recipe : red velvet pancakes with cream cheese glaze

Red Velvet. Oh, sweet Red Velvet. Some of you may already know my obsession with it. My husband shares my obsession. So, what better way to celebrate my love of red velvet and pancakes than on Valentine's Day with my love? These pancakes had me at hello. I've been tempted to make red velvet pancakes for awhile, and finally made it happen. I knew these were going to be good as soon as I smelled them cooking on the stove. They were decadent, rich, and tasted just like red velvet cake. The cream cheese glaze added the perfect finishing touch. What a perfect combination. Yum! We will definitely be making these again.
