Red Velvet Baked Pancake with Honeyed Whipped Cream Cheese

Red Velvet baked pancake with honeyed whipped cream cheese (via abeautifulmess.com)Is everyone thinking about Valentine’s Day yet? Here’s all the responses I just imagined:

1. “Yes, I already have everything planned. I’m so excited about my special trip/dinner/present I already have ready for next weekend.”

2. “Whoa, what?! That’s this month? What day is it today? Oh man, I need to make a plan so I don’t look like a real jerk this year.”

3. “HOW DARE YOU MENTION THAT FAKE HOLIDAY TO ME! I HATE YOU AND EVERYONE WHO SO MUCH AS WEARS PINK THIS MONTH!”

Why is my person #3 so touchy? I don’t know. My imagination is weird like that I guess.

Red Velvet baked pancake with honeyed whipped cream cheese (via abeautifulmess.com) No matter if you’re ready, not ready,  let’s just make some pancakes. I mean, why not? I think we can all agree on pancakes no matter what our Valentine’s perspectives are. 

This recipe is for a baked pancake— sometimes called a dutch pancake. If you’ve never had one before, you’re in for a real treat today as these are even easier to make than traditional pancakes (no flipping required!), but still have that soft, spongy pancake goodness. 🙂

Red velvet dutch pancake recipeRed Velvet Baked Pancake with Honeyed Whipped Cream Cheese, serves two.

1/3 cup flour
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon cocoa
2 eggs
1/3 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon butter for the pan
3-5 drops red food coloring (depending how red you like it)
4 oz softened cream cheese
2 teaspoons honey
1-2 teaspoons whole milk or cream

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and cocoa. Whisk to combine. Then, whisk in the eggs, milk and vanilla.

Red velvet dutch pancake recipe Place a small cast iron or oven safe skillet in the oven with the butter. Preheat to 350°F. Once the oven is ready and the butter has melted, remove the pan from the oven (use a pot holder for goodness sake!), and swirl to coat the entire pan in butter. Pour the batter in the center and bake for 15-18 minutes.

As it bakes, the pancake will begin to sort of creep up on the edges and curl in on itself. This is a good thing! It may deflate a little once you remove it from the oven—also fine! Just managing expectations here.

Red Velvet baked pancake with honeyed whipped cream cheese (via abeautifulmess.com) For the whipped cream cheese, just use an electric mixer to whip the softened cream cheese and honey together. Add a teaspoon or two of milk or cream and blend again until you get a spreadable consistency. Taste, and add more honey to your liking. Serve warm and top with the cream and any fresh fruit you prefer. Enjoy! xo. Emma

Note: The cast iron pan above is roughly 8 inches across. If your pan is larger (twice the size) you will need to double the recipe.

  • I just HAVE to say, you guys seriously need to consider designing a recipe tin and sell it to all of your fellow foodies! <3 I’d totally be first on the list.

  • Oh wow, I am definitely going to have to whip up a batch of these asap! I LOVE pancakes, but I’ve never tried a baked one! Thanks for the great idea!

  • These look amazing, I’m definitely going to attempt to make these on valentines day!

  • Looks lovely!
    Here a picture of my own real Dutch pancakes (since I’m Dutch 😉 ) http://instagram.com/p/uOF4enzbnM/?modal=true
    Just milk, flour and eggs. (100 grams of flour,250 ml of milk and 1 egg, for one person)

  • I am not very fan of Valenti´s Day but this is good idea for starting to change it ; )

  • These look amazing! I need o make these stat! They will go well with my Valentines tips I am planning on posting tomorrow 🙂

  • I’m number 3 😛 Love the arty crafty and food side of it but other than that no. It’s a Hallmark Holiday that’s more like cha-ching day for florists/chocolate shops and restaurants with their $180 picnic for two that has less food than high tea. It’s just a date that doesn’t mean anything.

    But these pancakes look great! If we don’t have a cast iron or oven safe skillet, can we use a baking dish?

    P.S. All your “sign in with…” options all link to typepad.

  • My partner and i dont celebrate valentines day, probably because there’s six childrens birthdays and our own through the year to spend on.
    However i like the idea of these and there is always a good reason for a special breakfast.
    Because they are Dutch, does that mean you both make your own. ..

  • This looks amazing and I love that it’s baked too – super easy!

  • Looks so good!! I also love your strawberry bowl from Anthropologie 🙂

  • I’m going to make this for my husband on Valentine’s morning. He loves red velvet sweet stuff.

  • I can’t believe that red velvet is just chocolate dyed red. It tastes so much better and seems like it’d be something more than just red chocolate! But soooo good. -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s

  • This looks delicious! However, I think categorizing people as ready, not ready, or “generally pissed” with regards to Valentine’s Day is a little…coarse, as it were. You’re making a pretty overt value judgment when you imply that everyone who disregards Valentine’s Day is some kind of cartoonishly angry recluse who’s just bitter about life and all too eager to express that to everyone they meet, vis-a-vis the caps-lock button on their keyboard. And while haters like that certainly exist, I think it’s a stretch to assume that they make up the entirety of the group of people who–whether they’re single, in a relationship, or somewhere in between–don’t choose to pay much attention to Valentine’s Day.

  • I’m absolutely a pancake fanatic yet somehow I’ve never had the baked variety before! These look delicious! And I love that they are “red velvet” – so perfect for you ladies!
