Red Velvet Pancakes Pancakes

Red Velvet Pancakes for Valentine’s Day!

A few years ago one of my friends made these Red Velvet Pancakes at a brunch and they were so delicious!  Everyone love them and kept asking for the recipe.  She forgot to give it to us and I have been trying to find a recipe that equaled hers ever since and stumbled across this one from Betty Crocker and it is delish!

These pancakes would be a perfect dish for Valentines Day Breakfast or Brunch.  Personally I could eat these any time of the day.  They would not only be a great main dish but you could cook them up for dessert as well.  The Cream Cheese topping really adds a rich and creamy flavor, I’m not sure they would be the same without it!

These pancakes are not hard to make, they use common ingredients found in your house and they add that little extra something to start the day in a special way!    They cook up in minutes and are a definite crowd pleaser.  My kids loved them and everyone had seconds!

Red Velvet Pancake Recipe

5 / 5 (1 review)
Prep Time: 15 min | Cook Time: 20 min
Yield: 12 pancakes | Serves: 12


  • Cream Cheese Topping

  • 4 oz (half of 8-oz package) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • Pancakes

  • 2 cups Original Bisquick mix
  • 4 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons red food color*
  • 2 eggs
  • Powdered sugar, if desired


  1. In medium bowl, beat cream cheese, butter and 3 tablespoons milk with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Gradually beat in 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, on low speed until topping is smooth. Cover; set aside.
  2. In large bowl, stir all pancake ingredients except powdered sugar with wire whisk until well blended. Heat griddle or skillet over medium-high heat (375°F). (To test griddle, sprinkle with a few drops of water. If bubbles jump around, heat is just right.) Brush with vegetable oil if necessary or spray with cooking spray before heating.
  3. For each pancake, pour slightly less than 1/4 cup batter onto hot griddle. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until bubbles form on top and edges are dry. Turn; cook other side until golden brown.
  4. Spoon cream cheese topping into resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag. Cut off tiny corner of bag; squeeze bag to drizzle topping over pancakes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
