Baking Equipment You'll Need:
I love my large Pyrex Mixing & Measuring Cup. I do all my mixing right in the cup and use it to pour the batter into the muffin tin...easy peasy!
I do use my electrick hand mixer when mixing up the cereal & the other wet ingredients as per the recipe.
To fold in the cranberries and apple chunks I use my silicone spatula...every kitchen should have one of these!
Paper Cupcake Liners are awesome for fast clean ups after baking and a pretty way to present your tasty treat.
Place your cupcake liners in the muffin tin for a super fast clean up after baking!
I love this idea.
Paper Cupcake Liners
The very first time I used paper cupcake liners, I don't know what I did wrong...but the cupcake stuck to the paper like glue! So for years I shied away from using paper liners and then the cupcake fad hit and everyone was using them, so I tried them again and boy was I pleasantly surprised!
Whenever I make muffins or cupcakes now I line my muffin tin with paper liners. It's so much easier! It's a faster clean up and they are presented better for guests, taking them to work etc.

I love baking...but don't always want dozens of muffins, cupcakes, cookies or other sweet treats laying around the house waiting for me to eat them...so I started taking baked goods into work as a treat for my co-workers.
The early risers I work with are always pleased when I show up with a container full of treats.

Mmmm...look at those big chunks of apple and just a hint of tart cranberries. Best served warm, right out of the oven. So tasty you won't even know your eating bran! Made me a bran believer.
