Dorset Cereal
I have been one of the lucky bloggers chosen to sample this fabulous cereal/granola/musli
Dorset Cereals
I discovered this cereal/granola in the quest to find healthy cereal alternatives years ago. We love extra fibre and flavours with our breakfast cereal or add in's to our meal and now I get to write a review about it!
 I love baking and cooking;
I don't always have the time or want to make granola!
I feel this brand has the same ingredients minus the fillers, fat and sugars that I would not add to my own homemade granola.
This brand however, has way more ingredients than I would have at any given time in my pantry, so nutritious, delish and wholesome, The choice is easy.
It is vegetarian, vegan and has no preservatives
You should find it displayed in the health isle at your better grocers.

As you all know Breakfast is the most important meal of the day to kick start your morning. Dorset cereals are high in protein and low in fat, helping get the metabolism on the right track, by keeping your blood sugar level.

This wholesome product comes from Poundbury, England.
Here are the 7 tasty combinations:
  • Simply Nutty Muesli: a blend of multi-grain flakes with whole almonds, oat flakes, dates, Brazil nuts, sunflower seeds
  • Honey Granola: a lovely blend of crunchy oats, sunflower seeds, flaked almonds, pecans, sunflower seeds (This is the first box I opened and everyone just ate it with their hands!)
  • Simply Delicious Muesli: blend of raisins, sultanas, sunflover seeds, dates, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts & multi-grain flakes
  • Really Nutty Muesli: crunchy mix of cashews, Brazils, hazelnuts, almonds, sultanas, dates, flame raisins and multi-grain flakes
  • Super Cranberry, Cherry & Almond Muesli: cranberries, cherries, almonds, raisins, sultanas, sunflower seeds, flame raisins & toasted cereals (see the Bread Pudding below)
  • Super High Fibre Muesli: blend of toasted cereals, flame raisins, dates, sunflower seeds, toasted coconut and chopped roasted hazelnuts
  • Fruits, Nuts & Seeds Muesli: blend of raisins, flame raisins, dates, sultanas, banana, pumpkin & sunflower seeds, flaked almonds, whole hazelnuts & multi grain flakes (my personal fave)
My Decadent way to use Dorset Cereal!
This is a great "do ahead" breakfast/dessert for any Brunch
Pot Luck
1 (400g)loaf cinnamon bread
250 ml cream cheese
1/2 cup icing sugar
1/2 cup nutella
1 cup prepared lemon curd (ED Smith) (jam can be substituted)
500 ml 10 % cream
3 eggs

1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
6 tbsp granola
Toast all of the bread slices.
Beat the cream cheese with the icing sugar untill combined and fluffy.
Begin to spread half of the slices with nutella and the other half with cream cheese mixture.
Sandwich the two flavours together.
Slice each sandwich diagonally in half creating two triangles. Generously spread each triangle with lemon curd on the outside and stack the triangles together. 

 Work in batches of two placing in a greased 8" x 8" casserole dish, with some points facing up to get a crusty texture when baked. Tuck the end pieces of the loaf under the other sandwiches, to get more moisture as the crusts are tough.
If there is any nutella, cream cheese or curd left over tuck it in between the sandwiches.
With a fork whisk eggs, cream, sugar and cinnamon together. Pour over bread. Press down to soak in.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hrs. to absorb liquid. Remove plastic wrap and sprinkle with granola.
Bake for 40 min in a 350F. Can be served hot or at room temperature
Serves: 6-8
