The creamiest Cream of Wheat ever!

Picture from Livestrong.com

Be prepared for the creamiest, tastiest Cream of Wheat you will ever have. This recipes calls for cinnamon, anise and milk. With these simple ingredients, it turns your plan ole bowl of Cream of Wheat bowl into a delicious bowl of yummy morning goodness. Let's get started!



Ingredients

1 cup of water
1 cup of cream of wheat
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 anise star
1/2 cup of sugar
3/4 cup of Carnation milk
2 pinches of salt

In a small pot on meduim temperature add water, anise and cinnamon. Once the water comes to a boil (allow water to boil a little longer, allowing spices to come together) using a whisk slowly add in the cream of wheat. Pouring in the cream of wheat at once will result in a lumpy batch. Once the cream of wheat comes to a boil add in the sugar and stir. After 2 minutes, lower the temperature and slowly whisk in the milk. Whisk and whisk for about 3 to 4 minutes nonstop. Then add the salt and whisk until you have a creamy creamy consistancy. Allow everything to come together cooking on the low temperature for a few more minutes, maybe 2-4 minutes. Sooner if your really hungry, lol. Smells delicious huh...Plate and enjoy!

Let me know how yours turns out. I'd love to hear.




FYI:  You can also have this right before bed. It will have you sleeping like a baby.
