Oh these are heavenly!
I have no particular interest in Red Velvet things, be it ice-cream, cupcakes or a whole slice of it. I mean the color is amazing but I always would choose vanilla.
I suppose many people like it because it’s new and people like to be categorized as ‘a la mode‘. I think I tried a cupcake with a cream cheese frosting. I loved the frosting but it took me a very long time to finish the whole thing because I don’t want to appear rude to the bride who gave me this on her wedding day.
Yesterday while making my Chocolate Chip Cookies, I found a gorgeous red food coloring. All of a sudden my mind suggested this recipe for dinner.
I saw several recipes and decided that this is the best.
I don’t have buttermilk so I added about 3 and 1/2 teaspoon of cream of Tartar to milk and wait for it to curdle. You can find other substitutes on this site.
I also replaced 1/2 a cup of flour (the recipe requested total of 1 and 1/2 cups of all purpose flour) to 3/4 cup of ground almonds. I can taste a bit of gritty, like bits of sand in my pancakes but overall it was a very nice pancake. I would definitely do it again 🙂
