I recently returned from a vacation that included time spent at Knottsberry Farm and their hotel in California. In the morning my husband and I went to the breakfast buffet in their restaurant. One of the flavors of muffins was bran. I have never tasted such wonderful bran muffins. I inquired as to what made them so moist and was told that they had applesauce and molasses in them. Would any of you readers have a recipe for bran muffins including these 2 ingredients. If so, would you kindly share it with me?

Thank you so much.

  • 1 cup bran
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 packages. yeast
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 6 cups flour


Combine bran, brown sugar, shortening, salt, and boiling water in large bowl and let stand until cool. Add yeast to warm water. Add yeast mixture to cooled bran mixture. Add eggs and flour. Cover this and let rise until double.

Knead on floured board and make into rolls or loaves. Rolls are baked in greased muffin tins and bread in greased 8x4 inch loaf pans. Let rise again and bake at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes for rolls and 25-30 minutes for loaves. Brush tops with melted butter when you remove from oven. Yield: 3 loaves or 4-5 dozen rolls.

Try this. As I am dieting, I deserve I need a treat too, so I add bran to my chocolate ice cream, it is like eating a crushed cone in your ice cream. You'll eat less of the cool stuff.

Combine cocoa, coffee, water, and bananas, and mix in a blender. Add sugar, egg whites, vanilla, and stir well. Sift together oat bran and salt and add banana mixture...
