Manface bakes! Not your ordinary Bran Muffin

Excited to bring you the first of many scrumptious baked goods by Manface. He has been talking about wanting to bake these Bran Muffins since I met him–saying they are the best bran muffins on the planet–probably because the recipe  comes from the beloved cafe where he worked in Reno. I interviewed Manface about why he loves this recipe:

“It reminds me of a time when life was simpler. Before cell phones, before facebook.  These ran muffins are the Hephaestus of the pantheon of muffins. They are extreme, not for the light-hearted. Duct tape, a swiss army knife, and one of these muffins would get you through a zombie invasion”.

  • 3 oz Bran
  • 11 oz Whole Wheat Flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 6 oz currants
  • 6 oz dates
  • 5 oz walnuts (but we used almonds because I’m allergic to walnuts)
  • 8 oz chopped pineapple with 1/2 cup juice
  • 2 chopped apples
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup molasses

Add dry ingredients together. Hand mix the wet ingredients together. Mix everything together. Makes ~18 muffins.

Manface says you have to eat them with wads of butter or peanut butter and a short double espresso. I ate mine with lowfat cottage cheese. I think I’ve had enough fiber now to last me days.
