Easy & delicious idea for a last minute breakfast potluck or holiday gift. It looks beautiful, too.

I'm not sure where this recipe came from, but it could have originally been from a cereal box. Post Raisin Bran has the biggest flakes, which makes it look especially pretty for presentation, but any raisin bran cereal will do. =^..^=

How to Make Raisin Bran Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray cooking spray in 9 x 5 loaf pan.
  2. Melt 2 Tablespoons of butter or margarine in a medium microwave-safe bowl. (I love my large PC Batter Bowl for this!) Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the cereal and milk until blended. Let stand 1 minute.
  3. Add egg and 3/4 cup sugar, mixing well with a large spoon.
  4. Stir in flour, baking powder, and cinnamon until well-blended.
  5. Mix in the chopped walnuts, if desired.
  6. Spread into prepared loaf pan.
  7. FOR THE TOPPING: Melt the remaining 2 Tablespoons of butter or margarine in a small microwave-safe bowl. (I use my small PC Batter Bowl for this.) Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup cereal and 1 Tablespoon sugar until well-blended. Sprinkle over batter.
  8. Gently press topping and walnut halves into the batter.
  9. Bake 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on wire rack, then remove bread from pan and cool completely...
  10. ...OR serve warm with butter or cream cheese. =^..^=
  11. OPTION: In place of cinnamon, add 1 tsp. vanilla extract with the milk in Step #2.
