  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ¾ cup (175 mL) finely shredded carrots (about 2 medium)
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) vegetable oil

  • ½ tsp (2 mL) salt

Equipment:

  • Muffin tin, greased or paper-lined

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

1. In a bowl, combine bran cereal and buttermilk. Let stand for about 5 minutes. Add egg, carrots and oil; mix well.

2. In another bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and bran mixture; stir just until blended.

3. Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until browned.

Notes

If you want a quick and delicious icing for carrot muffins, boil a small potato and mash it. Add confectioner’s (icing) sugar and vanilla.
