How to make perfect Pancake cereal

This mini pancake cereal recipe is made with lots of crispy, mini pancakes! It’s also a great way to pass the time while staying at home and following the current health and safety guidelines.

No, this isn’t a new boxed cereal that tastes like pancakes. Pancake cereal is made by cooking up a batch of teeny, tiny pancakes that are served in a bowl, then topped with any number of ingredients, like butter, maple syrup, fruit, chocolate chips and even milk.

The basic recipe is pretty straightforward and not that different from how one makes regular pancakes. Instead of pouring batter into a skillet free-hand, you’ll need to use some sort of squeeze bottle, syringe or plastic bag with the corner cut off.

Pancake Cereal Storage

Can you save pancake batter?

The pancake batter recipe can be made up to 1 day ahead, and stored in the the fridge until you’re ready to make the pancake cereal.
You make a batch or two, then save the batter in the refrigerator to make pancake cereal another day. Simply cover the pancake batter bowl with a tight layer of plastic wrap and refrigerate.

How long does pancake batter last?

This particular pancake batter recipe lasts for up to 3 days in the fridge.

Can you freeze pancake cereal?

You can simply transfer them to a plate. Once you’ve used up all your batter, transfer the mini pancakes into an airtight container or ziptop bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. The day before you’re planning to serve the mini pancakes, transfer the frozen pancakes to the refrigerator to thaw overnight. Follow the instructions below on how to reheat the pancake cereal.

Some creative ideas for cakes

The next part is a little bit trickier: find something that will squeeze out tiny pancake batter dollops onto your pan.

  • A pastry bag with a small tip.
  • A plastic bag with a small hole cut in the corner.
  • A food-grade squeeze bottle.
  • A rinsed out old ketchup bottle, a mustard bottle, dressing bottle, etc.
  • An empty plastic water bottle with a hole punctured in the top
  • A very small spoon and a very steady hand.

How to reheat pancake cereal

By stovetop: Heat a medium, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, reduce the temperature to medium-low and melt 1 tablespoon of butter. Add the pancakes, using a stiff cooking spatula to occasionally toss them and coat them with butter, until crispy and lightly browned.

By oven: Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a half sheet pan with aluminum foil and place the pancakes in an even layer on top. Pour 1 tablespoon of melted butter over the pancakes and toss until coated. Arrange the pancakes as best as you can in an even layer. Bake for 10 minutes, or until the pancakes are crispy and lightly browned.

How to Make Pancake Cereal

Here are the basic steps to make this pancake cereal recipe:

  1. Make the pancake batter. (Work Time: 5 minutes)
    First, make the pancake batter. It’s super easy. Whisk together the wet ingredients like milk, eggs, oil, and butter, then the dry ingredients like flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Pour the batter into a piping bag.

  2. Prep your pancake making station. (Prep Time: 5 minutes)
    You’ll need to preheat the pan at a high temperature to get it as evenly heated as possible. After its preheated, lower the temperature for your pancakes. Don’t cook them at the high temperature! Because the pancakes are so small, it’s easy to burn them.

  3. Cook the pancakes. (Cook Time: 20 minutes)
    Use the piping bag to dollop small amount of batter (roughly the size of a coin—a dimeor a nickel for you Americans) into the pan. Each dollop makes a small pancake. Cook the pancakes for 1 to 2 minutes, or until set around the edges and lightly golden in the center. Flip, then cook on the other side for another 1 to 2 minutes.

  4. Serve immediately!
    Pancake cereal is best when the pancakes are still warm and fresh off the stovetop. However, because you’ll likely be cooking the mini pancakes in multiple batches, you can place the finished pancakes in the oven to keep them warm as you cook the rest of the batter.

When they’re done, toss the baby pancakes into a bowl, top with whatever your heart desires and dig in.
