Hello ladies,
I have several packages of instant baby gruels from my sister-in-law. My kiddo is not a fan so I am thinking of using them in something else. The problem is - in what? Do you have any ideas of successful biscuits with instant gruel in them? smile

What the hell is it - I haven't heard of gruel since I read Oliver Twist shock

Haha hey!
It is sth like that- you just add warm water and it is ready. I have never given it to my kid. I just have 5 packages and don't want to throw them. But used them on something....

So kind of like ready brek or baby rice / baby porridge?

I'm not sure how you'd use them in biscuits, the thought never occurred to me, but perhaps they could replace the flour?

Gruel- isn't that what the Victorian's ate?

It looks quite similar to Ready Brek so i'm guessing you could use it in recipes that call for that - I've done a quick google and this is what I've found but there are loads out there

Thanks all! I tried it with Blondie's recipe. It was good smile
