Treat your family to this online sensation! Mini Chocolate Pancake Cereal is the newest recipe trend from TikTok that’s challenging regular breakfast. Try them in a bowl with milk or with maple syrup and soft butter.
1 ¾cuppancake mix, I like Trader Joes buttermilk mix or Krusteaz pancake mix
1 ¼cupmilk, add 2 more tbsp if your dough seems too thick
2tbspbutter for cooking, plus more for serving
milk, for serving
maple syrup, for serving
In a bowl, add the dry ingredients together and whisk to combine. In another bowl, beat the egg, then add the milk and vanilla extract. Whisk to combine.
Add the wet ingredients into dry, whisking together until well combined. Pour the pancake mix into a clean squeeze bottle or piping bag. I used a cleaned out ketchup bottle.
Heat a non-stick pan on medium-low heat. Melt a thick slice of butter, then, using your squeeze bottle or piping bag, squeeze quarter-sized mini pancakes all around the pan. Make sure to give a little room between each for easy flipping.
Cook the pancakes for 1 minute or until you see bubbles forming. Flip using a spatula, chopsticks, or a butter knife. Cook for another minute, then place the finished pancakes in a bowl. I kept my oven-safe bowl in the oven at the lowest temp to keep the pancakes warm until fully done cooking all batches.
To serve, top a bowl of warm mini pancakes with a little knob of butter, a drizzle of maple syrup, and a sprinkle of powdered sugar. For pancake cereal, add a splash of milk over top with your favorite toppings, such as fresh berries, fruit, or Nutella.
Tip: You can use any bottle that has a small hole to squeeze out the pancake mix or use a small tipped piping bag and squeeze the batter. I personally think a squeeze bottle is easier and you can store it that way as well.Make the batter a day ahead and make the pancakes the next day.
