Bread Baking Babes (BBB) November 2016: Porridge Bread

Rye Porridge, eh?

When I was growing up, we often had porridge for breakfast – oatmeal porridge, that is. We would sprinkle brown sugar on top and pour milk over the hot cereal. Sometimes there were dates cooked into the porridge. I loved spooning into a steaming bowl of Mum’s porridge each morning before bundling myself into leggings, parka, scarves, mittens, hat and heading off to kindergarten.

So, when our family was moving from Winnipeg to Edmonton, and took the train to get there, (that’s right, people used to choose to travel by train!) I asked if I could have porridge for breakfast in the dining car. Imagine my surprise, when the steaming bowl was filled with a shuddering mass of smooth, smooth, smooth cream of wheat. Being five, my response to the travesty was to tearfully blubber out, “Do I have to eat that??”

I will remain forever grateful to my dad for asking the porter to bring some toast for me and heroically eating the offending bowl of {brrrrr} cream of wheat.
