Maybe not anymore, although I’ve always been disappointed when Ive baked homemade bran muffins. These are moist and flavourful. I believe that the trick with the moistness is mixing the bran using the wet ingredients, as no bran muffin recipe Ive tried had this step. I often cut this recipe in half and bake just 6 in my toaster oven.
Preheat Oven to 350°F.
In A little bowl, combine 1 tablespoon sugar and cinnamon. Put aside.
In A medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt and 1/2 cup sugar. Put aside.
In A large mixing bowl, combine milk and cereal. Let stand about 2 minutes or until cereal is softened. Add oil and egg. Beat well.
Insert Flour mixture and stir only until blended. Scoop into muffin cups that are lined. Sprinkle with topping.
Bake Roughly 25 minutes, or until tester comes out clean.
