Bran & Raisin Muffins

Recipe by: Chef John V., A Good Cooking Recipe!
Serving size: about 18 regular size muffins
Preparation time: about 1 hour 30 minutes


1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup molasses
2 cups raisins
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups bran
1/4 cup melted butter
1 1/2 cups milk


In a large mixing bowl beat the butter and shortening with the brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs and molasses and mix till light and fluffy. Add all the remaining ingredients and fold in; be careful not to over-mix as the muffins will then be tough after baking. Pre heat your oven to 375 degrees F. Refrigerate the mixture for one hour.
