Years ago I’d heard rumors about “red velvet pancakes,” but I am a typical urban millennial and don’t cook that often so I filed this knowledge away. Last week, I was house sitting in a big country home with a full pantry. Basically the opposite of my tiny kitchen.

(So yes, these are a dessert and not a dinner, judge away). It took less than five minutes for me to put an egg, milk, baking soda and vanilla in the blender, mix it up, and pour it onto a griddle.
