Testing Recipes

In planning for Christmas gifts, I have decided to test the "jar mix" recipes. I would hate to give one as a gift not knowing how they turn out. 

This morning we made a batch of the bran muffins. I used ingredients I had on hand...including bran cereal I picked up at Dollar Tree. I used to make a similar muffin when the name brand cereal was first all the rage. This worked well.

I am estimating I used about half the box.  

I,of course, altered a few things. I have some coconut sugar lingering in the pantry because my family just isn't crazy about it. I've decided to work it into muffins and so far they haven't noticed. I also didn't  have golden raisins, so plain old "brown" had to do. 

The proportions I used were:

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp of baking powder
2 cups of bran cereal
1/2 cup of coconut sugar
1/2 cup of raisins
1 1/4 cups of milk
1/4 cup of oil
1 egg, slightly beaten

400F for about 20 minutes.

This makes an even dozen muffins.
