Pro Tips by Neha
Make sure you cook it on low to medium heat, as it tends to cook very fast and might get burnt on very high heat.
Squeeze them smaller than you think, as they will spread on the pan.
Also, the consistency of the batter is very important here.
If its too thin, the pancakes will get mix with each other and if its too thick, it won’t come out of the squeeze bottle or the ziplock bag.
As they are tiny, they won’t be warm once you finish making them all. So pre heat them for a few seconds in the microwave before serving.
I served it with just plain butter and maple syrup for myself.
A sprinkling of colourful sprinkles added a lovely crunch to mine too.
But as they are pancake cereals, you can also have it like the usual cereals, that is with milk.
As mangoes are in season, my son topped it with fresh chopped mangoes and it just tastes heavenly.
You can use any other fruit such as strawberries, banana, kiwi, papaya, cantaloupe etc and drizzle some honey on top.
You can also top it with nutella, chocolate syrups, fruit compotes and jams etc!
