Bunny Pancakes for Easter Morning Breakfast Is a Great Idea

Easter is just around the corner! If you haven't started planning your menu for the occasion, I'm sure you'll be doing so soon.  Bunnies are everywhere and I've been noticing all the fabulous chocolate eggs and Easter treats that are in the grocery store too!

If you're looking for a fun twist on a traditional pancake breakfast to signify Easter, I have a unique recipe the whole family will love.  It's always fun to get into the holiday spirit no matter which one it is!
I'm up for pancakes any time of day, especially if they include add-in's like chocolate chips or blueberries. Pour some heated syrup over the top of those golden brown circles of heaven and you've got yourself quite a meal.  There's nothing like making Fluffy Bunny Pancakes on Easter morning! 

*Recipe taken from Taste of Home

If you don't have a lot of time, feel free to use a pancake mix instead of a homemade recipe.  

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup butter, melted 

Banana slices, mini chocolate chips, whipped cream and sweetened shredded coconut.


1. Preheat griddle over medium-high heat.  Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Combine egg, milk and melted butter; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.

2.  For each funny, make a pancake 4 inches wide for the body, a pancake 2-1/2 inches wide for the head, two small oval shaped pancakes for the feet, and two small triangular pancakes for the ears.  Spoon batter onto griddle; cook until bubbles form on top of pancakes.  Turn; cook until second side is golden brown.

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 mini chocolate chips at the end of each foot for toes.  Dollop whipped cream on body just above the feet, sprinkle with coconut for the tail.  Serve immediately.  

These bunnies will make anyone smile no matter their age! Enjoy.
