    • Beat the eggs and granulated sugar in another mixing bowl until pale yellow, then beat in the buttermilk, melted butter, food colouring, vanilla and vinegar
    • Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and gently fold until just mixed. Tip: avoid over-mixing which would lead to a less fluffy texture in your finished pancakes!
    • Heat a large, non-stick skillet over medium-low heat and pour on ladels of batter, spaced evenly apart
    • Cook for 3 min or until bubbles on the surface pop slowly and edges begin to firm
    • Flip and cook for another 1 to 2 min or until the bottoms are set and the pancakes are cooked through
    • Repeat with the remaining batter
    • Drizzle with sauce and syrup and enjoy!
