Lemon Bran Muffins

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min.


1 dozen

Bran cereal lends heartiness to these lemon-poppy seed muffins. For a sweet-tangy finishing touch, drizzle on the confectioners' sugar glaze.


  • 2 cups All-Bran
  • 1-1/4 cups milk
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • GLAZE:
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 3 to 4 teaspoons lemon juice


  1. In a large bowl, combine bran and milk; let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in the egg, oil and lemon juice. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt; stir into bran mixture just until moistened. Fold in poppy seeds and lemon zest.
  2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 400° for 18-22 minutes or until a toothpick comes out with moist crumbs. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Combine the glaze ingredients; drizzle over warm muffins.
