Celebrate Easter with these cute bunny pancakes – a fun and creative breakfast for kids.

  1. Place the flour, baking powder and sugar in a bowl. Combine eggs, ricotta, milk, mashed banana and butter in a jug and mix into the flour to make a smooth batter.
  2. Heat a large non-stick pan over a medium heat and carefully wipe it with some oiled kitchen paper. Using a large spoon, add a generous dollop of batter to the pan in a round, 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.
  3. 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 min until golden brown.
  4. Put the bunny body in the middle of the plate, position the head, ears and feet just overlapping form the bunny.
  5. Add a banana slice for feet pads and eyes, sultanas for the feet pads. A strawberry for the bunnies nose, blueberry halves for eyes, spaghetti for whiskers and two small pieces of cheese for the teeth.
  6. Add some extra fruit to the side of the plate.
