Bran Muffins

Recipe submitted by Wifey on May 8th, 2007

Bran muffins are easy to make. Make sure you don't over mix or the muffins will peak and be tough. Great for adding to kids lunch boxes.

Prep time:   10 minutes
Cook time:   10 minutes
Servings:   10 muffins

Dry Ingredients
1 cup bran (wheat or oat)
1 cup wholemeal flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons milk powder
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon mixed spice (cinnamon, nutmeg)

Wet Ingredients
1 tablespoon golden syrup
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup hot water

1. Preheat oven to 200°C
2. Combine dry ingredients and mix
3. Combine wet ingredients, stir and add to dry ingredients. Gently mix until just combined.
4. Spoon into muffin tray.
5. Bake for approximately 10 minutes. You can test if muffins are ready by placing a clean, dry knife into muffin, if it comes out clean, without muffin mix, then muffins are cooked.

Add any of the following to the wet mix.
1 mashed banana
1/3 cup sultanas
1 medium grated apple

      Good recipe! Made these muffins heaps of times with lots of different variations of fruits & nuts etc and they have been a success every time! Add banana & chocolate chips and my kids love them as well

      Will definitely use this recipe again. Used half water and half almond milk. also did half wholemeal flour and half gluten free.. and didnt have golden syrup so used maple syrup instead. My 5 year old demolished his, a great lunch box filler!

      Born NZ - now live overseas. My parents were both british (and my mum an excellent cook), but she always baked the good NZ recipes and this I remember as a child. I have baked these of late, for my teenage boys, and they are lovely. As I never score anything, or anybody as a perfect 10 these are the best u can get.

      I messed around with the recipe, added dates and coconut, lemon rind and juice, substituted soy milk for milk powder to suit my dairy free partner. They took a bit longer to cook(I probably made them too wet) but are a absolutely delicious. The basic recipe is so straightforward.

      These muffins are so easy to make and really yummy. They taste much naughtier than they actually are! I have also substituted half the flour with non-wheat flour and it has worked just as well.
