This red velvet pancakes recipe is the perfect decadent dessert to enjoy on Fat Tuesday. From food blogger Anyonita Nibbles, the colorful flapjacks also come topped with Nutella cream cheese sauce.

This is ideal for treating yourself if you plan on restricting some aspect of your diet for Lent. Mardi Gras celebrations are known for being vibrant and colorful, which makes these bright red pancakes perfect for the holiday. They also make a great option to serve a significant other if you're celebrating Valentine's Day a little late.

The Shrove Tuesday appropriate red velvet pancakes recipe is described as "basically cake with double the chocolate." Made from scratch, the confectionery griddles can also be topped with toasted hazelnuts, sprinkles and whipped cream (not to mention extra chocolate chips).
