That Silly Rabbit Was Right—These Cereals Aren't Just for Kids

October 12, 2017

We’re big on food in bowls, and cereal just might be one of our favorites, morning or night. It's definitely one of the easiest bowl dishes: It just doesn’t get any simpler than pouring some out, covering it with your milk of choice, and digging into with a spoon. And, bonus, as adults, we can now buy ourselves as many boxes of sugary, so-called “kid” cereals as we want.

Our Baking Club members have been on a cereal kick, too, buying up Cap'n Crunch, Fruity Pebbles, and cornflakes. They're taking them outside of the bowl though, using them in a number of different desserts found in Christina Tosi's Momofuku Milk Bar, the Club's book of the month. (Cornflakes admittedly seems like less of a true “kid” cereal than the others, but not once Tosi is done messing with them!)
