These Vegan Red Velvet Pancakes are perfect for your loved ones on Valentine’s day breakfast or brunch.
For this month’s Bread Bakers, our host for the month Wendy (A Day in the Life on the Farm) wanted us to make Pancakes. Apparently, last week of February is National Pancake week. So what better way to celebrate the occasion but with some amazing pancakes from all over the world. I made these pretty and delicious Red Velvet Pancakes.These pancakes are 100% vegan and doesn’t have any added artificial color. The beautiful color comes from powdered beets. I picked up a bag of it from Kalustyan’s in NYC and have been itching to use it ever since. You can use pureed roasted or boiled beets instead.These red velvet pancakes are soft, fluffy, chocolaty and absolutely delicious. My kids couldn’t stop eating them — didn’t even notice the beets in them. I topped them with coconut whipped cream, strawberries and some chocolate sauce. Make these for your loved ones on Valentine’s day or any day and Enjoy!!Check out what Pancakes my fellow bread bakers have cooked up today:
