I tried another take on the bran muffins this morning, and this one went well.
Recipe: Blueberry Bran Muffins
1 1/2 cups SR flour
1 1/2 cups oat bran
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups blueberries
1 1/2 cups milk or soymilk
1/3 cup sunflower oil
1 1/2 dessertspoons treacle
1 whole egg + 1 egg white
1. Combine all dry ingredients.
2. Combine all wet ingredients.
3. Combine dry mixture with wet mixture and fold together until uniformly combined.
4. Do not overmix.
5. Portion into lined (or sprayed, or silicon) baking cups and cook at 175ºC until golden and set, about 30 minutes.
Notes These are even better than the previous attempt. Frozen blueberries are fine to use - just toss them through the flour before adding the wet ingredients. The batter is quite wet and sloppy - this is probably why they manage to be light, despite the bran content.
I rarely have soymilk around, but a guest left some behind, so that helped use it up. The cat Plummet likes soymilk, the cat Shadow does not. Both cats like the spare egg yolk.
