Bunny Pancake Tutorial

These bunny pancakes are perfect for spring and are super fun for your kids!

Bunny Pancake Tutorial 1


This recipe makes about three bunny pancakes depending on the size that you make them. The bunnies in the photo are sized around 4”x5 ½.


  • Griddle or large skillet
  • Pam Cooking Spray
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Water
  • Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix (the just add water mix)
  • Two Condiment Squirt Bottles (can be found at Walmart)
  • Red Food Coloring
  • Candy (chocolate chips, red M&Ms)


Get out your large bowl and mix with a spoon 1 cup plus 1-2 Tablespoons of pancake batter with ¾ cup of water. You want your batter thick enough to “draw” with but not too much where it wont squeeze out of the squirt bottle. Grab your electric mixer and stir until it’s well blended. If you have too many lumps, they will clog up your squirt bottle. Pour 1/3 cup of batter slowly into one of the condiment squirt bottles. This will be your white color. Put 7 drops of red food coloring into the remaining batter (there should be about 2/3 cup left) and stir with a spoon until the batter is pink.

Pour the pink batter slowly into the other squirt bottle. Make sure and have paper towels handy to clean up any drips.

Next, spray your griddle with cooking spray but do not turn it on yet.

Step One: Draw a circle with the pink batter.

Step Two: Draw bunny ears with the pink batter.

Step Three: Using the white batter, draw the inside of the ears and the mouth area.

Step Four: Turn on your griddle to the lowest setting (between 200-225 degrees) and let the outlines cook. Wait until they seemed puffed up before continuing. These cooked outlines keep the batter from spreading out so that the shape stays in place.

Step Five: Fill in the bunny with the pink batter as shown in the photo.

Step Six: Using the white batter now, fill in the remaining outlines as shown in the photo. Wait to flip the bunny until the batter is bubbly and looks mostly cooked.

Decorate your bunny pancakes with chocolate chip eyes and M&M’s for little noses. You can let your kids have fun with this part. They might even want to try different candy colors for noses or raisins for eyes.

Happy Bunny Pancake Making! -Jenni

    I will have to show this to my hubby. He makes the pancakes, lest they be inedible.

    Cuteness! I love making themed pancakes for the holidays. A bunny is much better than just an egg for Easter! Thx!

    Oh..these are super cute. Thanks so much for sharing. Looks like I’ll be getting up extra early on Easter morning to make these.

    These are darling! I would use fruit instead of candy, for a healthier breakfast. Blue berries would be perfect. You could also use a the small end of a melon baller to scoop out other fruits.
