My photo
Having a large Scottish heritage that migrated from England into Canada to Maine and other states. I am from a family of 9. Six girls and 3 boys. My dad died young when I was about 8 years old. I have 4 children and 3 step children with the great joy of 20 grandchildren. I worked in financial institutions and accounting for many years. Now I sew and make lots of stuffed animals and many other things. I'm a grandmother that has years of sewing in a wide variety of catagories. Photography has become one of my passions over the years. Nature that God has presented us is one of the greatest to photograph. My family and pets hate to see me with a camera in my hands. The bug took hold at Christmas time taking photos of my children in front of the tree. That became a tradition. Then you have family gatherings, vacations, grandchildren and the list could go on.

Raisin Bran Muffins

These raisin bran muffins have become a must to make each week. They are hubby's favorite and they are very expensive when you buy them at the store now. They were bran. Well, I went online and searched for a receipt and came up with this one. It is fantastic! I vary it a bit depending if we have applesauce or not. Great with or without applesauce. Cooking time varies. Just experiment until you get what you like. I double the batch to make them larger.

Post Raisin Bran Muffins Ingredients
1 1/4 c Flour
1/2 c Applesauce
1 tb Baking powder
1/3 c Brown sugar; packed
1/4 ts Salt
2 tb Margarine; melted, (can use
2 c POST raisin bran cereal
1/3 c Dried apricots; chopped,
1 c Skim milk
Cinnamon sugar; (*optional,
1 Egg; slightly beaten
Instructions for Post Raisin Bran Muffins
Heat oven to 400 (375 if you are making extra large muffins, as I do).
Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.
Mix cereal and milk in a separate bowl and let stand 3 minutes.
Add to the cereal and milk, the egg, applesauce, sugar and margarine.
Add to flour mix, with the apricots if you are using them, and stir
until just moistened. Pour into sprayed muffin pan, (sprinkle with
cinnamon-sugar, if desired) and bake 20 minutes until golden. Makes 12.
NOTE, if you like the extra large (Texas-sized ) muffins like I do, bake at 375,
for 20-30 minutes (closer to 30, but check at 20). Makes 6
The tops meet when cooking and I thought I did something wrong but that just happens. Let your mix set for a few minutes before putting into pan.
