I love easy recipes which don’t have to be followed to the exact specifications. I prefer the general jist of it so that I don’t feel like whatever I am making is going to be a complete fail because I by mistake didn’t smooth the measuring cup. Some may say it is a lazy way of cooking but my feeling is that cooking should not be a stressful activity and what works for some doesn’t work for others.
Talking of which, I used to make these delicious bran muffins on a regular basis and then for some reason stopped and have recently started making them again. Both our boys just love them to bits, which is great for me as they are quick, easy and healthier than traditional cakes. They do still contain sugar and raisins which is not match for fresh fruit and veg but are still healthier than a cake topped with icing.
You can also store the mixture for up to 30 days in your fridge which means you can bake as many as you need and won’t feel like they are going to waste as you don’t have to bake them all at once.
