Default Non-beer use for DME

I've gotten into the habit of making pancakes for my family on Saturday mornings, and one recipe I came across said I could use malt instead of sugar, in a 2:1 ratio (twice as much malt as the amount of sugar given.) According to this recipe book, traditional diner pancakes are made with malt instead of sugar. For a while I was using malted milk, but when I started playing around with extract brewing a few months ago, I picked up an extra bag of Pilsen DME.

To be honest with you, the pancakes come out great, but I've never taken a bite and said, "Wow, that malt really puts it over the top." But it's still cool to throw in some ingredients from my brew stash for the family breakfast.

Baking malt tends to be sweeter than brewing malt because it has more short-chain sugars. Desirable for baked goods, but not for brewing. So, brewing malt won't give you the same impact.

I use DME when I make bagels. Really gives them a nice malty/bready character that is hard to duplicate otherwise.

look at some prohibition style cookbooks, it's how malters stayed in business during that time, HTH.

...or maybe that was a reasonable cover for getting brewing supplies into your house?

+1 for using it in bagels. Either straight in the dough or in the poaching liquid.

Could you use LME in bagels, do you think?

I've used this for starter. I don't have a LHBS. The heath food stores have this.

boil it with some fructose and you'll get hard candy and lollypops. Around here it is sold with hard candy flavored with berries. Just berry pulp and fructose boiled together I guess

I tried some in oatmeal cookies. They came out great. I took out 1/2 cup of the sugar and replaced it with 1 cup DME.

Still sweet but with a good malt flavor.
