Adding cereal to bread is a great way to add some flavor and nutrition to any bread recipe. This bread is comforting and truly delicious. I topped it with melted butter and then sprinkled it with cinnamon sugar.
The kids loved it and I have to admit it didn’t last very long.
This bread makes a great toast for that morning breakfast. The cinnamon is not over powering and the bread itself is soft. By brushing the top of the bread with butter while it was still warm caused the crust to remain soft and chewy. I hope you can find this cereal in your local supermarket, because this is a wonderful bread recipe, please give it a try!
- 2 cups Water ( Boiling )
- ½ cup Sonny Boy Cereal
- ¾ cup Rye Flour
- ⅓ cup Powdered Milk
- ½ cup Honey
- 2 Eggs ( lightly beaten )
- ¼ cup Oil
- 5 - 6 cups Bread flour
- 2 teaspoonsCinnamon
- 1 cup Raisins
- 4 teaspoons Instant Yeast
- 1½ teaspoons Salt
- Set up all your ingredients ahead of time. This will help to make sure you have everything you need for this bread recipe. In a large bowl, pour in the Sonny boy cereal and the boiling water. Stir and then allow to rest for 10 minutes.
- After the cereal has sat add in the honey, oil, salt and powdered milk. Stir till all the ingredients are well blended. Now, add in the beaten eggs, rye flour and the cinnamon. Stir till well mixed.
- Start adding in the flour, about a cup and a half and mix till smooth. Add in the instant yeast and mix. Continue to add in more flour, about a ½ cup at a time.
- When the dough becomes to hard to mix in the bowl add a little of the remaining flour onto a flat surface. Pour out the dough and sprinkle some more flour on top. Begin to knead the dough adding more flour as needed. You want the dough to be a little on the sticky side. Continue to knead the dough for about 15 minutes. The dough will become smooth and elastic.
- Place the dough into a lightly oiled bowl and turn over a few time to lightly coat all sides of the dough. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rest for about an hour or till the dough doubles in bulk. Remove from the bowl and degas the dough. Place the raisins on top.
- Knead them into the dough till the raisins are well blended throughout the dough. Cut the dough in half and shape into two loaves. Place them into two large loaf pans that are lightly greased. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to sit till double in size, about 1 hour. Remove plastic wrap and place into a 375 degree oven for about 30 - 35 minutes. Remove from oven and place onto a wire rack to cool. If you want you can brush some butter on top of the loaves while they are still hot and then sprinkle some cinnamon sugar on top.
