  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 12 cup muffin tin, or line with paper muffin liners. In a small bowl, mix together the wheat bran and buttermilk. Set aside to soak until thickened, about 10 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to blend together the brown sugar, vegetable oil, egg and molasses. Stir in the bran mixture. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; stir into the batter until just moistened. Mix in raisins. Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling 3/4 full.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the tops spring back when lightly pressed.

This is the best muffin recipe! I'm starting a small muffin and orange juice business and using these muffins. I wish that I was one of my customers. I've tried these muffins.

Simply delicious. I chose this recipe over the "Classic Bran Muffins" because this one had a little more sugar and molasses that I thought would make a sweeter muffin. I was right. This has the ...

This recipe is awesome! I didn't have buttermilk on hand, but substituted 1tsp of white vinegar in 1 cup milk (let stand for 5 minutes after mixing). Light, fluffy and moist!

Delicious recipe! I used honey instead of molasses. While the muffins were warm out of the oven, I added a teaspoon of a combination of honey, melted butter, and brown sugar to the top of each ...
