Serve up a romantic breakfast-in-bed for your Valentine with these decadent pancakes.  Simply beautiful, and yet more pleasing to the taste-buds than even the eyes.  I know my sweetheart revels in any opportunity to feel just so pampered. How fun it is to celebrate the month of love through the delights of sweet treats.   

Red Velvet Pancakes

Mix together dry ingredients and set aside. Melt butter in separate bowl, then add buttermilk, eggs, vanilla, and food coloring. Blend well. Pour in dry mixture and beat until smooth.

Pour ½ cup worth of the whipped batter on a greased skillet. Pan fry on medium heat until browned. Flip over and brown again. Top with desired toppings and serve warm.

{To make a heart shaped pancake (optional) place a heart shaped cookie cutter on the skillet, and pour batter into the cookie cutter. Remove form before flipping.}
