What is Pancake Cereal?
The first question we need to answer is, “What is pancake cereal?”
Pancake cereal is much more than a boxed cereal that tastes like pancakes. As we mentioned, to make pancake cereal, you need to make teeny, tiny pancakes. You can make miniature pancakes by pouring batter into a hot skillet using a syringe, squeeze bottle, or plastic bag.
While topping pancake cereal with milk is the traditional route, people also like to top it with fresh strawberries, maple syrup, and even whipped cream.
Tips for Making Pancake Cereal
Making pancake cereal first starts with choosing the right pancake batter. While you can always used boxed pancake batter to keep things simple, making a homemade pancake batter is also an option.
Just like flipping regular pancakes can be difficult, so too can it be tough to flip mini pancakes. Many find that using a very small spatula makes it easier to flip the mini pancakes. Additionally, it can be helpful to cook the pancakes in two pans instead of one. This way, each tiny pancake will have plenty of room to cook. Also, be mindful when flipping them mini pancakes over. While it can be tempting to flip all of the cakes over in one go, this can cause them to stick together.
