Here comes Peter Cottontail! It just wouldn’t be a holiday for us without some sort of fun pancakes. We had Leprechaun pancakes for St Patrick’s Day, Groundhog pancakes for Groundhogs day, Cupid’s arrow for Valentine’s day, Santa pancakes for Christmas and even “Man”cakes for Father’s Day. So, naturally we would have to have an Easter Bunny pancake for Easter. Right?
As, with most of my pancake ideas, these are pretty self-explanatory from looking at the picture. I’ve decided you can make almost any type of object with pancakes, bananas, marshmallows and chocolate chips. Really, you should try it.
How to Make an Easter Bunny Pancake
First make large round/oval pancakes, depending on the shape you want your bunny’s face. I made some of both. You will also need to make some medium sized round pancakes to cut into the bunny ears and bow tie like I did here. (I discovered that pancakes are kind of hard to cut without falling apart but this worked out okay.) And you also need some tiny pancakes for the cheeks.
The assembling was easy, peasy. Just add banana slices for the eyes, with chocolate chips for the eye balls, nose and bow tie. I used my mini pancakes for the cheeks and then cut a mini-marshmallow in half and made teeth. I crisped up some bacon and cut into strips for the whiskers and I ended up with an Easter bunny good enough to eat.
My boys are getting way too excited for the Easter bunny to visit and we have a fun weekend with family planned, including the yearly Easter Egg hunt at grandma’s house. And the best part is that the weather is supposed to be perfect!
Do you have any big plans for the Easter weekend? I plan on eating lots of Cadbury Mini Eggs. Oh wait, I’ve been doing that for weeks now. ;) If you could have any Easter treat of your choice what would it be? Cadbury mini-eggs all the way!
