Just Double the Recipe- Bran Muffins

There was always a bran muffin at Westwood Cottage topped with some homemade jelly. Especially Chokecherry! So good. This recipe from the Jean Pare Company’s Coming Muffins and More cookbook, is the perfect recipe. I like to double it and freeze half of them. A healthy breakfast treat to start the day. Give them a try, you won’t be sorry!

Just Double the Recipe Bran Muffins

(This recipe is for one batch 12 muffins, double it for 24.)

1 cup all purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

3/4 cup raisins

1 cup buttermilk or sour milk (I add 1 tbsp of vinegar to 1 cup of milk)

1 cup natural bran

1/3 cup cooking oil

3 tbsp molasses

1 egg

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla

In large bowl put flour, baking powder, soda, salt and raisins. Stir together well. Push up around sides of bowl making well in the center.

In another bowl stir sour milk with bran. Let stand 5 minutes.

Add remaining ingredients to bran mixture in given order. Beat with spoon until mixed. Pour into well in first bowl. Stir just to moisten – don’t over mix. Batter will be lumpy. Fill greased muffin tins 3/4 full. Baker in 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. Remove from pan. Makes 12.

About westwoodcottage

Growing up I spent a lot of time at my grandparent’s farm, Westwood Cottage. It was a magical place. My sister and I always returned home having made something; cookies, a craft, gathering wild flowers and making a bouquet. And I have continued the tradition. I'm a Home Economist with an interest in living a creative life. I sew, bake, write, and have tried most crafts at least once. Adding to one of my many interesting vintage collections is great fun. My husband is a brilliant painter as you will soon see and he is an amateur actor and playwright. We have one son who is a cartoonist animator and another son who is fast becoming a computer wiz. Living in a prairie town in a 126 year old home gives us a lot of inspiration to explore our passions. Won’t you come join us on the journey?
