  • Raisin-bran muffins

      Nice--and incredibly quick. Since I didn't have any plain wheat bran on hand, I compromised by using 1 cup of Hodgson Mill multi-grain cereal with flaxseed and soy, 1/4 cup unbleached white flour, and 1/4 cup toasted wheat germ. (The recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups of wheat bran.) I macerated 1/4 cup dark raisins and 1/4 cup dried cranberries in a bit of orange juice (the leftover volume of which I used to replace an equal volume of buttermilk in the batter). The batter was a lovely consistency, and the muffin cups were quite easy to fill evenly. They raised nicely--and even came off the muffin liners without difficulty while still warm (contrary to the note at the foot of the recipe). Baked for 18 minutes at ca. 400 degrees F. Will make again, perhaps with different dried fruit (and maybe some orange zest or more orange juice). I might also try reducing or replacing the oil with applesauce . . . or apple butter, too, might complement the molasses nicely.
