If you've seen the tearjerker classic film Steel Magnolias, you remember the groom's cake. Although it looked like a gray armadillo on the outside, the cake itself was blood red. Not exactly uber-appetizing, huh! Who would have thought that however many years later, the traditional Southern red velvet cake would be the "it" dessert of the moment. One the whole country was salivating over?
For instance, you've surely tried a slice of red velvet cake or a red velvet cupcake. There are also those cute little red velvet whoopie pies at Starbucks. But have you had something red velvet for ... BREAKFAST? Oh yeah, this is a whole new frontier! Red velvet pancakes are sweeping the nation. Even sweeter news: Your own batch is super-easy to make.
