In February, I set up a Valentine’s day breakfast celebration for our family in the studio and made pancakes in the shape of x’s and o’s. My kids went nuts.

So I’m keeping a good thing going for Easter! Apparently I’m pretty handy with a holiday pancake.

Who knew?! But I definitely think you should join me and make bunny pancakes for Easter.

Bunny Pancakes for a Family Easter Tradition

I love making a special breakfast for our family on holidays. It’s a fun way to add a little extra memory on an important day.

It also always gets our kids up and at ’em, and excited for the day. (Not that they need much more excitement on Easter!)

We usually let the kids get up and hunt for Easter baskets, then make the pancakes while they’re sorting through their spoils.

More Fun Easter Ideas

While you’re planning your Easter morning traditions (with bunny pancakes, of course!), be sure to check out these other ideas. They’re some of our most popular Easter posts!

Ingredients for Bunny Pancakes

The great thing about these pancakes is that they’ll work with either your favorite scratch recipe, or with your favorite box mix!

To keep it easy on a busy morning, we like to do a box mix like this one. You could also do a protein pancake mix, which is perfect for adding a little boost of protein to a breakfast that naturally has lots of carbs.

Pancake Mix-Ins

Additionally, you could add some fun mix-ins to kick the pancakes up a notch!

Blueberries. Blueberries are a classic pancake mix-in and would be perfect for spring!

Chocolate Chips. These would be excellent in combination with a protein pancake mix, to add a little sweetness.

Sprinkles. Kids especially love adding sprinkles to pancakes! It makes them feel extra special and celebratory (and gives a “funfetti” vibe).

Garnish. If you or your children don’t like mix-ins, try adding additional fruit as a garnish or design around their plates. I garnished ours with some fresh fruit and the kids just thought it was the fanciest thing.

The Best pancake Batter Dispenser for Shaped Pancakes

If you really love the idea of bunny pancakes or other fun shapes, it may be a good idea to invest in a batter dispenser like this one. It has an interior blender ball which acts as a whisk, so you can shake the bottle to mix any lumps out of your batter.

Another solution is to use an icing bottle with a detachable tip. A 1/8″ tip or a 1/4″ tip should work well.

We had a simple solution in our home already, and used a condiment bottle which works like a charm!

We have one bottle that we reuse for pancakes. It helps to cut a little extra off of the dispenser tip of the bottle to allow for a good flow of batter.

Recipe and Tricks for Making Bunny Pancakes

I learned a few things with my XO pancakes that helped the bunnies go pretty nicely.

  1. Mix up your favorite pancake batter from scratch or from a box. We don’t judge! But either way, the key is to get out all the lumps. No lumps allowed. I used a whisk and then an immersion blender to really smooth it out.
  2. Fill a condiment bottle with the batter. Be sure there’s a wide enough opening for the batter to squeeze out fairly quickly. We used an 1/8″ tip. If you have a condiment bottle with a smaller tip, you may need to snip a bit off.
  3. Heat up a griddle or pan. I like to cook these on a lower heat because they cook really quickly.
  4. Working quickly, squeeze out a circle and fill it in. Then squeeze two ears that connect to the circle. You have to move swiftly so it all cooks evenly. You’ll probably need to flip it after only 10-20 seconds or so.
  5. Flip the pancake to cook on the other side, remove from heat, and make more bunnies!

Another Fun Family Easter Tradition

Half the fun, of course, is eating them in your jammies. And all of my over-the-top Easter morning dreams came true in the form of these bunny jams.

There’s just something that gives you all the heart eyes to see your little family in matching jams, right down to the baby in a onesie. So. Cute.

These are the Rabbit Rider jammies from Hanna Andersson (and if you’ve never had Hanna jams, they’re realllly comfy — soft and smooth and just so good). They’re from a past season but they always have matching holiday pajamas for the family.
