Red Velvet Pancakes with Cream Cheese Topping

So, my roommate starts her new job tomorrow and, to celebrate, we've been cooking together most of the weekend.  On Friday night we made the most amazing mac & cheese (which I will post about as soon as she sends me the photos & the link to the recipe).  But, on Friday we decided to make some sort of fun breakfast on Sunday morning.  I came across this one when I was doing my meal planning yesterday morning.

These are as delicious as they sound!  However, the cream cheese topping was a little too sweet for our liking.  We're thinking that it was the honey.  We suggest trying it without it if you decide to make this.
