Bran muffins

I got this muffin recipe from my mother {it’s out of the “You winning recipe” book}.  I remember she always made them. They are delicious and they great for a lunch boxes or picnics.  Only 20min to bake {just the time you take to make a great cuppa} and the best part if you don’t need the whole mixture you can keep it in the fridge for up to a month.

So freshly baked muffins for a month… sound good!

What you need:
6 cups of Bran
2 cups Boiling water
1 cup of Butter {melted}
3 cups of Brown sugar
4 Eggs
4 cups of Buttermilk
1 Tbsp Bicarbonate of soda
2 1/2 cups Cake Four {sifted}
2 1/2 cups Wholewheat Meal
2 tsp Salt
{Optional: 1 cup of Raisons and/or 1/2 cup coconut}

Step 1: Pre-heat the oven at 220 C.

Step 2: Grease the muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.  {Alternatively you can use the cupcake cups, then pack them out on a baking sheet.}

Step 3: Mix the bran and the boiling water in a large mixing bowl.

Step 4: Add the melted butter, stir and allow to cool slightly.

Step 5: Add the sugar, eggs, and half of the buttermilk.

Step 6: Combine the bicarb, and the rest of the buttermilk and add to the bran mixture.

Step 7: Combine the cake flour, wholewheat and the salt {and raisons/coconut if you wish to add it}

Step 8: Add the flour mixture to the bran mixture and blend to form a soft dough.

Step 9: Spoon the mixture into the muffin pan {or cupcake cups} until two-thirds full.

Step 10: Bake the muffins in the middle shelf for 20 min.

Step 11: Remove muffins from the pan {if you baked them directly in the pan} and allow to cool.

Serve with butter.
