Red Velvet Pancakes

Back to the blogging...

For New Year's Day morning I made red velvet pancakes for my friends while we watched the Rose Bowl Parade.

Found this recipe online and it turned out delicious:

1 1/2 C. flour
2 T. cocoa powder
3 T. sugar

1 t. cinnamon
1 t. salt

Wet ingredients:
1 1/4 C. buttermilk***
2 large eggs
1 t. vanilla
