    Microwave 'muffins' (also Attack and Conso)

    Jo suggested I post my muffin recipe - it's actually just a version of my bread recipe but as it's in the microwave I can make them daily as required.

    **check your Oatbran quantities** the ones given here are for 1 day's portion on Cruise / Conso


    • 1 TB wheat bran
    • 2 TB oat bran
    • 1 Egg
    • 1 TB Quark/Fromfrais
    • 1 or 2 TB yoghurt
    • 1 TS baking powder
    • Flavouring

    Mix well, it should be gloopy but not liquid and distribute into 8 silicone cupcake/muffin cases. Arrange in a circle on the turntable and microwave on high for ~4min.

    Turn out quickly onto wire rack (they are steaming) and give time to cool. The longer you leave them out the drier they get - I prefer mine quite moist... Quite a spongey texture.

    Flavouring:
    Sweet: scant TB sweetener, in addition if liked: a sprinkling of cinnamon, 1/2 ts of vanilla essence. You can also use vanilla or toffee yoghurt for 'built in' flavouring.

    Savoury: a tiny pinch of salt (or they are too bland), and I like fresh chives in them.

    I have to add that I usually have them sweet, and eat them at coffee time when everyone else is tucking into cakes and biscuits.

    they are also nice split in half and spread with Quark, or Philly EL etc, whatever you fancy.

    To bake in the oven: Bake 15 mins at 180C Fan

    Which version do you prefer the taste and texture of, Anja? I do my muffins in the oven, but am tempted to try microwaving next time.

    You don't mention separating your eggs and beating your whites, so I presume you don't? (perhaps why your oven version didn't rise as much?)

    Jo,

    yes I just mix it all up - really it's a 'galette in a mould with a bit of raising agent' or 'oatbran bread in a small mould'. I'm not sure which I prefer, taste wise they're quite identical ;-) I supposed I'm more used to the Microwave ones now, they are a bit moister too...
    Yes I can't usually be bothered with anything that requires incorporating whisked egg whites (especially not first thing in the morning) I'm afraid so I have not yet tried making your muffins... As baked goods go they rose just enough really.

    The baked ones look a bit nicer, especially if you're trying to pack a non-obvious lunch! Photos coming up when I get the chance.

    I'll definitely try yours, for a change, but for us breadless Cruising souls, something more "bready" (and less moist) is a real joy!

    I know! Isn't it brilliant! Something nice to last you through the whole day.

    It's very similar to the recipe I use and so should make 8 good-sized muffins.

    Yes, on day's portions and it makes 8 for me - that's how many moulds I can fit onto the microwave turntable. I now have the baked vs microwaved pictures attached below. I know which ones win on looks - but the microwave ones win on convenience! They actually rise about the same, just in a different fashion which makes the baked ones look a bit smaller!

    Oh and this is my special version with a bit of chopped apricots in it - everyone LOOK AWAY please

    *looks away so that she doesn't see the lovely apricotty bits!*

    Wow, they look quite different to the version I've been making. Mine look more like soggy Yorkshire puds! I must try your recipe. I have to agree that the oven-cooked ones do look very appetising, much more so than the microwaved ones.
