RE: All-Natural Red Velvet Pancakes with Dark Chocolate Mocha Syrup(FOOD PHOTO SHOOT)

in #food4 years ago

Oh great idea substituting the beet puree for the red food coloring! The cauldron-like container for the syrup is a nice touch. From what I understand though, what makes red velvet, well, "red velvet" is the combination of the chocolate with the cream cheese icing or frosting. That's why there's a black velvet as well, chocolate that's not tainted with red food coloring, but that's basically the difference between the two.

I learned that from a baking class I attended a while back. Now, I'm no baker, so don't take my word for it.


I see where you are coming from. I do my best not to be confined by the 'standard' naming conventions, but if anyone feels I've used a name improperly, I apologize. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment @jedau

Oh, no no no. Don't get me wrong. It wasn't meant to call you out or anything. I was merely sharing what I know. Really though, I'm not sure whether what I know is right or not.
