My mom used to make me shaped pancakes on a Sunday morning, and let me tell you, it certainly makes you more interested in eating your breakfast. Here’s how I made these bunny ones for the kids on Easter.
Similar to my cinnamon vanilla waffle recipe, this one for pancakes is just as popular with my kids. Especially when you form them into fun shapes to eat.
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1-1/2 cups whole milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
In a bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cinnamon. Make a well and add the eggs, milk and vanilla.
Mix all the ingredients together until just combined. If you need more milk, add by the Tablespoonful. You still want to be able to shape them.
Heat a pan over medium high heat, add a little butter to melt. To make the bunny – use a large Tablespoonful of batter and start with the head – making a nice oval shape.
Then use half the Tablespoon and pull up one ear.
Then the other. Once you know the pancake is ready to flip – gently turn it over and you should have a nice little bunny head.
I used small pink heart quinns for the nose and black POKER quinns for the eyes.
You can make any shape, but bunnies are easy and fun! Great for Easter but it’s a nice little treat to see on your breakfast table any day of the year!
