Red Velvet Pancakes

I made these heart-shaped red velvet pancakes for John's birthday. I poured the batter into an empty syrup bottle so I could easily make heart shapes. I thought they were good, and the kids really loved them, but John didn't seem very impressed. This recipe made plenty for the four of us.

Red Velvet Pancakes
2 c. flour
2 T. cocoa
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
2 T. sugar
2 eggs
2 T. melted butter or oil
2 c. buttermilk (milk with a dash of vinegar)
2 t. vanilla extract
red food coloring

Mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients. Add food coloring if desired. I added a few drops of pink food coloring and the finished pancakes don't look very red. I served them with fresh whipped cream.
