Valentine pancakes

Deep pink color with a touch of dark chocolate for a Saint Valentine Day breakfast. Serve the pink pancakes with your favorite toppings and syrup.


1 c flour (all purpose flour)
1 pn salt
2 egg (beaten)
1⁄2 c milk (full fat)
2 T honey (or sugar)
3 T beet (peeled and grated)
3 T chocolate (finely chopped dark chocolate)
1 t cinnamon (powder)
2 T butter (melted, plus some more to cook)


  1. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl.
  2. Add beaten eggs, milk, honey and vanilla extract. Mix everything to make a batter.
  3. Fold in the grated beet, chopped chocolate and cinnamon powder.
  4. Finally, blend in the melted butter.
  5. Heat a large skillet over a medium-high heat and add a littler butter, just enough to coat the pan once melted.
  6. Drop 1-2 tablespoons batter per pancake into the pan, leaving some room around. There should be room to cook 2-3 pancakes at the same time.
  7. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until bubbles have formed and the top of the pancake starts to set.
  8. Flip the pancakes over and cook 2-3 minutes more on the other side, until fully set and browned on that side.
  9. Transfer pancakes to a warm plate.
  10. Add a little more butter to the pan and keep cooking pancakes until the batter is finished.
