Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Cereal is one of the most popular options for breakfast in most households in America. Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Frosted Flakes, Lucky Charms, the list goes on and on with sugary cereal options. Also, cereal is rather simple to make.
Here are the ingredients that you need to make this cereal recipe.
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons milk
- ½ cup sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Here are the instructions that you need to follow in order to complete the recipe:
Before you get started, you need to heat your oven to 325° F and grease two separate baking sheets. Then, in a large bowl, you need to whisk together all of the butter and milk, until the mixture has a smooth consistency.
You can melt the butter down first, but make sure it is room temperature when you whisk it in. Now, whisk in the sugars the mixture until everything is smooth.
Now, you should switch to using a spatula to mix together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Using a spatula will help mix all the ingredients together evenly without everything getting stuck inside the whisk.
For the best bake, you should wrap and refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes. After that, just like you would a pie dough, roll the dough out to 1/8 inch thick on a lightly floured surface.
Next, cut the rolled sheet of dough in two so it fits across two baking sheets and transfer dough. Next, you need to bake the dough for 8 minutes as a sheet of dough.
Then, remove hot sheet pan from oven and leave the dough on it. Very carefully with a dinner knife, pizza roller, etc, cut the dough into squares, rectangles, triangles, or any shapes you want.
Then, lightly brush or rub the sheet of dough with some melted butter. In a small bowl, combine the additional sugar and cinnamon then sprinkle atop the surface of the dough.
Lower the oven temperature to 300F and bake for another 8 minutes, until shapes are lightly golden brown on top (watch closely). Allow the mixture to cool completely before making an epic bowl of cereal.
