People are turning everything from cinnamon rolls to pancakes into miniature versions that can be eaten straight out the bowl with milk and a spoon - yes, just like cereal. 

The trend emerged some time last week after a recipe for “pancake cereal” was shared on the video sharing app, TikTok.

The original video showed a TikTok user dotting raw pancake batter onto a pan using a squeeze-bottle. 

The discs were cooked until golden and tossed about until both sides were perfectly brown. A spoon of butter was then added straight to the pan during the frying process to ensure all sides were perfectly crisp. Next, the mini pancakes were transferred to a bowl, drizzled with generous lashings of syrup and pats of butter that melted upon contact. 

Garnering hundreds or thousands of views and many more copycat videos, the recipe soon turned into a food challenge where people attempted to recreate their own version with new flavours and toppings.

Since then, we’ve seen more and more unusual cereal creations emerging online. 

Here are 4 other cereal trends:

1. Waffle cereal

2. Cookie cereal

3. French toast cereal

4. Cinnamon roll cereal
