As a pancake recipe, this is really good. The pancakes cooked up moist and cake-y and were quite filling. But I can't really speak to the "red velvet" part yet as I modified the recipe to make them healthier and less sweet. I used white wheat flour and omitted the powdered sugar entirely (which was just as well, as the batter would have been too thick), and tried using the juice of 1 pureed beet for the coloring. The cocoa and the darker flour overpowered the red color so that the pancakes were simply a chocolate color, although they tasted great - chocolatey with no "beet" flavor. I also used fat-free vanilla Greek yogurt instead of the cream cheese butter, and this made a fine substitute. Next time I will try more beet juice and less cocoa for a redder color, and maybe mix some cream cheese into the yogurt.

They tasted more like chocolate pancakes rather than red velvet. I will use less cocoa next time.
