7-Grain Cereal Muffins
Ingredients
1
cup seven-grain cereal
1
cup dried tart red cherries
1/2
cup packed brown sugar
1/4
cup cooking oil
1 1/4
cups buttermilk
1
teaspoon baking powder
1
teaspoon ground ginger or 1 tablespoon crystallized ginger, finely chopped
1/2
teaspoon baking soda
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon ground nutmeg
1
egg, slightly beaten
Directions
  1. Grease 12 muffin-top cups, six 3-1/4-inch (jumbo) muffin cups, or sixteen 2-1/2-inch muffin cups. (Or, line standard muffin cups with paper bake cups.) Set aside. In a medium bowl combine seven-grain cereal, dried cherries, brown sugar, and oil. Pour buttermilk over mixture; let stand for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl combine whole wheat flour, baking powder, ginger, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg. Make a well in the center of dry mixture; set aside.
  2. Stir beaten egg into buttermilk mixture. Add buttermilk mixture all at once to dry mixture. Stir just until moistened. Fill the muffin-top cups almost full or other muffin cups three-fourths full of batter.
  3. Bake in a 400 degree F oven about 12 minutes for muffin-top cups, about 20 minutes for 3-1/4-inch muffins, or 15 to 18 minutes for 2-1/2-inch muffins or until golden. Cool on a wire rack 5 minutes. Remove from cups; serve immediately. Makes 12 muffin tops, six 3-1/4-inch muffins, or sixteen 2-1/2-inch muffins.
