Red Velvet Pancakes


When I first heard about red velvet pancakes I thought, "Yuck"! As you can see, I had a change of heart. I decided to give it a go all in the name of love and the month of love. There's just a special place in my heart for festive foods!             

They were nothing like I expected. I thought they would be a steaming hot, sweet mess. To my surprise it was like regular pancakes infused with red velvet cake. The best part was the cream cheese glaze. De.li.cious!
