Leiths: Raisin Bran Muffins

   Another recipe from my Baking workshop at Leiths, these raisin bran muffins are really 100 times better than they sound. Imagine an Elvenses bar, but better and so quick and easy to make. This recipe can also be found in Leiths Baking Bible. I'll be baking more of these pretty soon, such an easy breakfast to grab on the go!

Makes 12

     200ml semi-skimmed milk
     115g butter, softened
     100g All-Bran cereal
     115g golden caster sugar
     2 eggs, beaten
     170g self raising flour, sifted
     1 teaspoon baking powder
     Half teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
     Half teaspoon ground cinnamon
     140g raisins
     Honey and oats for decoration
  • Preheat the oven to 190 degrees and line a muffin tin with 12 paper cases.
  • Warm the milk and butter in a saucepan on a low heat until the butter has melted.
  • Place the cereal and sugar in a bowl, stir in the butter and milk.
  • Allow to cool to lukewarm before adding the eggs.
  • Add the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon and raisins. Try to incorporate the mix well without stirring more than 20 times - other wise the muffins will become tough.
  • Divide between the paper cases and bake for 25-30 minutes. 
  • Cool on a wire rack before glazing with honey and adding a sprinkle of oats.

  1. My belly just rumbled looking at these lol. I'm not a cinnamon lover though, can you really taste in in these? X


    1. They're so good, I just can't get enough of them! I don't think the cinnamon is strong at all but try swapping it for ginger? I think it would work without as well x

  2. I was trying to explain the deliciousness of elevenses bars to m boyfriend the other day- I think I will have to try this recipe!!!! :)

    1. You NEED to make these then, they're even better trust me! Let me know how you get on :) x

  3. Look a proper treat, look forward to trying one. x
