Homestyle Bran Muffins

Guys, as promised, here is the post about the homestyle bran muffins. If you want to read about why I am writing this post, check here. I flipping love these muffins! We can’t get enough of them and my friends are testament to that. They must be so tired of these because I make them all the time.

The recipe has been in our family for a while. My mom used to make these a lot when we were growing up and I have now realised why. They are so easy, they use very few ingredients, they are so versatile and are always a hit at a tea party or picnic because they are not super sweet.

** Please excuse my absolutely novice home photography skills. Thank you!**

I have tried making these with banana, carrots, raisins, nuts and peanut butter and my sister has made them with coconut before. They are great every time, with every combination. I still want to try them with dates, oats and with dried fruit. Yummy! Give these a bash for your next meet up with your friends. You definitely won’t regret it, I promise.

Ingredients

1 Cup Sugar

1 Tbsp Butter/Margerine

1 Egg

2 Cups Nutty Wheat Flour

1 tsp Baking Powder

1 tsp Bicarb

1 Cup Hot Water

1 Cup Raisins (Or whatever you choose to add here – I don’t recommend a cup of peanut butter, maybe just try 2 Tbsp )

Method

Cream the butter and the sugar.

(** I usually just mix it with a spoon until well combined because of the noise factor in our small house. I generally make these while N is asleep.**)

Add the egg and mix it in well.

Add all of the other ingredients and mix until combined.

Spread the muffin mixture evenly between the 12 places in a muffin pan.

Bake them at 170° for about 20 minutes or until they are golden brown.

How easy is that? Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to enjoy a cup of tea and one of these delicious treats while my baby is napping!
