Red velvet buttermilk pancakes with maple cream on top will brighten up your weekend breakfast. In fact, this easy pancake recipe is quick enough to make any day!
One of the first things I learned when we became a homeschool family was that my boys absolutely, positively could not focus for long if they didn’t eat a hot breakfast every day. If I tried to skate by with giving them just a bowl of cereal? Forget it! Those boys would be
whining politely asking for a snack within half an hour.
So a hot breakfast quickly became the norm in our house–at least Monday through Friday, anyway. That’s cool and all because I love hot a breakfast as much as the next person, but morning and I are not friends. We would probably get along much better if it didn’t come so early in the day. So most days we don’t do anything fancy: muffins & smoothies, oatmeal, scrambled eggs, and cream of wheat are the norm. However the other day, I wanted something a little more than the norm for breakfast. I needed something more.
I’m going to be honest here…my Life is a Locker Room.
What with living in a house teeming with testosterone in the form of four male offspring and a hockey-playing Bacon Slayer, I spend four to five days per week on the soccer field, and maybe a bonus night at the hockey arena. Due to those facts, and being that fall on the 45th parallel has been rainy with pockets of sunshine, we have towels drying over the porch rails, pads of various shapes and sizes “airing out” everywhere, muddy cleats and boots outside of every exterior door, and a trail of sports equipment that I’m pretty sure could circumvent
the globe the house three times.
As a former tomboy, I can handle it most of the time, and more often than not I’m loving it; however sometimes all that manliness can be a bit much. Sometimes a girl just needs to glam it up with something pink! I may even have a teensy-little hissy-fit about it on occasion.
When I feel the need for a little extra femininity-infusion these Red Velvet Buttermilk Pancakes are just what I need.
Light and fluffy pancakes with the faintest hint of cocoa, dripping with a real maple cream cheese
frosting icing topping. They’re pretty and it’s like having cupcakes for breakfast!
But guys, don’t freak out on me! They may be pink, but these red velvet buttermilk pancakes are a delicious, stick-to-your-ribs breakfast. They will fill you up so that you can pursue big manly things throughout the day. Trust me…I know these things.
