Since we’ve all been staying at home and finding different ways to occupy our time, TikTok has prevailed in showing us interesting ways to get creative in the kitchen. Last month Dalgona Coffee, a fluffy cloud of whipped instant coffee over almond milk, was all the rage! This time around, “pancake cereal” is the new craze. 

No one is quite sure how this phenomenon started, but Pancake cereal has over 750 million tags on TikTok. And honestly, I can see why! Not only are these mini pancakes SUPER adorable, but they are also very easy to make and taste incredible.

So I decided to make mini pancakes, inspired by my Apple Cinnamon Pancakes recipe!

How to Make Mini Pancake Cereal

Tips for Making Mini Pancake Cereal

  • Mix the batter in a separate bowl and then pour the mixture into a pastry bag, or ziploc bag and cut a small opening on the corner. This makes it easier to pour into the pan.
  • Because they are so small, you only need to cook the mini pancakes on each side for about a minute. 
  • Use a small spatula or even chopsticks to flip the mini pancakes.

What to Eat with Mini Pancake Cereal

Although technically this is “pancake cereal”, I wouldn’t recommend drowning this in milk— it makes the pancakes soggy and unenjoyable. Instead, load them up with your favorite fresh fruit and maple syrup.

Mini Pancake Topping Ideas:

  • Fresh blackberries
  • Fresh strawberries
  • Almond butter
  • Maple syrup
  • Chocolate chips
  • Whipped Cream
  • Yogurt

How do you store mini pancakes?

I had a bunch leftover so I put them in an airtight container and placed them in the fridge. My boyfriend enjoyed them the next day with milk. He said they actually held up very well to the milk the next day because the mini pancakes were firmer and cold, which helped prevent them from getting soggy. So, if you want to enjoy the mini pancake cereal throughout the week in its true “cereal” form, I highly recommend putting them in the fridge!
