Celebrate the Easter holidays with these cute rabbit pancakes – a fun and healthy breakfast treat for the children. Encourage your little ones to get involved in the mixing and decorating part!
Ready in 45 minutes
100g self-raising flour
2 small eggs, separated
oil, for frying
chocolate chips or raisins for bunny paws, to serve
30g banana, sliced into rounds for the tails
extra chopped fruit or Easter chocolate treats, to serve
Put the flour into a large bowl and whisk to break up any lumps. Add the egg yolks and a little of the milk and whisk to make a thick paste. Add the remaining milk, a splash at a time, to loosen the batter.
In a separate bowl and using a clean whisk, whisk the egg whites until they hold stiff peaks. Gently fold the egg whites into the batter with a spatula, trying to keep in as much air as possible.
Heat a large non-stick pan over a medium heat and add a drop of oil. Using a large spoon, add a generous spoonful of batter to the pan in a circle shape, for the bunny body. Add a smaller round for the head, two small ovals for feet, and two long thin strips for ears. Fit all the bunny components into the pan or cook them in batches.
Flip the pancakes after a minute or two, once the edges are set, the base is golden brown, and bubbles start to pop on the surface. Cook for another minute until golden brown.
Position the pancakes into a bunny shape shown in the image provided. Add a banana slice for the tail and chocolate chips or raisins for the feet pads.
Repeat with the remaining batter. Decorate with extra chopped fruit or Easter chocolate treats if you like.
