These Mini Cereal Pancakes are the newest trend on the internet that is going viral. Serve these for breakfast, brunch, or dessert with a scoop of ice cream and or a drizzle of maple syrup, chocolate sauce, or butter.
Add all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar to a large mixing bowl and mix well using a wire whisk.
Add milk, eggs, butter, and vanilla extract to the bowl and stir until combined.
If the batter is too thick, stir in some more milk. You want a thick batter that is easily pourable. If it’s too runny, you won’t get your mini pancakes to keep their shape and if it is too thick, they will not pour easily.
Fill the batter in a squeeze bottle or into a piping bag fitted with a small round tip. You can also use a ziplock bag, just snip a bottom corner at an angle to make a small hole for piping.
Heat a non-stick skillet or a griddle over medium-high heat. Brush it very lightly with butter.
Squeeze tiny rounds of batter all over the skillet. Make sure they’re not touching one another.
Tip – For crispier pancakes, the smaller you pipe them, the better (aim for 8-10mm or ¼-inch diameter). If you like softer and fluffier cereal pancakes, you can pipe 1-inch diameter rounds.
Cover the pan with a lid and let the pancakes cook on medium-low heat until they are browned from the bottom side (1-2 minutes).
If they are cooking too fast from the bottom, reduce the heat to low.
Gather the mini pancakes and transfer them to the serving bowl.
Make all the pancakes in the same manner.
Make sure to heat the pan well once again before pouring the next batch.
Pour some milk and honey over the cereal pancakes. Add chocolate chips, sprinkles, or fresh fruits and serve immediately.
I have used myOld-Fashioned Pancake Batter to prepare the pancake cereal, but you can go ahead and experiment with any pancake batter such as chocolate pancake batter, oats banana batter, ragi batter, etc.Instead of making the batter from scratch, you can also buy pancake mixes to save yourself some time.You can use alternative flours like whole wheat, ragi, or any gluten-free flour for healthy options.To make these cereal pancakes vegan, you can substitute dairy milk with almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, or any plant-based milk. Replace butter with vegetable oil or coconut oil. Eggs can be replaced with apple sauce, ground flax seeds, etc. Keep in consideration that using these substitutes might change the taste and texture of the pancakes.
