In a third bowl, combine the milk, oil, and egg. Add to the cereal mixture and mix well. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just moistened. Spoon into the prepared muffin cups. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.

Brownie Pudding Cake

In a medium-size bowl, combine the brown sugar, 3/4 cup cocoa, and boiling water. Mix until smooth. Gently pour over the batter. Bake for 35 minutes. Serve warm.
