1 15 oz. box of raisin bran cereal
2 1/2 cups sugar
5 cups flour
5 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. salt
1 cup oil
4 eggs, beaten
1 quart buttermilk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix the cereal, sugar, flour, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Add the oil, eggs, and buttermilk to the dry mixture and mix well.
Fill muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake at 400 degrees for 18-20 minutes. Remaining batter can be refrigerated in a covered bowl for up to 6 weeks. (Note: the batter starts to look a little funny after a week or so but is still good.)
I do usually sprinkle the tops of the muffins with cinnamon and brown sugar or a little sugar before baking for an added crunch and sweetness.
I went shopping yesterday and paid just $59.21 for groceries for the next week. I do need to pick up some fresh fruits and vegetables as our grocery store didn't have much of a selection so as we are out and about today I will pick up a few things and add that to the grocery total. We should be coming in way below $75 this week!
