I like pancakes, and so does my family, but they don’t have any real nourishment other than the eggs. One day I said to my son, “You know what, today we’re not making pancakes. We’re making Mancakes”. Mancakes got more to it than just flour and water. Mancakes got to nourish. We put coconut oil in them, some pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds, chia seeds, sometimes walnuts. On Saturday mornings I’ll make my kids Mancakes with maple syrup as a treat.” —Ziggy Marley

It’s just another craze after the red velvet explosion in the dessert world, someone had to take it a step further. What’s the step? It’s a step up in the food line up of the day to breakfast. Many a home cook is trying to replicate the red velvet pancakes, a breakfast men item on the
Los Angeles based Buttermilk Food Truck. When you make it to LA, follow that food truck but if that is not happening soon the the pancake recipe is at least is quite simple.
Buttermilk Food Truck
- Use a red velvet from scratch recipe or boxed red velvet cake mix. The key ingredient which needs to be used is buttermilk so instead of the suggested liquid in your recipe swap it for buttermilk.
- Add two chocolate chip to each pancake while on the griddle.
- Use a dollop of cream cheese frosting and maple syrup to taste.
- Basically, the red velvet pancake recipe is cake batter fried like a pancake.
