Excellent tasting and moist. I reduced the sugar to 1/4c of brown sugar and use w/w flour.

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line muffin tin with paper cupcake liners.
  3. Cream butter with both sugars in a large mixing bowl until fluffy.
  4. Add egg, egg whites, sour cream, yogurt, molasses, and vanilla - mixing until well combined.
  5. Add flour, bran cereal, baking powder, bakng soda, pumpkin pie spice, salt, raisins and apple pieces until just barely combined. Don't overmix - batter will be lumpy.
