Personal Notes:
Can use rolled oats, cream of wheat, cracked wheat, all bran or other bran cereals, or most any cereal for part of the white flour. Soak cereals for about 5 minutes in the warm water before beginning to add rest of white flour. When using cereal, substitute brown sugar or honey or molasses for white sugar.
