Yummy, Yummy and Loveable

For the Pancakes:

  • 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups red velvet cake mix
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 cups milk (I used closer to 2)

For the Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 4 oz. Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 c. Butter, softened
  • 2 – 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp. milk
  • splash of vanilla, if desired

For the Pancakes:

  1. Whisk together all ingredients except for 1 cup milk.
  2. Add remaining milk 1/4 cup at a time until you’ve reached your desired “pancake consistency” (thinner batter for thinner pancakes, thicker batter for thicker pancakes… obviously).
  3. Pour pancake batter 1/4 cup at a time onto a preheated (about 300º) and buttered griddle or skillet.
  4. When bubbles form on top, flip and cook for another minute or two on the other side.

For the Cream Cheese Frosting

  1. In a stand mixer, whisk together the cream cheese and butter until smooth.
  2. Add in powdered sugar and milk, alternately, 1 cup (sugar) and 1 tbsp. (milk) at a time until you’ve reached your desired consistency and sweetness.
