Red Velvet Pancakes with a Cream Cheese Maple Syrup

Oh goodness! Just typing in the title of this blog post is making me drool and want to indulge in some more of these yummy pancakes! My best friend's favorite dessert is red velvet anything - red velvet cake, red velvet brownies, red velvet cheesecake, etc. I found this recipe on Pinterest awhile back and have been waiting to have breakfast with her just so I could make these for her, and oh goodness it was heaven in our mouths. It was very hard to limit myself to just two pancakes, but somehow I managed! I just ate really slow and savored every bite.
