Flour – Here, we are making these pancakes the old fashioned way, and thus here we will use all-purpose flour. You can even use other flour for other healthy alternatives.
Baking Powder and Soda – The addition of both these ingredients, make the Pancakes fluffy and soft. Baking powders helps the pancake batter to activate, which results in a fluffy Pancake texture.
Milk – Milk is added to give a proper consistency to the batter. Here, I have used dairy milk, but if you want a vegan option, you can use almond milk, soy milk, or even coconut milk.
Eggs – Egg helps to create those tiny bubbles in the pancakes and also makes it rise. It also adds richness and flavor to the pancakes.
Butter – When melted butter is added in the pancakes, it gives the pancakes a rich taste along with making them moist.
Vanilla Extract – For an added hint of vanilla, add a little vanilla extract. Make sure you use a good quality vanilla extract for the best flavor.
Others – Apart from this, we will need salt and pepper in the pancake batter.

Frequently Asked Questions
To make these Old fashioned Cereal Pancakes vegan, you can substitute dairy milk with almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, or even any plant-based milk.
Also in place of butter, you can use vegetable oil, even that works amazingly in this recipe. When it comes to egg, you can use apple sauce, ground flax seeds, etc.
Let me tell you, the addition of these substitutes might change the taste and texture of the pancakes.
I have used Tomato Ketchup filler to make these Cereal Pancakes. using it gives you perfect tiny round pancakes. You can even drop tiny portions of batter using a spoon on the greased pan, but the shape might not be so accurate in that case.
You can even use a frosting cone, to make these Cereal Pancakes.
I would not suggest you prepare the pancakes and store. Instead, you can store the Pancake Batter for about 2 to 4 days in the fridge, in an airtight container.
Take it out a few minutes before from the fridge and let it come to room temperature, mix it well, and then prepare the Cereal Pancakes.
I served it with just plain butter and maple syrup for myself. A sprinkling of colorful 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 freshly 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!
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.
