STEP AWAY FROM THE CEREAL PROJECT: BREAKFAST MUFFINS

I am calling these bad boys Breakfast Muffins rather than bran muffins because unfortunately bran sounds like a dietary punishment, rather than tasty muffin delight.  Bran conjures up images of health farms and stern, white coated people talking about keeping you regular! 

They smell delicious as they cook and freeze perfectly (as do most, un-iced/un-frosted muffins).

BREAKFAST MUFFINS


Ingredients


DRY STUFF
85g bran
200g white flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2tsp cinnamon

WET STUFF
150g soft brown sugar
100g raisins
 
25g pumpkin seeds (or any seeds that take your fancy)
290ml milk
90ml canola oil
1 egg

1. Prepare a 12 hole muffin tin with cases.  Preheat the oven to 375 F/190 C.
2. Mix the dry stuff in a large bowl.
3. Whisk together the wet stuff in a large jug.
4. Add the wet to the dry and mix lazily till only just combined (lumps do not matter, over mixing makes the muffins heavy)
5. Spoon into the muffin cases and bake for about 20-25 minutes. 
6. Remove when golden brown and the top springs back when pressed lightly.

A life without lemons is like swimming in the nude! You can do it, but it just feels wrong.

A Life Without Lemons started when I moved from the UK to Edmonton in Canada. I blog about fabulous food, family and my long standing love affair with gin and tonic!

Very glad to have you come along for the ride- is it gin o clock yet?
