INTRODUCTION

I eagerly wanted to keep my promise of giving readers 10 choices of muffins in my new muffins series and this is the 10th and the last muffin.. Not until a few months later, I will design some new muffins.

This is a rather special muffin without the use of flour but baby cereals. In this illustration, I have use instant 3 in 1 cereals that have milk and sugar. However, you can always use the normal baby cereal and add sugar to suit your taste buds.

Cereal is a good moisture retainer and this muffin is moist and spongy. After it is out of the oven, it is slightly crispy but as time passed, it will become very moist.. This is especially so after 8 hours of preparation. The muffins have a rather strong baby cereal aroma and those who like the baby cereal should give it a try.

  • In a mixing  bowl, put all the wet ingredients (eggs, cooking oil or melted butter, milk and condensed milk), stir until well mixed. Put the 3-1 instant cereal or baby cereal + sugar + milk powder and sift  the baking powder onto the bowl. Use a spoon to stir until well combined.  Transfer the batter to the muffin cups. Fill the cup to 3/4 cup full and dust with additional cereal if desired. Bake in the pre-heated oven of 180 degree Celsius for about 15 minutes for small muffin cups or (25 minutes for big muffin cups) or when a skewer inserted into the centre of the muffins comes out clean.

CONCLUSION

Because the muffin have no flour, it is not as compact as normal muffins. The look of the muffin may not be that beautiful but the taste and texture of the muffin are awesome. Do give it a try.
