Mini Pancakes or a.k.a. Pancake cereal

As we are a huge community of pancake lovers, we love them in any conditions, chocolate, ombre, lemon-poppy seed - there are literally so many different variations of them, you can have pancakes every day and still have a huge variety of tastes. And this recipe is one of the latest food trends and..... I LOVE IT! Having a bowl of cereal-like pancakes is like a totally new way of pancake love. And it actually does taste differently even if you are using exactly the same recipe as you use for normal ones, probably the tiny form of them gives a kick of extra flavor, not really sure how this magic works. But let's take a closer look at this trendy dish and understand why everyone is so crazy about it! And of course, as usual, delicious vegan recipe is waiting for you :)

Small dots of batter are piped onto a hot frying pan and just as the bottom of the pan is covered in spots, they’re turned over to reveal golden, dime-sized pancakes. Cut. Now fast forward to the bowl, where the little pancakes are dumped in and topped with a thick square of butter and drizzled in syrup or -- more appropriate for the name -- doused in milk by a hand connected to a body off-screen.

It’s pancake cereal. Sydney Melhoff had the idea back in April. She had just finished making a batch of regular pancakes when she picked up a splash of batter that had cooked over on the side of the pan. It was so good -- like a crispier version of the warm, slightly sweet pancakes we all love -- so she made an entire bowl of little bites and posted it on TikTok. Her version looks a lot more like the Dippin’ Dots version of pancakes than the thousands of bite-sized pancake cereal posts that followed and have dominated TikTok and Instagram for the past month.
