Who wouldn’t love pancakes in the shape of a bunny? Very cute.
If you have time to make bunny pancakes on Easter morning (I wouldn’t) these would be really cute. If you are having a brunch later in the day these could work. As busy as Easter day is, I’d make these sometime around Easter, but not that day. Or you could make them ahead of time & reheat. Be very careful when turning these pancakes over to make sure the ears don’t rip off. Make the place where the ears attach to the head a little bit wide to help with this.
These pancakes are tinted pink with food coloring and squirted onto the griddle with the kind of squeeze bottles used for catsup and mustard. They are cute, but take a little bit of care.
I’m thinking I’d like to make these a simpler way with just a large spoon. It would be pretty easy to spread the batter on the griddle in the shape of a rabbit. I wouldn’t necessrily tint the batter. I could see spreading some fruity yogurt on the finished pancake. You could use strawberry or blueberry yogurt for some Easter colors. How about adding some pineaapple tibits for whiskers and a piece of strawberry for the nose? Blueberries (or raisins) can be used for the eyes & are available in frozen foods this time of year. That way it’s more fruit than candy as shown in the link. Yogurt adds more protein to this breakfast. Use any pancake recipe for this. Click on the label “pancakes” below this post for recipes
BUNNY EARS UPDATE: I just had an idea. How about making just bunny ears? The kids could use them as dippers in yogurt or syrup. For adults “frost” them with pink yogurt. They would fit on a brunch plate with other items. And you could make the ears ahead of time, freeze them in a single layer & after frozen in a plastic bag. Then reheat them in a single layer in the microwave. Easy & fun!
These would be great for Easter or anytime you want to give your kids a treat. I bet your kids will remember these!
