Strawberry bran muffins

Strawberry bran muffins
 1 cup natural bran
 250g punnet strawberries
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 egg lightly beaten
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup self raising flour
1/4 cup milk
  1. Place bran and 1 cup of boiling water in a bowl.  Set aside for 1 hour, until water is absorbed.
  2. Preheat oven to 200 deg or 180 deg fan forced.  Line a 12 hole medium  capacity muffin pan with paper cases.
  3. Choose 4 strawberries and set aside to use for topping.  Hull and chop remaining.  Add sugar, egg and oil to bran mixture  Mix to combine.
  4. Add flour. milk and chopped strawberries and stir until just combined.
  5. Fill prepared pan.  Slice remaining strawberries length ways.  Lay 2-3 slices on each muffin.
  6. Bake for 20 mins, until muffins spring back when lightly touched.  Cool on a wire rack.
Winner winner winner.  These were delicious and easy and the fussy 3 year old actually asked if he could take one to preschool for morning tea.   

I could not find natural bran so I used All bran instead and as I wanted to cook these for desert I did not soak it for an hour only half an hour but they turned out almost like the picture!!  I got the recipe from the Coles Fresh Magazine.  These are yummy and easy although not budget friendly at the moment with strawberries so expensive!!  They can also be frozen so next time I make some I will do a double batch!!

Linking up for some Monday Open Slather with One Mother Hen.

  1. Strawberries are getting expensive now. My kids eat a whole punnet in 5 seconds flat. I've pinned the recipe for later, maybe I can use up some of the fruit in my freezer!
