Bran Muffins

Chara Teh


This recipe is from a friend of my mum's. She makes the batter ahead of time and bakes just a few at one go for her husband and herself. I have been doing this too! The muffins are best eaten fresh, and the good news is that the batter stores well!

These muffins are great for breakfast or tea! They contain bran, and that means that you feel full for a longer period of time. They also require very little prep work. The batter should be made the night before and chilled, and then baked the next morning...or the next next morning...or the next next next morning - you get the gist. Enjoy!
