Easter Breakfast: Bunny Butt Pancakes

If you’re looking for an easy Easter morning breakfast, look no further.  These Bunny Butt Pancakes, are easy to make, and your kiddos are going to LOVE them.  Easter morning can be hectic, with baskets, and other family traditions, which is why this recipe is so great!  The pancakes can be prepared ahead of time, and then just reheated for a really quick breakfast, and best of all, the kids can help make it!

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed or not, but I am having A LOT of fun this year, creating recipes for Easter!  Most of the recipes that I have been sharing have been so easy that kids can make them by themselves, and if you’re comfortable with your kiddos using the stove, they can make these Buttermilk Pancakes no problem!

Making Bunny Butt Pancakes is really simple, and you don’t have to be super artistic or even really ‘cheffy’ to make them.  I have included my favorite recipe for Buttermilk Pancakes below if you want to try a homemade version.  It is the recipe that I have been using for years, and share every month in my Meal Plans.  It doubles or triples really well, and the pancakes freeze and reheat perfectly every time.  When I make these pancakes I usually make about 100 at a time, and freeze them to reheat during the week for easy breakfasts.

How To Make Bunny Butt Pancakes

Make Buttermilk
In a one cup glass measuring cup, add 1 tbsp lemon juice or vinegar.  Fill to the 1 cup line with milk, and stir.  Let sit 5 minutes.

Make Pancake Batter & Prepare Decorations
Prepare pancake batter according to the recipe directions below, or the directions on the back of the box.  Homemade pancake batter needs to rest 5-10 minutes.  While it is resting, slice bananas for the bunny paws and whip cream for whipped cream.

Make Pancakes 
For each Bunny Butt Pancake you are going to serve, make 1 large round pancake for the body/butt and two small round pancakes for the feet.

Assemble Pancakes 
To assemble, place large pancake in the center of a plate, and place the two smaller pancakes on the bottom for feet.  Make a large dollop of whipped cream for the tail, and top it with shredded coconut, if if wish.  For each foot, place a slice of banana (or strawberry) and three M&M’s (or chocolate chips, raisins or blueberries) to make paws.

Serve & Enjoy
Watch your kids faces light up at how cute their Bunny Butt Pancakes are on Easter morning!
