I bought Malt Extract on Accident...
I was trying to buy malted milk powder, but the only thing I found in my grocery was malt extract which i thought might be the same thing... Apparently not. Is there anything I can make from malt extract besides beer? Or should I stow this on a shelf never to be seen again...
Is this a powder or liquid? How does it taste?
Occasionally I buy malt powder from the natural foods bulk section. It is described as 65% maltose (malt sugar), about 30% as sweet as sugar. I've been adding it to baked goods, along with or in partial replacement of the sugar, to add a hint of malt flavor. Also if it is the powder, you might be able to approximate the malted milk powder by mixing it with dry milk.

You could try using it as a substitute for honey in a bread recipe. The taste is different, but good.
