Curiosity got me to try this and I'm glad I did - it's really good! I doctored up my coffee with splenda and lowfat vanilla creamer. I was afraid it wouldn't be enough for all those crackers but it was just right. When I was young we poured milk over cinnamon toast or sweet biscuits and ate those for breakfast, and this reminded me of those tasty treats. Thanks for sharing the story and this recipe!
Nyteglori, I just had to look and see where you are from!! And, yes, Missouri is where my great aunt was from that taught me about soakie. She was from Wappapello, MO and she would eat the biscuit and coffee soakie. When my son was a baby, I adapted the recipe for him, graham crackers in milk, he loved his soakie!!! Thanks so much for posting, I love it!!!
My friend's family does this with hot chocolate....
I do this with matzo crackers. Learned it from my mom who leartned it from her's.
Reviewed for "Please Review My Recipe" tag game...This was a very interesting breakfast snack. It took me a few bites to warm up to it, but once I did, I really began to enjoy it. I'm a sucker for recipes with a history behind it, especially when that history includes fond childhood memories. I can picture your dad out working in the cold morning air, grateful for the break to enjoy his "soakie". Thanks for sharing!
