Luxurious Christmas

I love me some Christmas. I love me some pancakes.

So naturally, that would lead to Red Velvet pancakes.

I've been itching to do some baking and (slightly) adventurous cooking these last few weeks ... and this morning I did a little bit o that. I have no problem making a bigger dinner for one person and having leftovers ... but the feeling doesn't quite transcend to breakfast foods. I like to make breakfast foods for other people. 

Thus, this morning as Baby Sister and I were in the kitchen enjoying a fresh pot of coffee in the kitchen, it was determined that Red Velvet Pancakes would be the best option for ringing in Christmas Eve morning.
I had seen the recipe a few times on Pinterest but decided to take a much easier route towards the fluffy delights. That's right. I cheated. Bisquick baby.

Deciding to go the Bisquick route meant the perfect amount of measuring for someone who doesn't like to measure. I just throw things in a bowl and hope it works out .... thankfully it normally does and it did this time.

End result? Delicious pancakes.... that we fondly referred to as "blood cakes" when they were in the pan. But when they were on the plate.... all covered in syrupy goodness? Most definitely were they the slightly luxurious red velvet pancakes.

Here's the easy way out (slash best way):
  • Basic Bisquick recipe
  • 2 tablespoons-ish of cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons-ish of red food coloring
  • 3 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1 teaspooon of baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar
These will be some awesome pancakes. I don't want to say the best because, well... I don't know where you've been eating breakfast. But, they will be great ... and you will feel oh so fancy.

I highly recommend you also eat them sitting in front of the fire on Christmas Eve... but that is really only possible one day a year.
