First, TikTok introduced us to whipped coffee, now both users of TikTok and Instagram show us that pancake grains are the next big food trend emerging in the quarantine.
It is true, pparent grain. It’s really not as crazy as it sounds if you think about it. As kids, we ate cereals shaped like miniature toasts (Cinnamon Toast Crunch) and waffles (Eggo Cereal). So why not try shrinking down some flapjacks and turning them into a bite-sized grain?
Pancake cereal is surprisingly very easy to make as well. take @thenaughtyfork‘s tutorial as an example.
All you have to do is put the pancake icing in a piping bag and spray small dolls of it on the frying pan. So, just as you would with normal sized pancakes, flip them over when tops start to form small holes. Then place a tablespoon of butter in the pan and coat the mini pancakes in them until they reach the desired golden brown color.
Now, here comes the creative part, you could drown those mini, fluffy pancake pieces in milk, but that’s not what the cool kids are doing. It is best to drizzle the little pancakes with the breakfast pairing: maple syrup.
food blogger @veggiekins have even cooked together the perfect gluten-free and vegan pancake cereal recipe made with chickpea flour and without dairy.
And if you feel really crazy, you can sprinkle in them just like @soflofooodie did.
So are you down to the not so challenging challenge?
