Bran Muffin Recipe
Makes 12 muffins
1 ½ cups wheat bran
½ cup boiling water
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 large egg
½ cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup raisins
Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a muffin tin with 12 foil muffin liners.
Mix together ½ cup wheat bran and ½ cup boiling water in a small bowl and put to the side. The water will absorb into the wheat bran.
Beat together vegetable oil, egg, brown sugar, and vanilla until sugar dissolves a bit. Add the buttermilk and blend. Add wet wheat bran, remaining 1 cup of wheat bran, flour, baking soda, salt, and raisins and mix until well blended.
Spoon into muffin cups filling ¾ of the cup. Bake for 13-15 minutes. Check to see if a toothpick inserted into the muffin comes out clean.
