Glopified Muffins  
If janitorial supplies can be magical, then why can’t muffins? In Janitors, by Tyler Whitesides, Spencer stumbles into a secret janitor/warlock lair where various mops and tools are "glopified" into magical objects. Using these objects, Spencer and his friends help defend their school against the creatures and warlocks who would lull the students into passive oblivion. After you "glopify" these muffins in your own kitchen, the batter can be magically kept in the refrigerator for up to six weeks.   1 (20 ounce) box raisin and bran cereal 1 cup olive or canola oil 2 cups sugar 4 eggs, beaten 1 quart buttermilk 5 cups flour 5 teaspoons baking soda  2 teaspoons salt   Mix all ingredients together. Store in a covered container in the fridge overnight before cooking. Do not stir the batter. Use a cookie scoop to portion into muffin tins. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes

About the author:

Christy Dorrity loves to read about cooking and cook about reading. She was taught early to have a discriminating taste for both books and food. Christy grew up on a trout ranch in Star Valley, Wyoming. She taught elementary school and lives in the mountains with her husband Devon and their five young children. When Christy's not reading or writing, she's probably trying out a new recipe in the kitchen.
