Cake Batter Red Velvet Pancakes
- 2 cups red velvet cake mix
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 1/4 cup milk or water
- 1 egg
- 1 Tablespoon butter or oil for greasing the pan
- Cream Cheese Syrup
- 4 ounces cream cheese at room temperature
- ¼ cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Heat skillet on medium heat while you prepare the batter. In a medium bowl whisk the egg and milk until well combined.
- Add the red velvet flour and all-purpose flour at the same time. Beat by hand for 2-3 minutes until the batter is fluffy.
- Brush the pan with oil or butter and pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet, spread out with a spoon if the batter is too thick.
- Cook until the small bubble (about 1 minute or less) begin to form of the pancake, flip and cook for no more then 1 minute.
- Make sure to leave the heat on medium/low so the pancakes don’t burn. Keep a close eye on them while cooking.
- Cook pancakes one by one until all are finished.
Cream Cheese Syrup
- Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla for 1-2 minutes by hand.
- Drizzle over pancakes and enjoy!
Nutella Filled French Crepes
- 2 large eggs
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 3 tablespoons salted butter, melted
- Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and pulse for 10 seconds until smooth. Let the batter rest for 10 minutes (or up to 48 hours in the fridge).
- Heat a crepe pan or nonstick pan over medium heat. You may need to add a little butter to the pan and swirl it to coat the bottom before cooking your first crepe.
- Pour about 1/4 cup of batter into the hot pan, tilting and swirling the pan while pouring, to cover the bottom of the pan in a thin, even layer of crepe batter. Let it cook for about 30 seconds until lightly browned around the edges and the top has lost its glossy wet sheen, then carefully flip with a crepe spatula or other flat tool and cook on the other side for about 10 seconds. Remove to a plate and repeat with remaining crepe batter.
- Serve with your favorite crepe fillings.
- After the crepes have cooled completely, you can store them in a freezer-safe ziploc bag in the refrigerator for up to five days or in the freezer for up to two months.
- Place sheets of parchment or waxed paper between each crepe before freezing. We like to reheat our crepes in the microwave for a few seconds until warm and pliable again.
- For savory crepes, decrease the sugar to 1 teaspoon, omit the vanilla completely, and add 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 cup chopped fresh herbs (chives are my favorite for savory crepes).
