To start things off, here's my recipe for plain bran muffins. These are old-fashioned, medium-sized muffins that don't resemble the giant super-sweet cake-like goodies you find in fast food courts at your local mall. They're nice cut in half and spread with butter for breakfast or with afternoon tea.
½ c canola oil
½ c sugar
2 ½ tbsp molasses
1 ½ c milk
3 eggs, or 3 tsp egg replacer + 6 tbsp water
2 ½ c bran (not bran cereal, just the plain unadulterated stuff)
1 ½ c whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 375F. Spray muffin tin with non-stick spray. Mix everything in a large bowl in the order given. Spoon into 12 muffin cups and bake for 20 minutes or until firm to the touch.
Makes 1 dozen.
Yes, that's my new knitting project in the background, looking rather like the trunk of a baby elephant.
OK, a tweed elephant.
