Red Velvet Pancakes

It's Valentine's day! I was up early because i was so excited to make this. Few days ago I stumbled across chocolatecoveredkatie's and blogilates's blog and both of them posted about Secretly Healthy Red Velvet Cupcake and Healthy Red Velvet Cupcakes and Pancakes for Valentine's day recipe. I was inspired by both of this recipe and created my version of Red Velvet Pancakes. I shared it with my family members and everyone was pleased with the gorgeous velvet red colour and of course the taste!

In case you didn't realize today is also the valentine's day from the Chinese! It's called 'Chap Goh Mei'. It means the last day of the Chinese New Year. Awesome!

*It's a single serving recipe*
Ingredients :
4 Tbsp  flour
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
2 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp of vanilla extract
pinch of both cinnamon and nutmeg (optional )
1/4 cup of milk
1 steamed beetroot (small)

1. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
2. Blitz the steamed beet, vanilla and milk until smooth.
3. Add the beetroot mixture to the dry.
4. Mix well just until moistened. Do not over mix.
5. Heat up your skillet and cook the pancakes.
6. Flip it when it forms bubbles on top and the edges are starting to cook.
7. Top it with yogurt or cream and serve with a touch of honey or chocolate with your loved ones. 
*or eat them up all by yourself! ;D*
Good Luck!
