best bran muffin recipe
hit me with your best if you think youve got a good bran muffin recipe, please. im constantly trying them and have never really goten what i would call a really, really good, worth-eating bran muffin. thanks.
I like this one, even made with yogurt instead of sour cream. I haven't made enough to say it's THE best though! I think the key ingredients in a good bran muffin are butter and molasses. I also like to add vanilla and spices: cinnamon, cloves and the like. And I also like a variety of cranberries, golden raisins and dark raisins.
thanks for the epi link. i might try those. not to sound too picky but im also looking for a recipe that does NOT call for AP flour, yknow? want to go the whole grain road...even though its a bran muffin anyhow. so, thinking i may give the epi one a shot with whole wheat flour (maybe whole wheat pastry flour). thanks!
any more ideas, holler at me.
Of course you can use whole wheat flour (that's what I would use) or even spelt flour; which reminds me, I have spelt bran, maybe I'll make that recipe with a slight twist by changing the grain..
The bran muffin recipe on the side of the Sealtest Buttermilk carton here in Ontario is the best, IMHO. I substiture whole wheat or spelt flour for the AP flour, and add cinnamon. I think buttermilk is the key to great bran muffins - any muffins, really.
I'll try and find a link to the recipe - I don't have a carton to copy from right now.
