How to Make Them

This is such a special Easter breakfast for little fingers because it’s easy to eat and fun to look at. Making pancakes at home is such a wonderful family tradition. Have fun with it!

To get started with the pancakes, add the dry flour, baking powder, and sugar to a large bowl and thoroughly combine.

Mix the milk, butter, egg, and vanilla extract with the dry mix until well combined.

mix together pancake batter

Then, bring a nonstick skillet or frying pan to medium heat on the stovetop.

Spray a thin layer of non-stick cooking spray and add 1⁄4 cup of batter into the pan. As pancakes cook, wait until the top side starts to bubble, then flip.

Let the pancake continue cooking for about 1 minute or until golden on the bottom.

Once cooked, transfer to a plate.

To build the bunny, start by cutting a banana in half crosswise.

Then take one of the halves and cut it into thirds lengthwise.

Use the two outer pieces as the bunny ears, facing each ear up on a plate.

Layer the pancake over the bottoms of the ears ands cut one additional banana slice into a circle and place onto the pancake for the nose.

Add the blueberries to the bunny face and to the middle of the bowtie.

Fill a plastic baggie with hazelnut spread and cut a small hole at the tip. Pipe a small mouth onto the banana slice. You can also use a bit of the chocolate spread to adhere the blueberry eyes and banana nose.
