Another great recipe to use up some of those berries you picked and froze last summer. I used raspberries and Saskatoon berries today, but you can also substitute these with a half cup of raisons. This recipe comes straight off of the Rogers Bran package. I’ve used it for years as it is moist and delicious.
Wild Berry Bran Muffins
1-½ cup wheat bran
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla
1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup wild berries (fresh or frozen), or raisons, dried currants, or craisons
Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F). Mix together the bran and buttermilk and let sit for 5 minutes. Combine vegetable oil, egg, sugar and vanilla and then add to the buttermilk mixture.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to the first mixture and stir until just blended. Add berries and spoon into prepared muffin tins. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Yield: 12 muffins. Enjoy!
