  • Whisk
  • skillet or griddle
  • Bowl
  • Spatula


  • 1 red velvet cake mix box 432g
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup of oil vegetable, canola, olive, etc. (60mL)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour plain flour (60g)
  • 2 to 2 1/2 cups of milk water, or almond milk (500 to 625mL)


  • Spray a skillet or griddle with kitchen spray and turn the heat in between medium-low and medium (325 F/162 C).
  • In a large bowl whisk the eggs and add in the oil and most of the milk. Mix those ingredients together.
  • Add in the flour and red velvet cake mix. Whisk to combine and then add in the rest of the milk as needed to get your desired consistency. I usually add it all.
  • Drop the pancake batter on the hot skillet. Allow it to cook for 2 to 3 minutes on the first side until it gets dry and dull-looking and the bubbles form and dissipate. Flip it over and cook it for half the time about another minute and a half long. Place on a plate when done.
  • Top with your favorite toppings like whipped cream, berries, powdered sugar, etc. I don't recommend maple syrup on these, but you can certainly do that too if you like. Enjoy!
