My children do not like whole wheat bread. I've tried many recipes, and last night tried yet one more. I even changed the proportions of whole wheat to white flour heavily in favor of white flour (2 cups to 1). No dice. Looked whole wheaty, tasted whole wheaty.
The biggest problem with such experiments is that I now have a whole loaf of bread that only I will eat.
I really don't need a whole loaf of bread. My hips don't need a whole loaf of bread.
What to do? Somehow, the children must be lured into consuming this bread.
My husband, after years of claiming that he did not like sweet potatoes in any form was finally convinced otherwise at Thanksgiving dinner several years ago. After I poked him in the ribs and told him he really had to sample a dish a guest had brought, we learned that all you have to do is add enough sugar.
With that in mind, I googled cinnamon toast and the first link was this one. I knew it would be a winner before I even read it (Pioneer Woman's reputation precedes her).
It was. The bread is being devoured. I even have one procrastinator who is quickly doing his assignments to earn another piece.
And the whole wheat flour will move to the back of the pantry until I feel like making cinnamon toast again. (Does the whole wheat factor offset the high amount of butter and sugar used?)
