Nothing says ” Hoppy” Easter like these adorable pancakes! They are a must for your Easter breakfast/ brunch. Regular pancake mix is fine to use or check out our post for “Pinchable Pancake Recipe” on our site. The kids will love them!
Large mixing bowl • Electric mixer • Two condiment squirt bottles • Paper towels • Spatula • Spoon • Electric griddle
2 cups plus 3 Tablespoons Pancake Mix 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (Note: If you are using the Pinchable Pancake recipe, this extra amount of sugar and vanilla are not necessary, unless you are seeking an extra special treat for the holiday occasion.) 1 ½ cups water Red food coloring Cooking Spray 12 chocolate chips 6 red M&M’S®
In a large mixing bowl, stir the pancake mix and sugar together with a spoon. Add the water and vanilla extract and stir. Beat the batter with an electric mixer until well blended without many lumps. You may need to add a little more pancake mix (1 tablespoon at a time) depending on the consistency. You want the batter thick enough to squeeze out of a squirt bottle. Pour the batter slowly into one of the condiment squirt bottles until it’s about 2⁄3 full. This will be your white color. Color the remaining batter pink using red food color- ing (add 1-2 drops at a time). Pour the pink batter slowly into the other squirt bottle. Clean up any drips. Spray your griddle with cooking spray but do NOT turn it on yet. To Create a Bunny: Draw an outline of a circle with the pink batter. Draw two arched lines for the bunny “ears” with the pink batter.
Except for space inside the white outlines, fill the “bunny” with the pink batter within the pink lines.
Use white batter to fill the 3 white outlines. Wait to flip the “bunny” until the batter is bubbly and loses most of its shine. Place 2 chocolate chip “eyes” and 1 red M&M’S® for the “nose.” Or have fun and try using raisins or other candies!
