Cocoa-kissed red velvet pancakes

 
This V-Day weekend, treat your fam, your sleepover sistahs or just Y-O-U to a breakfast so decadent it’s more like dessert. Turn spectacular red velvet pancakes (thanks for the recipe, Nestle!) into edible Valentines by grabbing heart-shaped cookie cutters. Indulge, girlies—Heart Day only comes once a year!

 

Ingredients
(makes 10 pancakes)

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 tablespoons NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Baking Cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
1 cup reduced-fat buttermilk or lowfat milk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon red food coloring
Heart-shaped pancake cutters or cookie cutters (optional)
Optional garnishes: butter, powdered sugar, maple syrup and fresh berries

Directions
 

1. Combine flour, sugar, baking cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl; stir well.

2. Whisk egg, buttermilk, butter, vanilla extract and food coloring together in large bowl. Add to flour mixture; stir to combine. Allow mixture to sit for 5 minutes (this produces more tender pancakes).

3. Heat a nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Brush with a little oil or butter. Add about ¼ cup batter to skillet. Cook for about 2 minutes or until bubbles start to form on top. Flip and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until bottom is lightly browned. Serve immediately with butter, powdered sugar, syrup and berries.

Cook’s Tip: If using pancake or cookie cutters, be sure to coat with a little oil so the pancakes don’t stick. Place cutters in skillet and pour batter into cutters. Remove cutters before flipping.
