cereal box muffins

Something struck me supremely easy about the muffin recipe on the side of my bran flakes cereal (seriously, what muffin recipe is difficult?), so I gave it a try. Yum, these are tasty -- and oh so easy.

sorry for the crappy picture!

bran muffins
slightly adapted from the side of my cereal box
makes 1 dozen

1 1/2 C bran flakes cereal
1 1/4 C whole wheat flour
1 Tbs baking powder
1/2 C dried cranberries
1/2 C golden raisins
1/4 C butter, room temperature
scant 1/2 C granulated sugar
1 egg
1 C milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 12-cup muffin tin and set aside.

In large bowl, stir together cereal, flour, baking powder and dried fruit. In another bowl, beat together butter and sugar until creamy. Then beat in egg, then milk. Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Divide evenly into tin and bake for 20 minutes, or until tester comes out clean.

Nice too see that the wee one is already on her way to becoming a muffin girl! Don't forget to teach her the song as she grows up! :)
