In Canada there is a grain cereal called Sunnyboy Cereal which is used to make a hardy porridge like breakfast. It contains cracked wheat, rye and flax and it is what I traditionally used in this recipe but now that I am living in the US I had to find something else to make do. In the bulk section of the grocery store I found a 9 grain cereal that is a great substitute. Hopefully you can find something in your area to use too.
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tbsp butter
1 cup sour milk OR 2 Tbsp vinegar + milk to equal 1 cup
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup mixed cracked grain cereal
1 cup flour
Preheat oven to 375F and grease muffin tins.
Cream together sugar, butter and egg.
Dissolve baking soda in milk. Be sure to use a bowl or measuring cup large enough for the mixture to grow and not overflow. Add to sugar, butter, egg mixture.
Stir in last 3 dry ingredients.
Fill muffin tins 3/4 full (these muffins never raise very much for me) and bake in hot oven for 25 minutes.
