Basic Bran Muffins

This recipe serves: 
1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cup bran
3/8 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of salt
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 large eggs, well-beaten
1/2 cup raisins or dates, optional
Cooking Instructions
1. Prepare muffin pans by greasing with oil or cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. In a bowl, mix together the flour, bran, sugar, baking soda and salt.

3. Mix the well-beaten egg with the buttermilk, and then add to the flour mixture. Fold in the raisins or dates. (Be careful to keep the mixing to a minimum -- a light stirring which will leave some lumps is fine. The dough should not be mixed to the point of pouring, but should break in coarse globs.)

4. Bake in the prepared muffin tins for about 25 minutes.
