National Raisin Bran Day

So I read today that it is national Raisin Bran day, have you ever heard of such a thing? How did Kellogg get a day named after a food they produce? I am fascinated now. I thought it only appropriate that I should make and post a recipe in honor of today. There are an amazing amount of recipes out there that have raisin brand as an ingredient but this one looked extra yummy-well as yummy as a recipe with raisin brand can be.

Bran Jam Muffins

Preparation Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 12


1 1/3cups all-purpose flour
1/2teaspoon baking soda

1/3cup margarine softened
1/3cup sugar
1 cupRaisin Bran
1/2 cupmilk soured with 1 teaspoon lemon juice

1. Stir together flour, soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.

2. In large-size mixing bowl beat margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg; beat well. Mix in cereal. Add dry ingredients alternately with milk; beat well after each addition. Gently fold jam into batter. Do not beat. Portion batter evenly into paper-lined 2 1/2-inch muffin-pan cups.
