If you follow the food trends you would know this Cereal Pancakes have been trending for a little while now, a Tik Tok special. I’m usually late getting on the trend bus but as they say better late than never,right. You can tell I’m a little slow on the take. Whenyou’re a wife and a mum and trying to juggle a million things in the day there’s not much time to keep up with trends.

I promise you trying to promote yourself on social media is exhausting enough, it is emotionally draining. I always wondered if I was cut out for this world of social media and I must admit it doesn’t make me happy of late. I’m just tired of the facade that everyone puts up and all the perfection they try to portray.

I wish our world was as perfect as social media portrays it to be. It’s a rat race that I am not enjoying. But I have a blog to promote so I have to turn a blind eye to the facade and carry on. I have to keep reminding myself the reason I have a blog, to help others and for my love of food. Now for some Cereal Pancakes.

These are almost exactly like my Crumpet or as some know it, Flapjacks, recipe. This time I just added a half cup of buttermilk, it did make it a little more pillowy but really it’s not a significant difference between the two recipes.  I promised my 11-year-old I will make him some and when you make a promise you’ve got to keep it. You should have seen his face light up when he came to the kitchen this morning…it made this pain in the neck pancake making worth it.

Yes I say pain in the neck, because I hate making finnicky things. This was so painful, standing there piping out these hundreds of little things. It is a lovely recipe and I love pancakes, I just don’t like making “little” food…Lol! I’m always bragging about how easy my recipes are and here I am saying the complete opposite. So much for promoting this recipe. In all seriousness if you love cooking and baking you won’t mind the little extra effort. It wasn’t that bad, a little therapeutic I may add.

One thing’s for sure your kids will love you for it. When you see their faces light up it will all be worth it. You can even add some sprinkles when cooking the pancakes to make it extra fun for the kids. My little one just sprayed a whole lot of cream, added some sprinkles and poured a whole bottle … haha… of maple syrup over. He was in heaven because this is an occassional treat. I saw some poeple say add milk, I don’t think so. Who wants to eat soggy pancakes with milk, no thanks.

Cereal Pancakes topped with whipped cream

If you don’t have buttermilk  for the batter you can use just milk. It will work fine and won’t affect the softness of the pancakes. If you’ve tried my crumpet recipe you will know. I also know this recipe calls for a little extra baking powder but it makes all the difference to the texture.

Please drop me a comment if you try these Cereal Pancakes.

These crumpets or flapjacks are so quick and easy to make. They are light and fluffy
Course Breakfast
Cuisine General
Keyword crumpets, flapjacks, pancakes
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes


  • 1 cup cake wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp melted butter or oil plus a little extra butter to grease the pan
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup milk


  • Sift all the dry ingredients and set aside. Beat the egg and combine it with the melted butter or oil and buttermilk/milk
  • Stir the dry ingredients into the wet mixture until it forms a smooth batter. I use a whisk to ensure there are no lumps. Add more milk if you feel the batter is too thick
  • Pour about a quarter cup of batter on a greased pan and cook. Once little bubbles form on the surface, flip it over and cook the other side
  • Serve with whipped cream and maple syrup


  1. You may need a little more milk for the batter. However, ensure that your batter is not too runny or it will be difficult to keep the shape
  2. You can make them egg free by replacing the egg with some lemon juice or vinegar. The texture may not be exactly the same but close enough
  3. The batter does thicken a little on standing so if it's too runny allow it to stand for 5 minutes
  4. You can use some buttermilk if you wish, however the milk works perfectly fine
  5. These crumpets are perfect with jam too

    Love your recipes Lorraine so glad you do it but I know what you mean about this rat race we are seeing these days and I have 2 instagram accounts And I can never keep up with it. I just said to my hubby the other day I cannot be fake!! I don’t understand how people portray these picture perfect life on social media and yet I know some of these people and their lives are not perfect!! I decided to stay away from it and just check in every week. It drives me insane and I’m so glad I’m not the only one. I admire you for still doing it and keeping your head above water.
    Back to your pancake recipe!! My daughter is a lover of pancakes too and her eyes were widened this morning when I showed it to her. She is in the process of making it and im sure it will be fantastic. Thank you again!

      Thank you Nadene. Yes unfortunately it’s the world we are living in. I am passionate about food and this has always been my dream so I am not letting it stand in my way. I have realised that the world will never be exactly how we want it to be. I think it’s just harder for some of us to fit into this whole social media thing. Sadly I am one of them. But we can do this so don’t give up. Hope your daughter enjoys her pancakes:-)
