Raisin Bran Muffins That Work

Recipe by Lennie
READY IN: 30mins
YIELD: 12 muffins




  • Preheat oven to 400F; prepare muffin pans by lining cups with paper muffin liners.
  • In a large bowl, beat together eggs, milk, oil, molasses, sugar and vanilla.
  • Stir in bran; let stand for 5 minutes.
  • In a small mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; add to egg mixture, stirring just until combined.
  • Carefully stir in raisins, being careful not to overmix.
  • Fresh blueberries, or unthawed frozen ones, can be substituted for raisins, by the way.
  • Spoon into paper-lined muffin cups, filling right to the top.
  • Bake in preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes, or until muffins are firm to the touch; do not overbake or muffins will be dry and tough.
  • As mentioned in the description, I like to cut this recipe in half (half of 3/4 cup brown sugar is 1/4 cup+ 2 tbsp) and bake the 6 in my toaster oven; after 20 minutes they are always done to perfection and I don't heat up my kitchen.
  • Remove muffins from pan and cool on rack.
