Prominently Popular Pancake Cereal
Why choose between cereal and pancakes when you can have both?
Attention, brunch-goers, TikTok fanatics, and amateur chefs alike: there's a new recipe taking over the internet, and it's an absolute must for your weekend plans. Meet pancake cereal. Although it may sound like the latest release from Kellogg's, it's simply a Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Brunch version of the breakfast staple. Videos of the drool-worthy yet adorable meal have been popping up across TikTok for the last few weeks, and now that it's really sweeping over social media, we have no idea how we didn't think of it earlier. It's so easy to make!
While being forced to stay inside for long stretches of time hasn’t exactly been fun for many people, the past few weeks have demonstrated that there's an endless amount of creativity happening in the kitchen these days.
Many of us are looking for ways to stay busy and entertained while being stuck at home. And what better way to spend your time than experimenting in the kitchen! This time spent at home has struck many viral trends from boozy drinks to delicious treats we thought we had seen it all! Until now that is. The newest cooking trend is called pancake cereal. Now, if you’re asking yourself what the heck is pancake cereal? It’s essentially adorable tiny little flapjacks served in a bowl with milk, maple syrup, and butter!
No, this isn't a new boxed cereal that tastes like pancakes. Pancake cereal is made by cooking up a batch of teeny, tiny pancakes that are served in a bowl, then topped with any number of ingredients, like butter, maple syrup, fruit, chocolate chips and even milk.
The basic recipe is pretty straightforward and not that different from how one makes regular pancakes. Instead of pouring batter into a skillet free-hand, you’ll need to use some sort of squeeze bottle, syringe or plastic bag with the corner cut off.
Beyond saving lives, if there’s one positive thing to be said about self-quarantining, it’s that staying indoors has sparked a lot of creativity. Once upon a time, it might have seemed like too much work to make tiny pancakes. Now, it’s a fun breakfast project.
1. 1/2 cup all purpose flour
2. 1 tbsp sugar
3. 1/2 tsp baking powder
4. 1/2 tsp baking soday
5. 1/2 cup buttermilk you can use milk too
6. 1.5 tbsp whisked egg
7. 2 tbsp. oil for the pan
1. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar. Add the whisked egg and buttermilk to the bowl, gently combine with a fork, being careful not to over mix, but mixing out all the large lumps.
2. Pour the pancake batter into a squeeze bottle or ziplock bag with a tiny corner cut off. Or you can use a teaspoon to scoop it out.
3. Heat up a non-stick pan over over medium-low heat. Brush a thin layer of oil on your pan. Squeeze out mini pancake (or drop the batter by the teaspoon) and cook until the pancakes start to bubble. When you flip them, they should be golden brown. Continue cooking for another 30 seconds or 1 minute, or until golden brown. Scoop the pancakes out into a bowl.
4. Serve with a pat of butter and drizzle with syrup! Milk optional :)
