Cereal Song

Spring's awesome. Daylight saving's awesome. Sleeping right through the night (me) would be awesome. The muffins I made today turned out awesome.
Here's how they went:
150gm squashed-up weetbix and dusty sultana bran from the cereal container in the pantry shelf that you never deal with
1 and 1/2C flour
1 and 1/2t baking powder
1/2C sugar
1C milk
1t ground ginger
500gm diced pear
1 egg, lightly beaten
3T melted butter
1. Sift flour, baking powder and ginger into a large bowl.
2. Stir through sugar, crushed weetbix and pears.
3. Combine egg, milk and butter.
4. Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients, stirring gently until just combined.
5. Spoon mixture into lightly greased muffin tins.
6. Bake at 190˚C, for 30 minutes.
It's an amalgam of Nigella Express' Pear and Ginger Muffins, and this little beauty at the Weetbix site. I decided this morning to use up the miscellaneous cereals in the pantry, and ended up delving deep into the madness that is ... Weetbix cookery.
Like I say, they came out ... awesome. I'll definitely make these again, although I think the ginger doesn't suit Sweeney so well.
In other news, Sweeney had dinner with Geoff-next-door last night, while I worked late. They watched The Goodies and Geoff introduced Sweeney to apricot jam. He's been talking about it all day, and he even hung out his bedroom window this afternoon and yelled out to Geoff, as Geoff just tried to build his water feature. Thanks for showing Sweeney a good time, Geoff!!
