Sourdough Pop-Tarts cereal
Updated: Aug 10, 2021
Have you ever tried Pop-Tarts cereal? 🤔
I’ve seen it online but I couldn't find it anywhere 😭😭 so you know what? I made my own!!
I had some sourdough pie crust left from my Nutella & Fruity Pebbles Pop-Tarts so I made myself some super cool Pop-Tarts cereal!
How fun is this? To me, a lot 🤷♀️😂
They are tiny crunchy pockets made of pie dough filled with blueberry jam and covered with a super simple glaze, they look nice and honestly they taste delicious soaked in milk!!!
Give it a try, you can read the recipe below!!
--- SOURDOUGH PIE CRUST ---
93g all purpose flour
113g COLD butter
1/2 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
113g sourdough discards*
--- FILLING ---
--- TOPPINGS ---
pink food colouring
Add flour, sugar, and salt to the bowl of the food processor. Pulse a few times to mix.
Cut the cold butter into pieces and add it on top of the flour mixture. Pulse until the butter breaks up into small chunks.
Pour the sourdough starter into the food processor and pulse until the dough barely holds together with some crumble.
Remove the dough from the food processor and squeeze it a bit to hold it together.
Shape the pieces into a flattened disc and wrap it in plastic wrap. Let it rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and cover a baking tray with parchment paper.
Roll the dough on the counter or on a silicone mat and cut it into tiny rectangles (2 x 3 cm); add 1/4 teaspoon blueberry jam in the middle of half of the rectangles and cover them with the remaining half.
Seal the borders pressing them with a fork and make 3 small holes on the surface with a toothpick.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until the edges look golden brown.
Let them cool at room temperature before glazing them.
Make a simple glaze mixing milk and powdered sugar together in a bowl until you get a pourable consistency, then divide into 2 bowls and pour a few drops of pink food colouring into one of them.
Glaze the surface of the Pop Tarts cereal with the simple glaze and then make some swirls with the pink glaze using a decorating pen or a pastry bag with a tiny hole.
Place one portion of Pop Tarts cereal in a bowl.
Add cold milk.
As written on the original recipe from Homemadefoodjunkie the sourdough starter should be fed within the last week. You should use it cold from the fridge and it needs to be at 100% hydration, which means that it is fed with equal parts flour and water, by weight.
I used blueberry jam to match the berry Pop Tarts cereal that is sold in the US but you can definitely use any jam you prefer.
If not eaten right away store them in the fridge for a couple of days.
The sourdough pie crust can also be frozen for 3 months or so. To use the dough, defrost in the refrigerator overnight until pliable.
With the same recipe I also made Nutella & Fruity Pebbles Pop-Tarts.
If you make it let me know! :)
