Red Velvet Pancakes

Vibrant colored food seems to be a huge trend for some time. Red velvet cake is actually not that new but still fascinating. And the good thing about it is that you don´t even need any food coloring. Rootbeet is the secret ingredient to get the red color. And you don´t have to be afraid that it would taste like rootbeet because it doesn’t.

If you´re still skeptical just give it a try:



150g All purpose flour

25g Rootbeet powder

50g Sugar

50g Oil (I recommend coconut oil because of the taste.)

1 Ripe smashed banana

150ml Soymilk

1tsp Vanilla

1tsp Apple vinegar

2 tsp Baking soda

+Topping of your choice


  1. Mix all the dry ingredients.
  2. Add all the liquids and the smashed banana.
  3. Preheat a pan with on medium heat and grease it with some oil.
  4. Using 3 spoons each, cook the pancakes till bubbles appear on surface, turn and cook further until cooked through
  5. Topp them of with the topping of your choice ( I used soy yogurt, different kinds of fruit and some icing sugar.).
