    I have a bread recipe from a website that calls
    for malt powder but I don't know what that is.

    I know what barley malt is.

    Close?

    Usually malt powder refers to a dry powdered beverage mix. Brand names would be Horlick's and Ovaltine.

    If you are in the US, Ovaltine is usually pretty widely available and there are also other brands of malted milk powder. Check in the section where they sell Nestle Quick drink mixes.

    Yes Heather is right - a malted drink such as Ovaltine, Horlicks, Malted Milk or Milo.

    There is a British speciality bread called Malt Bread however, made by Soreens, and that uses LIQUID malt (NOT too liquid, like treacle etc), as used in brewing. icon_wink.gif

    Is there any chance of seeing the whole recipe Cookie darlink? I will know then what malt it is, as I THINK you MAY be able to get powdered brewers malt now!

    Yes, here it is.
    Ovaltine? Gosh, do they still make that?

    Sorry, I didn't realize underneath the recipe that there was a Q/A regarding the malt powder.

    That looks like a lovely loaf of bread.

    I always do the same thing, ask a question first and then start looking properly. icon_wink.gif You won't believe how many times I have these kind of Homer Simpson D'oh moments. icon_lol.gif

    Hi Cookgirl

    Have a look at the first paragraph on here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malted_milk
    I would say you could give something like Horlicks/Ovaltine a try, as you quite often use some powdered milk in bread recipes as well as the sugar that is added, so the Horlicks/Ovaltine sort of replaces those items, as well as adding the malt flavour.

    They do have both liquid and powdered malt for brewing.

    Hi everyone
    I was just reading the thread and saw French Tart mention Soreens malt bread. I love it and long for it.
    I've seen some recipes and they do call for liquid malt. Now that Im oin southern California I don't know where to get it.
    Does anyone know?
    I have a Soreens malt loaf in the freezer and am saving it because I can't buy or make them here.
    Thanks for any help

    Malt powder in bread making refers to Diastatic Malt Powder which is finely ground sprouted barley.

    Non-diastatic malt is the powder that is found in malted milk powder eg HorlicksĀ®, OvaltineĀ® etc.

    I don't come in to the forums that much any more, but I buy a jar of malt extract from a really good health store. Its a bit like a maple syrup consistency.
