If you love the delicious sweetness of Red Velvet Cake, then you will totally lose yourself in the irresistible richness of these 'way out of the ordinary' pancakes. They would be perfect for a 'Date Night' with your honey. Break out the red lingerie and be ready for the ooohs and the ahhs to begin!

2 cups of Red Velvet cake mix from an 18.25 oz. box
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons canola oil
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon water
pure maple syrup, warmed and poured into a pretty pitcher to serve
whipped cream, the real thing (don't trust anything from a can for this recipe)
powdered sugar
dark chocolate shavings

Combine cake mix with well beaten eggs and water in mixing bowl. Beat with electric mixer until just combined. If it looks to thick, add a little more water.
Preheat non-stick skillet to medium heat. Pour in desired amount, and watch carefully as these will brown quicker than regular pancakes. Keep warm in oven on lowest heat setting.
To Serve: Top with maple syrup, whipped cream, powdered sugar and chocolate shavings. If you're feeling a little theatrical, and you well should be if you are wearing the red lingerie, top it all off with some stemmed maraschino cherries. Light a red cinnamon scented candle, place the plate before him, set down on his lap, and feed him and yourself this delectable concoction. Sweet Dreams!
