Red Velvet Brownies + Pancakes

I recently baked some red velvet brownies and also last week was Pancake Day and I made some pancakes, so I thought write about both in a post. :)

Red Velvet Brownies

I made these the weekend before last. The recipe is from the current issue of Co-op magazine. Here's the link to the online version:

They came out quite nice. I've baked red velvet cake a couple of times but it hasn't come out that well for some reason! (I plan to try again in future). These were nice though. The only thing is they weren't red, even though I actually put more food colouring than it said by accident! I think they're supposed to have a red tinge. Never mind, lol. Here's a pic:

I used Sainsbury's own brand dark chocolate and a smaller bar of their value dark chocolate because the big bar wasn't quite enough. I'd maybe add some milk chocolate next time because the dark chocolate can be a bit strong, but I liked them overall.

If you like brownies check out this post about fudgy chocolate ones I made last year:


Then last Tuesday was Pancake Day aka Shrove Tuesday, so I made pancakes (English pancakes which are also known as crepes in some countries). I used the same recipe I did for the Imbolg pancakes I liked them but I think they were best the first time I made them! As I mentioned in that post, the only difference to the usual mixture I do was vegetable oil. This is the recipe again if you'd like to make your own:

And here's a photo:

Hope you had a good Pancake Day if you celebrated! And that you like the recipes if you try them. :)

Brilliant blog posts on


  1. Yeah. As it happens, I created two posts-one for Pancake Day and one for Valentine's Day, if you'd like to check it out. Red Velvet Brownies sound amazing! That's definitely an idea for next year's Valentine's that is if there IS a next year with all the work next year will bring.😀😕

    1. Thanks for your comment! The brownies were nice. Your posts sound good, I'll check them out. :) xx

  2. I didn't celebrate pancake day this year (no idea why!) but bofh of these sound so good. Although I have to say, I've never properly tried anything red velvet flavour before.

    1. Hi Julia, thanks for your comment. :) Thank you, they were nice. I got into red velvet cake a few years ago and got a bit addicited! lol. It's chocolate cake and the sponge has red food colouring in, so if you like chocolate cake, I expect you'll like it. :)

    2. P.S. Hope you're having a nice weekend. :)
