- 1 cup plain flour
- 1/3 cup lightly packed brown sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder

1. In medium bowl, combine cereal and milk. Let stand for about 2 minutes or until cereal softens.

3. Add egg, oil and carrot to cereal mixture; beat well. Add liquid mixture to dry ingredients, stirring only until just combined.
