I especially like blueberry muffins, and I like the idea of bran muffins, though I find bran muffins too dry. So I have always been on the search for the perfect blueberry bran muffin recipe. You'd think it would be easy to find the perfect recipe. Maybe I am too picky, I'm not sure. Today I found a new bran muffin recipe which I modified when we made them, and part of the modifications included adding blueberries. Here is the recipe we used:
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
1/4 cup molasses
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups natural wheat bran
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup raisins
Cream shortening and sugar together. Add molasses and eggs, and beat well. Add buttermilk, then add bran.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to liquid ingredients.
Stir in raisins and blueberries.
Place in lined muffin pan, bake at 400 F for 18 to 20 minutes or until muffins are done.
Makes 12 large muffins.
These are a nice looking muffin and taste pretty good. The blueberries make the muffins especially moist. Big plus! Personally I am not a big fan of molasses, so next time we make these I will actually cut the molasses from 1/4 cup to 1/8 cup. I think it still needs to be there, just a smaller amount. My husband hasn't tried one yet, but I'm sure they will pass in his eyes!
