Updated Aug 30, 2011

Ingredients

  • 1 cup 5-grain rolled whole-grain cereal or old-fashioned oats
  • 3 cups Gold Medal™ white whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter or margarine, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries, cherries or raisins
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Grease cookie sheet with shortening or cooking spray. Reserve 1 tablespoon of the cereal.
  • 2
    In large bowl, mix remaining cereal, the flour, brown sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Stir in dried cranberries.
  • 3
    In small bowl, beat egg and buttermilk with whisk until well blended. Reserve 1 tablespoon buttermilk mixture. Stir remaining buttermilk mixture into dry ingredients, stirring just until mixture is moistened; dough will be soft. On floured surface, knead dough 5 or 6 times.
  • 4
    On large cookie sheet, shape dough into 7-inch round. Cut large X shape, 1/4 inch deep, into top of dough, using sharp knife. Brush top of dough with reserved buttermilk mixture; sprinkle with reserved cereal.
  • 5
    Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until top is golden brown. Cool 30 minutes. Using serrated knife, cut into slices or wedges to serve.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Gold Medal® White Whole Wheat flour can be used in any recipe. It’s the best of both worlds—100% whole grain but with a lighter taste and color. Start substituting 25% or 50% of the all-purpose flour with Gold Medal® White Whole Wheat flour, gradually increasing proportion as desired.
