Oven Ready Bran Muffin

We like our bran muffins dense and grainy, so these days I almost always use recipes that call for wheat bran rather than bran cereal. I used to buy it in the bulk section, but our grocery store moved it to the baking aisle where it’s now sold in a Hodgson Mill box. At first […]

Favorite Bran Muffin

Bran Muffin

I think I’ve found my favorite bran muffin. The recipe was sent over by a friend who said it was bakeshop quality – just like you’d get at Little Miss Muffin. And she was right. The muffins were moist, the perfect sweetness, had just the right amount of oil to keep them from being too rich or too dry, and had an interesting blend of flavors from bran, wheat germ and trio of extracts.

Another Good Bran Muffin

This afternoon I found a stash of unprocessed wheat bran in the freezer, and since I haven’t made any in a while, I used it in some bran muffins. My favorite bran muffin recipe is probably this one from Epicurious, but this one’s good too. It’s adapted from Joy of Baking. Below is a …

Fuzz bounced back from whatever it was that made her sick yesterday. My guess is it was a combination of heat and drinking too fast, but I’m really not sure. She’s as energetic as usual today, spent a lot of time jumping on the trampoline and went on two field trips. While she was at […]

Bran Muffins

Fuzz has day camp this week. It starts early, so our plan is to wake up, take care of Lizzie, get packed up and have breakfast in the car on the way to the camp. Fuzz isn’t much of a breakfast eater, but she does like a little something sweet, so I decided our on-the-go […]
