These Might be Bran MuffinsPosted Friday, October 5, 2012, at 9:09 AM
Six bran beauties in search of a photographer
1 ¼ cup of bran or high fiber grain
Pre-heat your oven to 400 F. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin. While the oven is heating mix the bran, milk, raisins, and vanilla in a medium sized bowl and let stand for a couple of minutes. Mix in the egg and the oil and beat with a fork. Mix in the remaining ingredients. The batter should look like cake mix batter; thin, if necessary, with a tablespoon or two of milk.
Bake the muffins for 20 to 25 minutes. You'll know they're done if an inserted knife blade comes out clean. Let the muffins cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan. Shelf-life: about 30 hours.
As we said, you should feel free to experiment. For example, you can substitute any boxed cereal for the bran, and exchange (or combine) the raisins for any other dried fruit. I added a ½ cup of coconut to the second batch I made and...it was pretty good.
So: These are bran muffins--or any kind of muffin you desire!

Ubiquitous is a word that means "everywhere." We all know that there are lots of pigs in the world. Some good pigs like Wilbur in Charlotte's Web...and some bad pigs too, like the pigs in Orwell's Animal Farm. I have a picture of a beautiful Yorkshire hog diving off a board into a pretty county pond. The pig is smiling. He is a good pig. Good pigs are everywhere. Happy, friendly, useful pigs. And then there are the bad pigs. Remember when you mother admonished you? "Don't be a pig!" she'd command. She was telling you not to be selfish, and to think of other people. Your mom (and my mom) hoped that we would consider the feelings and rights of other people. This blog is about good things and bad things: good and bad things happening in Carroll County, good and bad books, good and bad food. Thanks for taking a look.
