I have been making bunny pancakes for Easter breakfast for years! I love making holidays a little more special by having a themed meal that everyone can enjoy together. These bunny pancakes get your Easter morning started with a smile.
I won’t pretend I made this batter from scratch. We can’t be Martha all the time and (healthy reminder here) that doesn’t mean you’re failing as a mother either. Haven’t we all fallen into that at some point and thought because we “skipped” a step we weren’t good enough?
I love Kodiak Cakes and may never make a homemade pancake mix ever again. They’re all natural, non-GMO and packed full of protein. You can just add water but I prefer the taste and texture with cashew milk and eggs. Whisk them fast until the large clumps are gone but texture is not perfectly smooth. I buy the bulk box from Costco but you can also find them here on Amazon.
Using a condiment bottle is the secret to a perfectly shaped bunny. I buy mine in pack of 3 from my local dollar store and (surprise) it’s actually meant for mayo.
Make a circle in the middle of the pan and then fill it in with the pancake mix. It’s that easy, the more you practice the better you get. Using the bottle gives you full control of the shape you’re creating but be careful because your pancakes will slightly expand with the heat.
If you’re struggling with the shape of your body, head or feet – grab some scissors and cut the finished pancake into the shape you were attempting. You’re also not wasting any “mistake” pieces and saving previous batter.
We love to take it a step further and make carrot utensils. For a big family brunch, it saves us time on dishes and they are so simple to create. We bought the utensils at (of course) the dollar store. Place the fork and knife in one of the corners of the napkin and roll until they are snug. We used pipe cleaners to bind them together and cut the tops off a little to give it more of a stem look.
Hoppy Easter Everyone!
