Bear/ Bunny Pancakes

Oh this is fun – cute and adorable bear “butt” pancakes!  Do these just to put a smile on some faces at breakfast. You could also make these for Easter and call them bunny butt pancakes.

How to Do It:

Just use your fave pancake recipe or mix to make the pancake batter.  Don’t have a “from scratch” pancake recipe?  Use the “Good Old Fashioned Pancakes” recipe further below – it’s a well-loved, long-time favorite recipe and, better yet,  its easy!  You’ll get awesome pancakes every time.

Create a regular round pancake for the “butt” and create two elongated oval pancakes for those cute little feet.

Place 3 raisins on each paw for “toes”, and a flat slice of strawberry to emulate those cute little pink pads on the bottoms of paws.

A dab of whipping cream makes a perfect puffy tale.

Then watch for big smiles.  So, so SO kewuuuute!
