Tools and Equipment
How to Make Easter Bunny Pancakes – Step by Step
- Step 1: Preheat a griddle or skillet over medium high heat. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Combine egg, vanilla extract and milk; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
- Step 2: For each bunny: Pour batter into a griddle, making a pancake about 5 inches wide for the body, a pancake about 3 inches wide for the head, two small oval-shaped pancakes for the feet and two small longer pancakes for the ears. Work with each pancake at a time. Cook each until bubbles form on top of pancakes. Turn; cook until second side is golden brown.
- Step 3: To form bunny, place ears at the top of a plate. Place head slightly overlapping the bottom of the ears; top with body slightly overlapping head and feet slightly overlapping body. Place a banana slice on each foot; arrange fresh blueberries at the end of each foot to form the bunny’s toes. Add another slice of banana on body just above the feet to form the bunny’s tail.
- Serve immediately and enjoy!
