13 of 30: Making pink pancakes

We tried out a new recipe today with these ultra pink pancakes. The girls totally dug them but Mark nor I were the fans we had hoped to be. Here's how you make 'em:

Blend together:
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup ricotta cheese 1/4 cup beet puree (thus the color)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon

dump into bowl and add in:
1 cup pancake mix (I make my own with flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt)
1/4 cup grated apple (don't grate your knuckles... it hurts. Ask me how I know!)

Mix until joined but still lumpy and cook as you'd cook any other pancake.
