Quiltie bought 3 boxes of Kashi brand Shredded Wheat to discover that it really didn’t have much taste. So via Quiltie I inherited 3 boxes of Kashi Brand Shredded Wheat 😀
Being one not to let things go to waste I went in search of recipes to use the contents of the box in different ways. The following recipes are what I came up with. I will keep you posted on what happens as I try them….
|BLUEBERRY SHREDDED-WHEAT MUFFINS|
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1 1/4 tsp. salt
1 c. crushed shredded wheat
1 egg, slightly beaten
3/4 c. milk
1/3 c. vegetable oil
1/2 c. blueberries
1 tbsp. lemon juice
Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in cereal. Add egg, milk, and oil. Stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in blueberries and lemon juice. Fill greased 2 1/2 x 1 1/2 inch muffin pans about 2/3 full. Bake at 400 degrees until done and browned, 18-20 minutes. Yields 12 muffins.
|SHREDDED WHEAT PANCAKES|
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 c. milk
1 1/2 c. pancake mix
3 c. crushed biscuits
Combine eggs and milk. Beat in pancake mix. Stir in shredded wheat. Let stand 10 minutes. Cook on griddle until golden brown. Serve with maple syrup.
Homemade Pancake Mix (to use with the Recipe Above/Prepare just to the “To Make Pancakes or Waffles” )
|HOMEMADE PANCAKE MIX|
10 c. all-purpose flour (3 lbs.)
2 1/2 c. instant nonfat dry milk
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. baking power
2 tbsp. salt
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Stir together to blend well. Put in a large airtight container. Label. Store in a cool, dry place. Use within 6 to 8 months. Makes about 13 cups of pancake mix. This mix works for both waffles and pancakes.
TO MAKE PANCAKES OR WAFFLES:
2 c. homemade pancake mix
1 c. water
2 tbsp. oil (waffles – 3 tbsp.)
Beat smooth with a wire whisk or fork. This makes eight (4 inch) pancakes or four large waffles.
To make pecan waffles, sprinkle chopped pecans on the batter just before closing the waffle iron. For strawberry waffles, top hot waffle with fresh or thawed frozen strawberries and whipped cream.
