    Bran and Blueberry Muffins“I’ve had this recipe for years, it was given to me by a friend of my mum, who lives in America. Just mix the dry things in one bowl, the wet in another then stir the two together with a fork. By the time you have made the coffee they are practically ready, great for a healthy Sunday breakfast”, Lisa Faulkner
