How To Make Animal-Shaped Pancakes

by / ⠀Breakfast How-tos Recipes / June 21, 2013

As if there wasn’t enough reason to love fresh berries and home-cooked pancakes! We’ve formed them into little bears (or cats!) so they’re even more fun to eat.


Makes: 8 pancakes

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 5 minutes (per pancake)


  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1-1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries


1. In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Whisk in milk, egg and melted butter. 

2. Pre-heat griddle or non-stick pan. Scoop a small amount of pancake mix (about 3 tablespoons) in the middle of the griddle to form a circle. Cook until bubbles start to form, about 2-3 minutes. Carefully, flip pancake to the other side and cook until lightly brown, about 2 minutes.

To assemble the pancake bear:

  • For the bear’s head: use a round pancake 
  • For the ears and body: slice the strawberries into thirds, and use the middle section for the ears and body.
  • For the tail: slice a sliver of a rounded edge of strawberry.
  • For the eyes: use blueberries, sliced in half.
  • For the legs: use raspberries, sliced in half.
  • For the arms: cut a small piece of pancake to create an arm shape.
