In the realm of breakfast foods, this muffin’s right to rule is unquestioned. Orange zest is its crown and fiber is its scepter. May the sun never set on this muffin’s empire.
Mix the cereal and buttermilk in a small bowl and let it rest for 10 minutes.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and the 1/2 cup of sugar together, then mix in the egg.
Add the cereal/buttermilk mix, the remaining dry ingredients, and half the orange zest, stir until mixed.
Take the other half of orange zest and mix it with 1/4 cup of sugar.
Line a muffin pan with cupcake liners. Spoon the batter into the cupcake liners, filling each between 1/2-3/4 full. Sprinkle each muffin with the zest/sugar mix. Bake at 400° F for 15 minutes.

Fiber aids in digestion, helps sustain a healthy population of beneficial gut bacteria, and can lower ones risk of getting colorectal cancers.

Confession time. I almost never have buttermilk in my fridge. It’s great, it’s delicious, I just can’t bring myself to buy a whole carton when I only need a cup for a recipe. The good news is that it’s super easy to make an effective buttermilk substitute. Take one cup of milk and drizzle in 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. DON’T STIR IT. That’s what my wife always says to me because my instinct is to stir it. Just let it rest for 5-10 minutes. After that, for all baking intents and purposes, it’s buttermilk.
