Sometimes, I feel like baking something but I’m not sure what to make. So I hand Larry a favorite cookbook or two and ask him to pick something. He’s got an odd attachment to bran muffins so I wasn’t surprised he asked me to make these.
These muffins are interesting in that they don’t contain the typical bran cereal that most bran muffins have. Instead, wheat bran is softened in milk, creme fraiche and eggs. There are the traditional raisins (golden, in this case) – not my favorite but I put them in anyway, and the topping is a delicious, crunch mixture of flax, sunflower seeds and millet (half of which ended up all over my kitchen – these are messy to make).
The title is appropriate – these are great muffins. They rose up really nicely in the oven, and they’re moist and flavorful. And addictive. Find the recipe at Yummy Yoo-Hoo!.
