Help me make homemade Malted Milk Powder

  • 5

I finally found malt powder (non-diastatic)yesterday and while it'll help me build a better bagel I'd also like to try making a proper Malted milk shake or the Malted Milk Chocolate Puddings and cakes I've seen on various blogs.

According to King Arthur's site, the Malted Milk Powder they sell consists of malt, milk powder, wheat and salt. My questions are: what do you think the ratio of milk powder:malt:wheat:salt is? And when they say "wheat" do they mean cake flour or??

          1. Don't confuse malted milk powder (for milk shakes) with diastatic malt powder (for bagels and other breads). Diastatic malt powder is made by sprouting wheat berries, drying the sprouts, and grinding them. It's easily made at home. I don't know how malted milk powder is made. I don't think I've ever used it other than when I was working at a dairy bar.
