Here is a recipe I use often. Its for Bran Muffins and from a 1984 'The New Zealand Microwave Cookbook' by Jan Bilton. I like the recipe for the reason you can cook just one muffin each day if you wish. I often do this for breakfast - one warm bran muffin with a cup of Easiyo skimmers yoghurt. I prefer plain yoghurt and enjoy the sweetness of the muffin with it as to me they seem to go well together. I realise this doesn't appeal to everyone! Having this for breakfast really 'sticks to your ribs' and I'm not hungry again at all until lunchtime (or even well after) which has got to be good!
The beauty of the recipe is that the dough keeps in the fridge (covered) for about 4 weeks - I have never kept it this long.
Bran Muffins - Jan Bilton.
½ cup water
1¼ cups bran
50grms butter
1 egg
½ cup brown sugar
¾ cup plain yoghurt
1¼ cups flour
1¼ teaspoons baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup raisins

Boil and measure water into mixing bowl, add butter and stir until butter is melted. Add bran and mix well. Beat egg and add with sugar to mixture then add the remaining ingredients. Spoon into paper patty cases or paper lined muffin cups.
To cook allow 30 seconds per muffin at room temperature or 45 seconds per muffin refrigerated. Note: this recipe was made for microwaves of 600-700 watts.
My microwave is 1000 watts and I cook one texas sized muffin for one minute and it turns out well.

H ubby is starting a new job next week and I ;d like a good easy recipe for bran muffins that are moist, I would like to use grated apple or raisins or both thanks, have never had a good deal of luck with bran muffins. tia

Chef_teddy147, Apr 9, 2:22 pm

The ones from the old Vi-Bran packet were always the nicest, you can add sultanas and grated carrot to make a really tasty muffin.

Chef_cookessentials, Apr 9, 2:33 pm

Managed to find it for you.

140g (5 oz/1large cup) Flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

115g (4oz 1. 5 cups) Vi Bran

55g (2oz 1/4 cup) sugar

1 egg

1 level tsp soda

225g (8oz) milk

1 tbsp golden syrup

1 tbsp butter

Sift flour, baking powder and salt.

Add Vi-Bran and sugar.

Beat egg well, add soda dissolved in milk, then butter and golden syrup, warmed together.

Stir liquid quickly into the dry ingredients until the flour is just dampened.

Put in cold, greased patty tins.

Bake at 220 deg C for 12-15 minutes.

For variety, raisins may be added.

This is a very old recipe off the back of an Elfin Vi-Bran packet

adding these to the collection -

Foolproof Bran Muffins

. Mix together:- 1 ½ cups Bran
½ cup wheatgerm

Mix in 2 eggs and beat well.

Stir the following dry ingredients together in a bowl
1 cup plain flour
½ cup wholemeal

Fold these into the wet mix DON’T over mix or beat as this results in tough muffins

Adding a mashed banana or some chopped or pulped cooked peaches, pears, etc. adds extra moistness to a recipe too.

Any recipe with fruit in can be altered to use some other ingredient in place of the fruit. chocolate chips, nuts, sunflower or pumpkin seeds, etc.

I do alison Holsts and add a couple of bananas. Very most and delish! Will see f I can find it

Chef_wendalls, Jun 25, 10:42 pm

http://www.nutritionchic.com/bran-muffins-a-simple-recipe-from-alison-holst.html
I think her original only had 1 cup of bran and probably1 cup of flour

Chef_wendalls, Jun 25, 10:45 pm

These ones are very nice. Mollases makes a nice change to flavour but you can also use treacle, honey or golden syrup. I found that golden syrup did not add much flavour but still worked. I also add an aditional 3/4 cup walnuts. Use cooked apples as the muffins are moist and keeps well
.
3 eggs
¾ cup soft brown sugar
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup mollases
1 ½ cup milk

¾ cup flour
¾ cup whole meal flour
2 ¼ cup bakers bran
¾ tsp salt
2 ¼ tsp baking powder
¾ tsp Bi carb soda
¾ cup raisins or blueberries or anything you prefer.

I have fiddles around with the old Vi-bran ones and added finely grated apple and carrot to them which makes them lovely and moist.

Chef_cookessentials, Jul 25, 2:59 pm

I make the breakfast muffins that are on this message board (google the recipe) for my lunch at work and they are very filling and yummy. While I like the original recipe, I have changed it lately to using 50 grams butter instead of oil (don't like oil so much) and add enough milk to make a soft mix. I also use raw sugar, and 1 cup wholemeal flour instead of one cup of white flour. I can't see why you couldn't add bran as well. I use raisins instead of sultanas because I like them better.

Chef_meetee, Jul 25, 7:10 pm

How this thread title shows up on the Message Board list, very misleading:
