Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).
  2. Whisk 2 cups milk and vinegar together in a bowl; let rest until milk sours, about 2 minutes.
  3. Sift flour, white sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl; whisk to combine.
  4. Whisk milk mixture, melted unsalted butter, eggs, red food coloring, and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract together in a bowl.
  5. Pour milk mixture into flour mixture and stir until just combined; the batter should be lumpy.
  6. Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-low heat and spray with cooking spray. Drop batter by 1/4-cup onto the skillet and cook until bubbles form and the edges are dry, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook until browned on the other side, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter. Transfer cooked pancakes to a baking sheet and keep warm in the preheated oven.
  7. Beat cream cheese and softened butter together in a bowl until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add 1 cup confectioners' sugar, 1/4 milk, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract; beat until smooth, adding more milk to reach desired consistency. Pour cream cheese glaze over pancakes and dust with remaining confectioners' sugar.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • To avoid browning the red pancake, cook at a lower heat and flip early. These pancakes are delicate so use a large flexible spatula.
  • For the glaze you can use an electric mixer if you like. I use a potato masher to blend the butter, sugar, and cream cheese, then whisk in the milk. Store glaze in a resealable plastic bag with the end snipped off for easy drizzling.
  • You can substitute 2 cups buttermilk for the 2 cups milk and 2 tablespoons vinegar.

these were so good. i didn't actually put in any red food dye so it was more of a chocolate pancake, but it was simply delightful. the glaze was delicious.

We all thought this was pretty tasty, made it this morning for a valentines day breakfast treat! The cream cheese frosting sauce is really good. I will say that mixing the batter well then letting it sit for 10-15 would be ideal, I made a mistake and didn't mix well enough and had to mix it again. Which of course made them a little flatter than they would have been originally. Overall, these had a great flavour! Thanks for a great recipe! Oh, and it makes quite a few pancakes, normally we double pancake recipes..no need for this one!
