Pumpkin-Maple Cream of Wheat. No lumps.

My husband doesn't go for hot cereal unless it's oatmeal. Loves it. Cream of Wheat is definitely not on his list. Hates lumps. And with my skills, the Cream of Wheat does tend to get lumpy sometimes. Not this time, I was careful! Besides, I like the lumps. I like Cream of Wheat and I like pumpkin. So when I saw the recipe for Pumpkin-Maple Breakfast Pudding at Faith's blog, An Edible Mosaic, I had to try it. Made me think of a sort of pumpkin pie in a bowl for breakfast. I even had the maple sugar on hand. One of those purchases I had no clue what to do with it, had to have it, and it came in really handy!


 


You can find the recipe for Pumpkin-Maple Pudding at An Edible Mosaic.
I used the Cream of Wheat instead of semolina and  I garnished with granola and walnuts for added flavor and texture.

  2. I am with your husband, no Cream of Wheat for me. I just remember my mother making me eat it as a kid. Love the flavors on this one. I've never seen sugar like this before. Hope you're having a great weekend.
