Bran Muffins For When You're Bored Of Breakfast

13 October 2016 | Post A Comment

When cereal gets boring and you don't want toast, these muffins make a breakfast you actually want to wake up for. They are perfect especially if you find yourself in a rush in the morning and need something quick and easy. You can bake a batch on Sunday and have them ready for the week or keep the mixture refrigerated and bake when needed. You can keep in the fridge for up to 3 weeks before baking so there's no excuse to not get organised!

Here's what you need:

3 cups bran cereal (bran flakes)
1/2 cup raisins
2 1/2 cups plain flour
1 1/2 cups caster sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
2 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup oil

1. Mix the bran cereal, flour, raisins, caster sugar, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl until well combined.

2. Add the eggs, buttermilk and oil and mix well.

3. Fill muffin cases and bake at 350F for 30 minutes or until they are golden brown. Fill the cases so they are 2/3 full to get even, perfect muffins. You can serve them warm straight from the oven or wait to cool. 

It really is as simple as that. I hope you try out the recipe and let me know what you think! And also, what measurements do you prefer to see in recipes? I like cups because they are so much easier than weighing everything out but what do you prefer?
