Better Than Bran Muffins~Bran Muffins

I got this recipe from a friend when I told her that I wasn't that fond of bran muffins.
She said that these were better than (regular) bran muffins~~hence the name!
 Cream the butter and brown sugar.
Beat in the egg.
 Beat in the sour cream.
 Add 1 C tightly packed raisin bran cereal.
 Stir in and let rest for 5 minutes.
 Stir in the flour, salt and soda.
 Just until combined.
Spoon into greased 12 cup muffin tin.
Bake for 15-20  minutes at 400 until golden.
I always like to have homemade muffins in the freezer.
 I put them on a tray in the freezer for about 20 minutes to harden. 
Then I can just pop them into a freeze bag.
