Red Velvet Pancakes Tips

I have to be honest here, these are more like eating dessert than breakfast if you top them with the cream cheese topping, but hey, it’s Valentines Day right? 

I declare it “sweets all day long” day!  But if you prefer, the red velvet flavor is just as delicious with a pat of butter and maple syrup drizzled over them.

For an easy morning:  Mix dry ingredients and make topping the night before.  Cover and place pancake mix on a counter, and topping in refrigerator. 

The next morning, remove topping so it can become room temperature, and just add wet ingredients to pancake mix, cook and serve.

Cook Time: 16 minutes

Red Velvet Pancakes can make an ordinary breakfast feel extraordinary. Especially when you make them heart shaped for Valentines Day.


Red Velvet Pancakes

Cream Cheese Topping

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For Toppings (optional)

  • chopped chocolate
  • fresh strawberries and blueberries
  • fresh mint
  • powdered sugar
  • maple syrup


  1. Prepare cream cheese topping. Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese sugar and vanilla until smooth. Add the cream and continue to beat until the mixture thickens, about 2 minutes and. Set aside or refrigerate if not using right away.
  2. Pre-heat skillet or griddle over medium heat or 320°
  3. Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Whisk thoroughly to combine until all lumps are gone.
  4. In a separate bowl, thoroughly mix the buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, vinegar, and food coloring. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and add the buttermilk mixture. Stir until mostly combined. Add in the melted butter and fold gently to mix.
  5. Pour batter in 1/4 cup measurements onto skillet and let cook until bubbles form on top, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for 1 minute more.
  6. Serve with sweet cream cheese topping or powdered sugar, fresh berries, chopped chocolate, a sprig of mint, and maple syrup. Enjoy immediately!


if you wish to make heart pancakes, use a heart-shaped pancake mold or metal cookie cutter. Be sure to grease inside of the mold and fill 1/2 way with pancake batter. Remove mold when ready to flip.
