"From Carole Lombard days, the eggs were probably smaller back then so keep that in mind, this seems a pretty wet muffin, just saying i made these and yes more flour was needed do 1/2 c at a time this recipe was made up in a time when they did not measure flour exactly they probably did half and half on the flour"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Cream butter and sugar add pinch salt, add eggs.

Step 2

Add molasses (spray cup with Pam to make molasses easier to measure) and currants; beat until fluffy. ( i used all bran and soaked them in this for 15 minutes )

Step 3

Sift hard flour and baking powder; add bran flour. Add to the creamed mixture and bring to the right consistency so batter will drop rather than flow from a tablespoon.

Step 4

Bake in a moderate oven 350 degrees until done, about 10 minutes for most muffins. make sure you spray pam in muffin tins.
