Red Velvet Pancakes

Valentine's Day this year is on a Tuesday and it's a working day so the kids can't eat relaxed breakfast. So, I made these red Velvet pancakes for them over the weekend. Both of them loved it and pretty much said they love this variation compared to regular pancakes.
The recipe is super simple. I took my regular pancake batter and add cocoa powder and red food coloring. That's it, but the taste was just amazing.
Funny part is my maid stays away from any sweet dish but she got tempted by the color of the pancakes, so I made it for her breakfast and she loved it.

Combine milk and vinegar to make sour milk and let it sit for 5 minutes.
Add all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix.
Add egg and butter to the milk. Whisk them together and add this mixture to the dry ingredients.
