When it comes to red velvet, think beyond cakes and cupcakes. After all, you can now find red velvet ice cream and even red velvet tea in the grocery store. Inspired by this beloved flavor, the chefs in our Food Network Kitchen came up with five all-new red velvet recipes that are perfect for Valentine’s Day — or any day, really.

These fluffy red pancakes are great on their own and even better decked out with sweetened cream cheese, a drizzle of maple syrup and toasted pecans. For a sweet wake-up on Valentine's Day, make them heart shaped.
