It’s time we give up on trying to make sourdough bread, rest our arms from whipping up a Dalgona coffee and honestly, don’t even get me started on banana bread.

No, instead we’re hopping on a new trend that has just taken off. One that’s perfect for breakfast and as a late night snack, one that will satisfy all sweet tooth cravings plus, leaves room for a little creative flair, we’re talking pancake cereal.

A trend that originated on TikTok, pancake cereal involves making mini pancakes on the non-stick pan, similar to how you’d make a larger one and then popping them all in a bowl and adding toppings of your choice from cereals like Cheerios to Oreo minis, strawberries to squares of DairyMilk, you name it, the options are endless.

Here’s one simple video we love, featuring chocolate chip mini pancakes!

Want to create them yourself?

Here’s what you need…

Non stick pan/ piping bag


  • 125g plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 235ml milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


1. In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the centre and pour in milk, egg and oil. Mix until smooth.

2. Place the mixture into a piping bag and heat your frying pan over a medium head with a little vegetable oil.

3. Squeeze the mixture across the pan (like the above IG video), making mini pancakes.

4. Leave for a couple of minutes before flipping to the other side, leaving them golden brown before removing from the pan.

5. Leave the pancakes to slightly cool on a wire try before adding to a bowl with toppings of your choice.

We suggest white chocolate and strawberries and some milk – mmmm.
