Red Velvet Pancakes with Coconut Syrup and Blueberries

red velvet pancakes

When we were at Cosco the other day my son spotted the fireworks. The 4th is right around the corner, and they have a ton of fun fireworks for sale there. I just couldn’t say no to him, so he came home with a huge box of fireworks with the agreement that he can’t open the box until the 4th. Everyday he’s been asking me, “Is it the 4th yet?”

Of course he’s too little to do anything but sparklers, even though my husband will let him shoot off a bottle rocket when I have my back turned. He says that they’re safe, I don’t think so, but maybe I’m just too overprotective. Since I know my son is going to be all wound all day waiting for the sun to set so he can have some firework fun, I’ve been planning some fun things to do that day to keep him as occupied as possible. And the first thing we’re going to start off with are these festive red, white and blue pancakes.

These pancakes are so easy to do. You just take  some Bisquick, a little cocoa powder and lots of red food coloring. To get that nice deep red color, I like to use gel food colors. After the batter is a nice deep red, just make some pretty pancakes on your griddle.

While the pancakes are cooking, take some coconut cream and powdered sugar along with a little coconut milk (or regular milk) to make the frosting. After you’re pancakes are done, just top with fresh blueberries and that’s it!

    what is coconut cream? Where do you get it?

    • Angie McGowan — July 9, 2013 @ 8:32 am

      It comes in a can, and you can find it near the coconut milk or in the drink mixer area. It’s also used for Pina Coladas

    Lovely idea but so much better when you make your own pancake batter, the bought stuff is terrible in comparison.
