Fluffy Bunny Pancakes

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 15 min.


2 bunnies

Kids will love that it's as tasty as it is cute. If you're in a rush, you can substitute pancake mix so you can hightail it out of the kitchen in no time.—Shannon Roum, Milwaukee, Wisconsin


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • Banana slices, miniature semisweet chocolate chips, whipped cream and sweetened shredded coconut


  1. Preheat griddle over medium-high heat. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Combine egg, milk and melted butter; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  2. For each bunny, make a pancake 4 in. wide for the body, a pancake 2-1/2 in. wide for the head, two small oval-shaped pancakes for the feet and two small triangular pancakes for the ears. Spoon batter onto griddle; cook until bubbles form on top of pancakes. Turn; cook until second side is golden brown.
  3. To form bunny, place ears at the top of a plate. Place head slightly overlapping the bottom of the ears; top with body slightly overlapping head and feet slightly overlapping body. Place a banana slice on each foot; arrange mini chocolate chips at the end of each foot for toes. Dollop whipped cream on body just above the feet; sprinkle with coconut for the tail. Serve immediately.
Test Kitchen Tip: A squeeze bottle filled with pancake batter is the perfect thing for getting just the right shapes. It's also a great way for little helpers to get creative.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Have fun with these bunnies! Mix blueberries or mini chocolate chips into the batter for polka dots, or toast the coconut for a suntanned tail.
  • Hop into fall by adding 1/4 cup canned pumpkin and 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice to your batter.
  • Up the cuteness factor with a few 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 enjoy!
