  • Combine flour, brown sugar, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Stir in buttermilk and vanilla extract; mix well. Pour mixture into prepared baking sheet and spread evenly with a spatula.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned and firm, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool patty in the baking sheet for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

  • Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).

  • Break cooked patty into chunks and put through a meat grinder, using a coarse blade. Divide crumbs over two baking sheets.

  • Bake in the oven until dry, stirring every 10 minutes, about 30 minutes. Allow crumbs to cool completely and store in an airtight container.

Cook's Notes:

If you don't have a meat grinder, you can pulse the crumbs in a food processor.

Baking sheets without the insulated lining work best.
