Easter Bunny pikelets

Easter Bunny pikelets


10 pikelets or 5 åÔbunniesåÕ


  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup (150g) self-raising flour
  • 1 cup (250ml) buttermilk (or milk with a squeeze of lemon)
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar (optional)
  • zest of one orange
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil

To decorate:

  • honey-flavoured yoghurt
  • blueberries
  • one orange (segmented)


To make the pikelet batter, combine all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and whisk until smooth. Set aside for half an hour. 

Heat a little of the vegetable oil in a large non-stick saucepan and cook tablespoon-sized dollops of the batter at a time. 

To serve, place one pikelet in the centre of a plate, cut another in half and arrange the halves as ears (see photo). Decorate with the yoghurt, blueberries and orange segments.

Serving Suggestions


  • You can decorate these little bunnies with pretty much any fresh fruit or even sweets. Grapes also make good ‘eyes’. Another option is to make large pikelets and then use a bunny-shaped biscuit cutter to make fun Easter-shaped treats.
  • Swap the orange rind with a little cinnamon or other sweet spice.
