Red Velvet Pancakes

I first tried Red Velvet Pancakes when I was on a trip in Santa Monica, CA. We went to a food truck festival and the Buttermilk Truck (owned and operated by a pastry chef) was serving this delicious breakfast that tastes more like dessert.

For those of you that are not familiar with Red Velvet Pancakes it tastes more light and cake like than regular pancakes. These pancakes are filled with gourmet dark chocolate morsels and then topped with rich cream cheese glaze. It is absolutely heavenly!!!!

At Christmas time I found a Red Velvet Pancake mix at Cost Plus that allowed me to experiment with different toppings without being too time consuming. I found that I also like the red velvet pancakes with chocolate morsels and topped with REAL maple syrup instead of using the cream cheese glaze.

I finally found a recipe from scratch that does Red Velvet Pancakes justice.

**This would also me a great Valentine's Day breakfast!**
