'Pancake Cereal' Is the Best Food Trend to Come Out of Quarantine

TikTok and Instagram users strike again with yet another easy and delicious recipe.

First, TikTok introduced us to whipped coffee, now both TikTok and Instagram users are showing us that pancake cereal is the next big food trend to emerge during the quarantine.

That's right, pancake cereal. It's really not as crazy as it sounds if you think about it. As kids, we used to eat cereal that was shaped like miniature toasts (Cinnamon Toast Crunch) and waffles (Eggo Cereal). So, why not try and shrink down some flapjacks and make them into a bite-size cereal, too?

Pancake cereal is surprisingly very easy to make, too. Take @thenaughtyfork's tutorial as an example.

All you have to do is put the pancake batter into a piping bag and squirt little dollops of it onto the skillet. Then, just as you would with normal size pancakes, flip them once the tops start to form little holes. Next, put a tablespoon of butter into the pan and coat the mini pancakes in them until they achieve that desired golden brown color.

Now, here comes the creative part, you could drown the mini, fluffy pancake bits in milk, however, that's not what the cool kids are doing. It's best to drizzle the little pancakes with the breakfast food's number one pairing: maple syrup.

Food blogger @veggiekins has even concocted the perfect gluten-free and vegan pancake cereal recipe made with chickpea flour and without dairy.

And if you're feeling really crazy, you can put sprinkles in them just as @soflofooodie did.
