Kitchen Tip Tuesdays: Adding cracked grains to homemade bread
Here's something I recently learned from our friends at Paul's Grains: Leftover hot cereal (like oatmeal or 7-grain cereal) can be added to a normal bread recipe. Just reduce the liquid in the recipe (to compensate for the moisture in the cereal) and slightly reduce the flour.
Dry cracked grains can also be added to bread, though they have the potential to make your bread drier if they haven't been soaked or cooked.
I like the idea of using leftover cereal! Now I don't have to make sure we eat every bit of the cereal I make for breakfast. :)
Here's some bread I made this morning. I used our regular whole wheat bread recipe, and added some cooked 7-grain cereal. I used about 1 cup of cooked cereal and 2 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour per loaf. My loaves turned out beautifully! :)
