Product Review: Wheat Bran
-this product is great for muffins - the directions on the back of the box does call for regular flour in addition to the wheat bran - so they are not as healthy if you were only using the bran!
-each box makes approx 3 batches - feel free to add things like nuts and dried fruits - these are a good way to start the day.
As a comic once said - muffins are an excuse to have CAKE for breakfast!!! I am all for it... 3 cups unprocessed wheat bran 1 cup boiling water 1 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup butter 2 1/2 cups white flour 2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 2 eggs, beaten 2 cups buttermilk Directions: Mix 1 cup wheat bran with 1 cup boiling water; stir and let water absorb into bran. In a separate bowl blend sugar and butter. Measure and combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Combine the moist bran with the beaten eggs, the remaining 2 cups of bran, buttermilk, blended sugar-butter mixture, and the flour, soda and salt. When preparing to bake, preheat oven to 400 degrees.
