Birthday cake cereal muffins

Updated: Apr 13

Today is one of my dearest friend's birthday so these cute cereal muffins are dedicated to her!

Sadly I cannot actually meet her today but I'm pretty sure she would love these treats.

They are sweet, soft and very easy to make so even if you don't have a reason to celebrate I suggest you to bake these muffins for your best friends anyway because they deserve it ;)

Check out my recipe below!


  • 1 egg (room temperature)

  • 62g sour cream *

  • 55g granulated sugar

  • 25g vegetable oil

  • 25g milk

  • 4g baking powder

  • 90 all purpose flour

  • 25g Sour Patch Kids Cereal crumbles *


  • 15g dark chocolate

  • splash of milk

  • Sour Patch Kids Cereal crumbles *


  • 20g confectioners' sugar

  • splash of milk

  • Sour Patch Kids Cereal crumbles *


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C) and prepare your muffin tin with 5 paper or silicone cups.

  2. In a bowl add all purpose flour and baking powder, mix with a hand whisk and leave it aside.

  3. In another bowl whisk together eggs and sugar with the electric mixer until light and foamy (about 2 minutes).

  4. Add sour cream, oil and milk and keep whisking until creamy.

  5. Leave the mixer and add gradually the flour mixture; mix with a rubber spatula until combined.

  6. Finally add the Sour Patch Kids Cereal crumbles and stir until incorporated (do not over-mix the batter).

  7. Transfer the batter in the prepared muffin tin filling them up to 3/4.

  8. Bake for about 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffins comes out clean.

  9. Let them cool completely before glazing them.

  10. Rainbow Chocolate Glaze: melt dark chocolate on a double boiler, add a splash of milk and mix until you get a dense but pourable consistency.

  11. Rainbow Sugar Glaze: in a bowl whisk together powdered sugar and milk until you get a dense but creamy consistency.

  12. Glaze the muffin tops and sprinkle with Sour Patch Kids Cereal crumbles.

  13. Enjoy :)


  • You can use yogurt instead of sour cream but the consistency will be different. They will be less moist.

  • You can use any rainbow cereal you can find!


If you make it let me know! :)
