How to Make Quaker Oats Recipes

I learned how to make Quaker Oats recipes as a child. As I remember, years ago the recipes were limited to cereal and cookies. This is one of those products which Mom always kept on hand. I do not remember a time when we did not have old fashioned rolled oats in the kitchen cabinet. It was a giant round red, white and blue box. I used the rolled oats mostly for baking oatmeal cookies. I have often shared the story of Mom teaching me how to make cookies. I was very young and used a teacup for a measuring cup and silverware spoons to measure a teaspoon and tablespoon.

In the early nineteen hundreds, many learned how to make Quaker Oats recipes with their first featured recipe.  The first recipe on the Quaker Oats box was for oatmeal bread, I never made bread until many years later. An oatmeal cookie recipe was one of my two favorite cookie recipes to bake for my classmates. My recipe was nothing like their first cookie recipe (Oat cakes) published in 1908: ½ pound butter, 3 cups Quaker Oats and 2 eggs. My cookies were really good made with sugar, flour and all the good stuff!

You had to learn how to make Quaker Oats recipes if you wanted to make anything with rolled oats. It was the only brand that I remember ever seeing. The products were very limited and so were the recipes. This made sense to me when I found that the Quaker Mill Company was in Revenna, Ohio. Perhaps this is the reason that this is the only oatmeal which many of us had ever known.

Our family usually ate bacon, sausage or ham with eggs for breakfast. Usually we had bread and sometimes we had biscuits (Usually with sausage gravy). On occasion, we might have had sweet rolls or pancakes. Even with us there was still a place for Quaker oats as a cereal. On snowy days, our school bus would not drive our road for fear of sliding off. We would walk into school on those days. It was over a mile and Mom knew we would get really cold. It was on these mornings that Mom insisted we eat a big bowl of hot oatmeal before we left. A little cream, brown sugar and cinnamon made it like a hot dessert and it was very warming.

Over the years I have learned how to make Quaker Oats recipes for everything. It is no longer just for cereal, cookies and breads. I am not sure just which of my recipes are actually from Quaker Oats and which one are not. There are also many more Quaker Oats products to add to your cooking adding different flavors and textures.
