Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 6 minutes per pancake
What You’ll Need:
- Large mixing bowl
- Electric mixer
- Two condiment squirt bottles
- Paper towels
- Electric griddle
2 cups plus 3 Tablespoons Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix
1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
1 ½ cups water
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Red food coloring
Pam Cooking Spray
12 chocolate chips
6 red M&M’S®
- In a large mixing bowl, stir the pancake mix and sugar together with a spoon. Add the water and vanilla extract and stir. Beat the batter with an electric mixer until well blended without many lumps. You may need to add a little more pancake mix (1 tablespoon at a time) depending on the consistency. You want the batter thick enough to “draw with but not so thick that it won’t squeeze out of the squirt bottle.
- Pour the batter slowly into one of the condiment squirt bottles until it’s about 2/3 full. This will be your white color.
- Color the remaining batter pink using red food coloring (add 1-2 drops at a time).
- Pour the pink batter slowly into the other squirt bottle. Clean up any drips.
- Spray your griddle with cooking spray but do NOT turn it on yet.
To Create a Bunny:
- Draw the outline of a circle with the pink batter.
- Draw two arched lines for the bunny “ears with the pink batter.
- Using the white batter, draw the inside lines of the “ears and the round “mouth.
- Turn your griddle to the lowest setting (between 200-225°F) and let the outlines cook until puffed up. The outlines will keep remaining batter in.
- Except for space inside the white outlines, fill the “bunny with the pink batter within the pink lines.
- Use white batter to fill the 3 white outlines. Wait to flip the “bunny until the batter is bubbly and loses most of its shine.
- Place two chocolate chip “eyes and 1 red M&M’S® for the “nose. Or have fun and try using raisins or other candies!
These pancakes make the ultimate spring breakfast and are perfect for a whimsical tea party.
