Happy Saturday! It's time for another cereal taste test! This time we're tasting Cinnamon Toast Crunch! Can you see why kids love the taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch? It's the Cinnamon and Sugar in every bite!
And what better thing to compare it to than fresh cinnamon and sugar toast!
And did I really buy a loaf pan just so I could make my own bread for this cereal taste test? Yes, yes I did. It's really not too difficult to make sandwich bread at home. And boy is it delicious. I used this recipe for Simply Sandwich Bread from sallysbakingaddiction.com. After mixing all the ingredients together I set it aside to rise.
And after 90 minutes it was fluffy. I punched it down and then gave it a little more kneading.
Next I rolled it out the dough into a long rectangle. I buttered my new loaf pan getting it ready for the dough.
Rolling it into a log, I put it into the loaf pan to rise for a second time.
It's a good inch above the edges, which means it's finally time to bake!
Theresa found her way into the kitchen and was wondering what was smelling so good. It was making the kitchen smell really good.
It looks like a tasty loaf of bread. Theresa wanted to cut it open immediately, but we've got to let it cool down just a little bit first.
After 20 minutes I sliced it open. Wow! That looks perfect!
And it sliced perfectly too!
I buttered and toasted a few of the slices and then dusted them with cinnamon and sugar.
A look at the Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal.
And my fresh bread, toasted, with cinnamon sugar.
Enough talking, let's eat it! Ian thought the cinnamon toast was great.
Alli liked the cereal.
Theresa didn't want me doing anything to her slices of bread. Just a little bit of butter.
Yum! Do you remember the names of the three Cinnamon Toast Crunch bakers?
Wendell is the one you might recognize. He's the main spokesman. And then there's Bob and Quello. And now, Baker Joe!
Real cinnamon and sugar in every bite.
Thumbs up from the kids.
And a big thumbs up from T's parents too! Chi had 4 slices of bread! It's really hard to resist freshly baked bread, especially if it's still warm from the oven.
