Nutritional content

Servings: 4 people

Cook time: 20 minutes


Ingredients

100g plain flour

2 eggs

300ml milk

1 tbsp oil

Salt

1 banana, sliced

Grapes, halved

Preparation

  1. To make the pancakes, put the flour, eggs, milk and oil in a large bowl with a pinch of salt. Then, whisk until smooth.

  2. Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and add a little oil.

  3. When it’s warm, add a ladle full of the mixture into the pan - this will be the bunny’s body.

  4. Cook for around 1 minute on each side until it turns golden. Then, take it out of the pan and keep it warm in the oven.

  5. Next, add smaller spoonfuls of the mixture to create the bunny’s head and feet.

  6. Once they’re cooked, place the large pancake in the middle of a plate, with a smaller one at the top for its head, and two smaller ones at the bottom for its feet.

  7. Take your chopped banana and use it to create a tail and ears. Then, add grape halves to create the bunny’s eyes, nose and mouth.
