Pancake Cereal Tips:

  • Use a thinner pancake batter. Skip the buttermilk pancake recipe and use a basic batter. This will allow the batter to cook quicker. Since you’re making just little dollops of batter, thinner pancakes on a hot griddle are better.
  • Put the batter in a ziplock bag or similar type plastic bag with a corner snipped off to create a makeshift piping bag. You have to move quickly when cooking, and this will allow you to quickly put the batter on the pan. You can also use a squeeze bottle.
  • Small pancakes can be a pain to flip, so make sure you use a nonstick pan and a chopstick to flip them once they are golden brown.
  • Keep the pan on medium-low. The thinner batter and small size will cause the batter to cook fast. Don’t let the pan get too hot. You don’t want to burn your mini pancakes cereal, do you? You should also use a nonstick skillet so that your bunch of mini pancakes doesn’t stick.
