bunny pancakes 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!

Equipment Needed:

Large mixing bowl • Electric mixer • Two condiment squirt bottles • Paper towels • Spatula • Spoon • Electric griddle

Ingredients:

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®

Directions:

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. Step 1

Using the white batter, draw the inside lines of the “ears” and the round “mouth.” Step 2 225°F) and let the outlines cook until puffed up. The outlines will keep remaining batter in. Step 3  

Except for space inside the white outlines, fill the “bunny” with the pink batter within the pink lines.

Step 5

Use white batter to fill the 3 white outlines. Step 6 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!
