Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups, or line with paper cupcake liners.
  2. Cover raisins with water in a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave on High for 1 minute to plump. Drain the raisins, and set aside.
  3. Beat the egg with milk in a bowl, and mix in the bran cereal. Let the mixture stand until the cereal absorbs the liquid, about 5 minutes. Gently mix in the plumped raisins, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, melted butter, shredded apple, mashed banana, and honey, and stir a few times to mix.
  4. Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, and bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Very moist, not what I expected from a bran muffin. It had a light fruity taste and just the right amount of raisins. I didn't bother microwaving the raisins to make them soft, I just let them soak in the milk/egg/cereal mixture for five minutes. I used all-purpose flour as opposed to wheat and 2 Tbsp. of veg. oil instead of melted butter. I also added 2 Tbsp. of brown sugar. These made exactly 12 muffins that rose up nicely and they were done in 20 minutes - perfect!

This is a really good bran muffin recipe and very easy although I did make some changes. I didn't have bananas so I subbed in 1/3 cup of vanilla yogourt and added 1/2 tsp of vanilla, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp baking powder. I also used white flour and subbed blueberries instead of raisins. They were very moist and tasty. I did bake them at 400 but they were ready in 15 minutes. I'll keep this in my files and definately make again.

I thought that this is a realy great recipe! The only thing I did for a change is that I added a little vanilla and baking powder. the baking powder makes them puff up a bit more.
