Recipe Ingredients for Molasses and raisin bran muffins

1 cup raisins
1 cup water
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup molasses
1 egg
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp kosher salt
2 cups wheat bran

Recipe Directions for Molasses and raisin bran muffins

  1. Put paper muffin liners in the cups of a 12 cup muffin pan. Lightly spray the paper with nonstick cooking spray or brush them with a light coat of canola oil. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

  2. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the raisins and the water. When the water begins to boil, reduce the heat to low and let the raisins simmer until they are plumped and soft, about 5 minutes.Transfer the raisins and their cooking liquid to the work bowl of a food processor and process until the mixture becomes a rough puree. With the motor running, stream in the oil, the sugar,the molasses and the egg.

  3. In separate bowl,whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, then stir in the wheat bran. Add the raisin mixture all at once to the dry mixture and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Do not over mix.Distribute the batter evenly in the prepared muffin cups and bake until the muffins are browned on top and springy to the touch, about 20 minutes.

  4. Cool the muffins on a rack for at least 10 minutes before serving
