This recipe is a central memory from my childhood of my grandmother's wonderful baking.

Apple and Sultana Bran Muffins (a family favorite)

2 cups wholemeal flour

2 cups bran

1/2 cup sugar

4 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

3 medium apples - peeled, cored and grated

1 cup sultanas

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1 cup milk

100 g butter – melted

2 eggs – lightly whisked

Preheat oven to 200-210C (400-410F). Grease deep patty pans

Place the flour, bran, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, sultanas and grated apple into a large bowl.

Dissolve the baking soda in the milk. Pour the milk, melted butter and whisked eggs into the dry ingredients – mix briefly until all ingredients are combined. Do not over-mix or the muffins become tough.

Spoon mixture into patty tins. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Stand for a few minutes before turning out on to a cooling rack. Keep in an airtight container.
