Chocolate-Bran Muffins

Another favorite! My long-ago friend, Elaine McAndrew, gave me this recipe. I think of her each time I make it. Your recipes are part of your legacy. Share them! 

Delicious - and nutritious!

Chocolate-Bran Muffins:

1 - 16 oz. (500 g) pkg double-layer chocolate cake mix
1-1/3 c. water
8 large eggs
1-1/2 c. natural wheat bran (see Sickening Blech! Note)

Preheat oven to 350 deg. F. Combine all ingredients, mixing well (as you would for a cake, rather than for most muffins). Spoon into ungreased paper liners in muffin pan, filling each 2/3 full. Bake about 18 min., or until a toothpick comes out clean. Makes 2-1/2 dozen standard-sized muffins.

From start to finish ... Less than 30 min.!

Note: Serve with butter. These freeze well.

Sickening Blech! Note: One fine day, tra-la-tra-lee, I decided to make these with oat bran (which is pebbly) instead of natural wheat bran, which is flaked. They looked and smelled so-o-o-o delicious that I donated them to a community group before Id sampled them. This is where the “blech! part came in. I later learned that they were awful. Use only natural wheat bran!
