I don’t often post within a few hours of cooking a dish, but this was something I was excited to put up as soon as I could. For brunch today, I made red velvet pancakes from a recipe I found on Food Republic.
Unintentionally, the rest of my brunch items were also in the red color range. Oh well…red IS a lucky color in the Vietnamese/Chinese culture after all.
The recipe ended up using the ENTIRE brand new bottle of red food coloring I bought. As you can see, the batter was REALLY red.
All the pancakes turned out a deeper color, almost burnt-looking, once cooked.
No matter what I did, I couldn’t get the pancakes to look like the ones on Food Republic.
I think the recipe needs a few minor tweaks in my opinion, but I still enjoyed them. A couple of people joined me for brunch, my roommate and a friend, and they seemed to enjoy them even more than I did. So what more can you ask for?
