We love bran muffins! With raisins, blueberries, cranberries, dates or plain! Fresh, with butter spread on it = YUM!


Bran Muffins

(Makes 12 muffins)

1 cup buttermilk (or add 1 Tbsp vinegar to 1 cup milk)
1 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 Tbsp molasses
1 cup bran
1 cup wheat/spelt flour (if using spelt, use 1 1/4 cup)
1/4 tsp salt

Combine buttermilk and soda, set aside. Cream butter and brown sugar thoroughly. Add egg and beat well. Add buttermilk and soda, then molasses and bran, blend. Stir in flour and salt, fold in fruits and nuts. Spoon into well-greased/lined muffin cups, bake around 20 minutes at 375F.
