Bunny Pancakes Tips
How can you tell when Bunny Pancakes are ready to flip?
You’ll know when the pancakes are ready to flip when little bubbles start to form on top of the pancakes. After you flip them, take a peek at the bottoms as they cook. Take them off the griddle once they're golden brown.
How can you make sure Bunny Pancakes are fluffy?
Fluffy pancakes are the best pancakes! To make sure your bunny pancakes are as fluffy as possible, avoid overmixing the batter once you've combine all of the ingredients; overmixing causes pancakes to be tough and chewy. If you’re not in a rush to get breakfast on the table, let the batter rest for a bit before scooping it onto the hot griddle; this allows the proteins to relax before cooking.

How can you make Bunny Pancakes your own?
There are lots of different ways you can customize these pancakes, but no matter how you choose to do it, using a squeeze bottle filled with pancake batter is a great way to get perfectly shaped pancakes. To make pretty pastel pancakes, consider adding a few drops of food coloring. Or if you prefer your bunnies polka-dotted, mix in some blueberries or mini chocolate chips. To give the fluffy tail a little color, toast the sweetened shredded coconut before sprinkling it on top of the whipped cream. To fit some more fruit into this breakfast, replace the pancake bunny ears with banana halves that have been sliced lengthwise. Take the cuteness factor over the top by serving them with some strawberry hearts. Look for berries that have rounded tops and pointed bottoms, then use the tip of a sharp paring knife to cut out their leaves and cores. Slice in half and plate!
