Apple Cinnamon Raisin Bran Muffins

Apple Cinnamon Raisin Bran Muffins

Makes 6-8.

The original recipe calls for bran muffin mix, but, surprisingly, I couldn't find it at my local grocery store.  Instead, I substituted an apple cinnamon muffin mix, which worked out pretty well.  The result?  A just-sweet-enough muffin with bursts of flavor.
Slightly adapted from: Cupcakes! from The Cake Mix Doctor

1 package (7 ounces) apple cinnamon muffin mix
1 cup sweetened bran flake cereal with raisins, such as Raisin Bran
1 cup buttermilk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Prepare muffin tin with liners.

Place the muffin mix and cereal in a large mixing bowl and make a well in the center.  Place the buttermilk, oil, and egg in the well and stir with a fork to combine and break up the egg yolk.  Stir the wet and dry ingredients together with a wooden spoon just until combined.  Let the batter rest in the bowl to soften the bran flakes, about 5 minutes.

Scoop 1/3 cup batter into each muffin cup, filling it three quarters of the way full.

Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until the muffins spring back when lightly pressed with your finger.

Allow muffins to cool in pan for 5 minutes, then remove and allow to continue to cool on a wire rack.
