Red Velvet Pancakes

Earlier this year my husband ordered red velvet pancakes for breakfast at IHOP. I just knew they would taste terrible but since he insisted they tasted good, I decided to try them. I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with the taste. I came across this recipe on the web and decided to try it.

Makes 5 Pancakes

2 cups dry Complete pancake mix
1 1/2 cups water
2 teaspoons red food coloring
1 teaspoon cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon white vinegar

powdered sugar
cream cheese icing
whipped cream

Heat oil in a skillet over medium/high heat. Mix the cocoa powder, food coloring, vanilla, and vinegar to make the red velvet paste in a small bowl. In a large bowl, add the pancake mix. Then stir in the water and red velvet paste, taking care to blend well but not over-mix. Add a large spoonful of the batter to the skillet, until bottom edge looks cooked and a few tiny bubbles are coming through the top of the cake. Then flip with a spatula and repeat.
