BRAN-MUFFINS-2 - Tasty muffins with bran and dried fruit
This is a simple New Zealand recipe based on "golden syrup".
The muffins make a delicious alternative to scones. We eat
them buttered, either hot or cold. I've added the dried
fruit to the original recipe as it makes them much more

1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups
1 tsp baking soda
4 tsp golden syrup
1 Tbsp butter
6 Tbsp sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup sultanas (or substitute raisins, dates, etc.)
(1) Preheat oven to 425 deg. F. Dissolve the soda in
(2) Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together.
(3) Beat the egg well, then add the milk/soda.
(4) Add the golden syrup and butter which have been
heated together to melt the butter.
(5) Add the dry ingredients and mix quickly.
(6) Put into greased muffin tins and bake for 12-15
minutes at 425 deg. F.
Golden syrup is a very thick sugar syrup that is readily
available in countries where people drive on the left-hand
side of the road, but seems to be rare elsewhere. If the
gourmet section of your supermarket does not carry it, you
could try substituting some kind of honey, such as sage
Any dried fruit can be used instead of sultanas, e.g.
raisins, dates - whatever strikes your fancy.
Difficulty: easy. Time: 30 minutes. Precision: approximate
