Easter morning, before the little ones begin nibbling chocolate bunny ears, heat up a griddle for pancakes made with an assist from a trio of Easter mini pancake molds.
Nonstick steel molds shaped like a bunny, chick and Easter egg are easy to use, clean and store (handles fold down for storage).
They worked well when we tried them, but be careful not to overfill (the batter puffs up some) and use a hot pad if the handles get too warm. The set is $14.95. To buy, go to williams-sonoma.com.
