Roses are red, violets are blue, oh look, our pancakes are red too! So what is Red Velvet exactly? Red Velvet cake comes from the South. It is a butter cream cake that has cocoa and hints of beet or radish and this is what makes it red. Wouldn't you know, it is amazing as pancakes too! Your kitchen will smell of cupcakes as you make Valentine's brunch in just minutes!
