- Basic batter
- Cocoa powder
- Red food colouring
Measure out the basic pancake ingredients but replace 20g of the flour with cocoa powder. Mix with the rest of the ingredients.
Add a few drops of red food colouring at time until you get the desired colour. You may need to add a little more flour if the mixture is looking a bit runny.
Make up the pancakes according to the recipe.
