Okay, maybe not screw cupcakes, that’s a little harsh, but since pie appears to have taken the world by storm as 2011’s dessert of choice, we thought we’d repurpose the good old red velvet technique into something everyone can still enjoy without the shame of being “so 2008.” Of course, if just the mention of pie for breakfast sets your belly rumbling, a nice porky quiche should set you right. And if you like quiche, you’ll love its simpler cousin, the frittata. But we digress. Leave confections big and small behind and indulge in these impressive and tasty red pancakes for brunch.
