Three-Ingredient Banana Pancakes
Who doesn’t like pancakes? Good Housekeeping has a great recipe for cute, easy and delicious pancakes that you can make to look like a bunny. All you need it two very ripe large bananas, three large eggs and 3/4 of a cup of self-rising flour. For garnish, you will need whipped cream for the tail, mini chocolate chips (or blueberries) for the feet and banana slices for the feet.
First puree the bananas. Then incorporate the eggs and blend them. Lastly, puree the flour. Heat your griddle on medium heat and grease it. Drop the batter and cook it for two to three minutes, or until it lightly starts to bubble. Then flip it over and cook for one to two minutes more.
To make the bunny, use a 1/4 cup of batter for body. Use two tablespoons of batter for the head. To make the ears, use one tablespoon of batter each and make it resemble a long bunny ear. For the feet, use one tablespoon of batter each and make them in the shape of an oval. When you’re done, arrange it on and the plate and garnish.
