A YUMMY RECIPE

GOOD MORNING, SWEET BLOGGERS


RAISIN BRAND MUFFINS
*************************************


We love RAISIN BRAND cereal


And, I have been wanting to try this recipe on the back of the cereal box for awhile....
NOTE:
I had hoped you could read the recipe on the box but...no such luck !
Here 'tis....
BRUNCH MUFFINS
*********

3/4 CUP MILK
1/4 CUP VEGETABLE OIL
1 EGG, BEATEN
1 1/2 CUPS RAISIN BRAN CEREAL
1 CUP ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR
2/3 CUP SUGAR
2 TEASPOONS BAKING POWDER
1/2 TEASPOON GROUND CINNAMON
1 TABLESPOON MARGARINE, MELTED

************************************************

Oven, 400 degrees
Grease or paper line 12 muffin cups.
Combine milk, oil and egg in bowl. Stir in cereal and let stand 10 minutes. Stir to break up cereal.
While waiting for the 10 minutes to pass, combine flour, 2/3 cup sugar, baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon in separate bowl. Add cereal mixture all at once to the flour mixture, stir just until moistened. Divide evenly among prepared muffin cups. Bake 20 minutes or until tester inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pan. Combine remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Brush muffins with margarine and sprinkle each with cinnamon/sugar mixture.
(I am thinking a little CREAM CHEESE spread on top would be just full
of GOODNESS )
SERVE WARM


I decided to make them this morning


The box says "makes 12"

SURE 'NUFF....
it made a dozen ...
They sure do LOOK good !

UMMMM....
they ARE good ,
especially served warm ...
Just the right amount of raisins...
not too many
and
not too few.....
JUST RIGHT !
and....I am thinking a bit of CREME CHEESE on top would be devine !!

Bill and I love muffins for breakfast and these sure
HIT THE SPOT
this morning.

PLEASE....
HAVE ONE ON ME
(I even have some CREME CHEESE in the fridge)

I'm sorry you had a bad dream. I just hate when that happens.

I'm kind of dragging this morning, and I'm hoping my day at work goes better than it did yesterday.

I think I will have one of your bran muffins. Thanks for sharing.

Rosie's Whimsy said...

May I have one with some cream cheese? And, oh, not to be a bother but my coffee cup is a bit low .... could I have a refill of that, too?

Next time, we'll go out for breakfast, my treat. The best thing I make is ..... reservations!

Picket said...

Morning BJ..ohhhhh it is looking good over here girl..I love what you've done with the place! lol Girl those muffins look wonderful..there is a place here that serves little raisin bran muffins and I love to save some and bring them home to eat the next day all hot and with butter! I love how you are doing your photos like that ...where did you find that idea? We are getting some much needed rain this morning...almost feels like a Fall day...hope you have a beautiful day dear friend!

Jeanne said...

BJ, i was up early too, because of my elderly dog. She can be a nightmare, but we love her. Maybe you were smart and went back to bed. Something I just can't seem to do.I too, LOVE Raisin Bran cereal. I did make a mistake and purchased some from Costco, organic. It was awful stuff. I made myself eat it anyway. Do you know how much cereal that is? A BIG double bag. Sigh. I hope it was very healthy!!! I will try the muffins, they sound so good.

Love and hugs, Jeanne

Yummy, I love muffins with cream cheese for breakfast, lunch and whenever. There is a resturant in Tuscaloosa, Al called Cypress Inn that serves almost the same recipe. They are known for their mini muffins, and give out the recipe upon request. Look at their web.

Cyndy said...

My, my, but don't those look good. I think I'm just going to have to drop by the store on my way home from work and pick up some raisin bran. You made it look so easy! Love the way you bordered the pictures. What program do you use for that???

Thanks for sharing the recipe, I'm for sure going to make those this week!!! With raisins and bran, they've got be good for you!

Hugs,
Cyndy

Jackie said...

BJ, I have loved the raisin bran cereal muffins for years. Now you have made me want to get out the muffin tins and get started on a batch.

God bless.

Pleasant Drive said...

Thanks for visiting my blog. Sweet site and yummy recipe! I'll be back again to check in on you.

Shelia said...

Hi BJ! I am so honored you like my work, but no, I don't sell it. Just do it for myself and family. I just stitch a little here and there when I get the time. Thanks so much for the compliment.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Looks yummy, BJ!

"Magnolia" said...

BJ, those look absolutely scrumptious...and it's WAY after breakfast time here! I WANT ONE!

Cali Homemaker said...

those look sooo good! just curious, how long will a dozen last in your house? :o)

Southern Lady said...

Hi, BJ ...

I love your new look for your blog, especially the picture of those pretty window shelves in your dining room. I've always admired them and would like some somewhere in my house.

Your muffins look scrumptious and I bet they're good for you too. I'll have to try them. My three-year-old granddaughter "wuvs" Raisin Bran.

Your little "recipe cards" are a very nice touch, too.

Sincerely,

Janie

Julie said...

OMGosh those look so good. I love muffins - but they don't like me. I might as well duct tape them to my thighs!!!...and I can never just eat 1...which is part of the problem!

beddow said...

Sounds and looks yummy, I will have to try them some time. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Home made muffins...I didn't even know there was such a thing. I thought muffins only came from the grocery store or a bakery...wow who knew!
