"Pancake Cereal" Is Taking Over TikTok, and Wow, Brunch Just Got a Major Makeover

Attention, brunch-goers, TikTok fanatics, and amateur chefs alike: there's a new recipe taking over the internet, and it's an absolute must for your weekend plans. Meet pancake cereal. Although it may sound like the latest release from Kellogg's, it's simply a Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Brunch version of the breakfast staple. Videos of the drool-worthy yet adorable meal have been popping up across TikTok for the last few weeks, and now that it's really taking over social media, we have no idea how we didn't think of it earlier. It's so easy to make!

You can prepare pancake cereal the same way you'd prepare regular pancakes β€” whether that's prepping the batter from scratch or from the box, we don't judge β€” however, instead of pouring the batter right onto the pan to bake, you have to arrange the miniature pancakes on their own. Many people have poured the batter into a squeeze bottle to then squeeze onto the pan and create the mini pancakes, but let's be real, not everyone has an extra squeeze bottle hanging around. Others have simply poured the batter into a plastic bag and cut off a corner to squeeze out the batter. Using a spoon to arrange the batter is another option.

The pancakes only need to cook a few minutes on each side before they're poured into a bowl to enjoy. Many people have topped their pancake cereal with butter, maple syrup, chocolate chips, fresh fruit, and sprinkles, and some also added milk! The possibilities are endless, which means the batter possibilities are endless, too (we're looking at you, Funfetti). Check out the awesome pancake cereal creations ahead, and get ready to give your weekend brunch menu a major upgrade.
