How to prepare the pancacke red velvet recipe

  1. First, beat the eggs with the sugar, milk, flour and yeast with the help of a whisk to obtain a homogeneous batter.
  2. Then add a few drops of red food coloring (a little at a time, I recommend), until you get the desired shade of red.
  3. Let the dough rest for a few hours in the refrigerator if you can, otherwise you can start cooking immediately.
  4. Heat a non-stick pan and grease it slightly. With a ladle, drop small piles of dough spacing them well and start cooking over medium heat. As soon as bubbles form on the surface, you can turn them with a spatula and continue cooking on the other side as well. The trick to keeping pancakes warm is to place them one on top of the top.
  5. Once ready, serve them garnished with whipped cream and raspberries to taste (if they are in season).

To prepare the red velvet pancakes without coloring, simply blend 50 g of red beetroot cut into small pieces with 50 g of milk . Add everything to the mixture and proceed as per recipe. As mentioned, the color will not be identical but still of great effect. Have you noticed how these pancakes look like red velvet cake ?
