However, from time to time, we have leftovers. Yes, even in this burgeoning home of 8. So, what do I do with the leftover cereal? Let me show you.
It just takes two cups of your left over cereal (ours was oatmeal this time)
Leftover Cereal Bread Recipe
4-4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 1/4 tsp of yeast
1 c water
1/3 c brown sugar
4 tsp butter
1 1/4 tsp salt
2 c. cooked cereal
I throw the cereal, water, sugar, and yeast in the mixing bowl and let it stir on low for about 3 minutes. Let it rest for five. Next add all of the other ingredients and stir for 5 minutes. I have to take mine up to a medium high speed. Let it rest for 10 minutes. Stir for 2 rest for 10. I continue this process for about an hour. Then I let it rise to double. (about 20-30 minutes). After it rises I punch it down and this recipe makes to loaves so I seperate it, and shape the loaves, and let it rise to double again. All the while preheating the oven to 350. When the bread has risen again, I put them in the oven for 30 minutes. It smells done at 20, but leave it in! When the timer rings, pull them out and butter the tops. This leaves the tops soft and moist enough to cut without crumbles. I have never had this bread recipe fail me. Good luck! Try it and let me know what you think.
I love the way a buttered top looks! So warm and shiny. It can't be beat!
Butter the bread and add some honey, and call it breakfast. At least we do. Thats what makes us Superheros!
