    All they need is a big slathering of some sort of icing.
    I can't help it.....

    Here's the original recipe:
    Fruity Bran Muffins

    1 8 ¼ oz. can crushed pineapple, drained
    Milk plus pineapple to equal 1 ½ cup
    1 ¼ cup flour
    2 cups bran cereal
    ¾ cup brown sugar
    1 tbsp. baking powder
    ½ tsp. salt
    ½ tsp. cinnamon
    ¾ cup grated carrot
    1/3 cup oil
    1 egg
    ¾ cup raisins
    ½ tsp. vanilla

    Mix well. Bake 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Makes 18 muffins.

    However.... I usually use a pint jar of mock pineapple (made from zucchini) in place of the crushed pineapple (and don't drain it at all) & roughly double the rest of the ingredients, don't add the milk unless it just looks too dry, sometimes use All-Bran - sometimes use Grape Nuts, sometimes use applesauce instead of oil (I like that better), sometimes use craisins or even dried cherries in place of raisins.... It's a pretty flexible recipe. Don't think I've ever made them the same twice - LOL!

    Sharp cheddar bacon cheeseburger with cottage fries made from the little taters in the bottom of the bucket no one would peel.
