How to make Fluffy Bunny Butt Pancakes
This section shows you how to make the recipe with step-by-step photos and instructions. For the full printable recipe, see the recipe card below.
Step 1: In a pan or griddle, cook 3 pancakes: one larger circle and two small circles or oval shapes.
Step 2: Transfer the large pancake to a flat plate- this is the bunny’s body. Add the small pancakes to the bottom of the large pancake to create the bunny’s feet.
Step 3: Place a large sliced strawberry on each of the smaller pancakes to make the pads of the feet. Add 3 blueberries underneath each as toes.
Step 4: Add a dollop of whipped cream to the center of the large pancake.
Serve the finished pancakes with maple syrup, if desired.
Store leftover pancakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.
For longer storage, pancakes can be frozen for up to two months.
Once decorated, these Easter pancakes are best enjoyed immediately.
Additions and variations
- Swap the blueberries for chocolate chips or mini marshmallows for a sweet treat.
- Use banana slices instead of strawberry slices on the bunny’s feet.
- Add another smaller pancake on top to make a bunny head. You can even use halved bananas or bacon to create bunny ears!
Expert tips & tricks
Heat up your pan. When making pancakes it is best to heat the pan over medium heat for a minute or two before adding your pancake batter.
Use two of the same size strawberry slices. To make the pads of the bunny’s feet match try to use two of the same size strawberry slices. I find this is easiest if you slice up two of the same size strawberries.
Serve on a flat plate. For the best presentation serve your Easter bunny pancakes on a flat plate.
I hope that you enjoy this fun Easter breakfast and that you and your family have a very happy Easter!
