The REAL Grape Nut Bread
So, you know I have been hearing about this Grape Nut bread my dad kept thinking I made, so I found a recipe online, made it, had to make it again for it to turn out, and then presented it to my dad.
His response..."It's good, but it's not the same bread I remember."
So, back to the internet and my mom found this recipe. I made it, had to make it a second time because I didn't cook it long enough and the center was doughy...I baked it the second time for a full 50 minutes in my convection oven and still a little doughy, so watch out.
Well, this "might" be it, but it was a long time ago and he doesn't really remember...
So here is a second type of Grape Nut bread for you to try. It, too, is delicious and it is a quick bread, in that it uses baking powder and baking soda instead of yeast. If you have Grape Nuts, you should try it.
Grape Nut Bread #2
adapted from A Family Feast
2 cups buttermilk
1 cup Grape Nut Cereal
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup sugar
3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
4 tsp. baking powder
Preheat oven to 350˚F.
Spray bread pan generously with cooking spray.
In a large bowl mix buttermilk and Grape Nuts. Let sit for 15 minutes. Stir in baking soda. In a small bowl mix sugar, flour and baking powder. Add to buttermilk mixture and stir until well incorporated. Place dough into pan, spreading dough into corners. Bake for 50-60 minutes until bread is very brown and sounds hollow when you thump the top. If bread begins to brown too much, cover with foil for last 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes in pan. Remove bread from pan to a wire rack to cool before cutting.
