One of the best bran muffins you'll ever taste made with creamy sour cream.

Ingredients:
1/2 cup (1 stick/4 oz/113gm) unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 large egg, beaten lightly
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup dark molasses
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup miller's bran (available at natural foods stores, specialty foods shops, and some supermarkets) OR any unprocessed wheat bran

Instructions:
In a large bowl with an electric mixer cream together the butter and the brown sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy, beat in the egg, the sour cream, and the molasses, and stir in the raisins (optional). In a bowl whisk together the flour, the baking soda, the salt, and the bran, add the mixture to the sour cream mixture, and stir the batter until it is just combined. (The batter will be lumpy.) Spoon the batter into 12 well-buttered 1/3-cup muffin tins and bake the muffins in the middle of a preheated 400°F (200°C) oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until they are golden brown and springy to the touch. Turn the muffins out onto a wire rack and let cool completely.

Makes 12 muffins.

Fabulous! Finally the bran muffin I've been yearning for! I only had plain yogurt so substituted that for sour cream, and I used one ounce molasses and one ounce maple syrup instead of the quarter cup molasses.

Very good muffin. My daughter loves the blueberry and I made ginger for myself. Will be making again. I also used yogurt and may even try whole wheat flour next time.
