'Pancake Cereal' is the new viral food trend to know
In recent weeks, we have seen Dalgona Coffee and Banana Bread both go viral on TikTok and other social media platforms amid global lockdowns as people spend more time inside and in their own kitchens.
At-home chefs have become social media celebs in little to no time since recipes which are aesthetically pleasing and easy to make can literally garner millions of views.
The newest viral recipe, which is for Pancake Cereal, blew up on TikTok in early May and the hashtag #pancakecereal now has over five million views.
Like other viral food trends, pancake cereal has now found its place on other social media platforms as users share their concoctions far and wide.
Why are food trends all the rage?
Basically you don't need to be a professional chef to have some fun in the kitchen during quarantine. Cooking has found its way into the lives of millions of Gen Z and millenial social media users during a time when we are all forced to look for entertainment while indoors.

Food trends are fun because it doesn't matter whether your concoction is a win or an epic fail as the resulting content will definitely get you major social media clout.
If you're keen on taking your social media game up a few notches, try the trend for yourself!
How do you make pancake cereal?
It's super easy! Basically prepare your batter as you would for regular pancakes (either from scratch or from the pre-packaged boxes available). Instead of pouring out the batter all at once, ration the sizes by then transferring the whipped batter to a plastic bag and cutting a small tip at the edge of said bag to ensure that the mix is dispensed to the pan in small amounts.
Make sure to keep your eye on the pancake babies while they cook as they only need a few seconds to get nice and brown!
When the baby pancakes are cooked and ready, place them all in a bowl and finish them off with a syrup or topping of your choice!
Oh, and don't forget to snap a photo with the tag #pancakecereal!
