Soften All Bran with Milk and Orange Juice

Let soften for approx 3 mins

to the Bran Mixture, mix well

Fill Muffin Tins - I used large Muffin Papers for the first time 
Love them!!!


An Ice Cream Scoop works well for filling 
Bake 400deg. for 20-25 mins.
I use a Convection Oven at 350 deg. for 20 mins.

I insert a  toothpick into a Muffin and if it comes out clean, they are cooked.








tip:
The secret of good muffins is to stir the batter until the flour is just dampened.
The batter should be lumpy. 
Over mixing causes tunnels and a tough texture.
Perfect muffins are light and tender with rough shiny golden crusts.
