I decided to start off my Blogging Through the Alphabet series with my favourite bran muffins. Of course, I could have done just muffins under the letter M but then it wouldn’t have reminded me of my gramma’s best bran muffins, hot from the oven with a generous piece of cold butter slowly melting into each half.
Now, these were not some secret family recipe bran muffins, no they were simply made from the recipe on the side of the All-Bran box. I was so upset the first time I purchased a new box and my recipe was no longer there! Thankfully, the Kellogg’s Company has seen fit to provide this original recipe on their website.
I love that this recipe contains just simple ingredients that I usually have on hand so I can quickly whip up a batch whether for breakfast or even an afternoon treat (perfect with a cold glass of milk or a hot cup of tea.)
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups Kellogg’s® All-Bran® Original cereal
- 1 1/4 cups fat-free milk
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
For directions, please visit the Kellogg’s website.
There are a number of variations of bran muffins on the site, including one for Country Bran Muffins, made with buttermilk and raisins, so delicious.
I remember my gramma always made her muffins with shortening and molasses rather sugar and cooking oil so I started searching for a variation in this recipe and found this one for All-Bran – Bran ‘N Molasses Muffins. I love the richness that molasses adds to the flavor.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup Kellogg’s® All-Bran® Original cereal
- 1 cup Kellogg’s® All-Bran® Bran Buds® cereal
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup light molasses
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 1/2 cup raisins or chopped dates
The directions for this recipe can be found on the All-Bran site.
Both these recipes are quick to put together and equally quick to disappear, at least they are in our house. So delicious and healthy too.
