Author: Canadian Living

Adapted from The Little Cookbook for the Great Outdoors by Linda Darling and Suat Tuzlak (Rocky Mountain Books, 1984), these pancakelike muffins can be large or small. Carry dried fruit — raisins, apricots, cherries, cranberries — in a separate package.

  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped dried fruit
  • 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup bran
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup skim milk powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Method

Pour 1/3 cup (75 mL) boiling water over fruit; let stand for 5 minutes.

In bowl, combine flour, bran, wheat germ, sugar, skim milk and baking powders.

Combine egg and 2 tbsp (25 mL) of the oil; stir into fruit. Add to dry ingredients, mixing well.

In skillet, heat remaining oil over medium-low heat. Drop 2 tbsp (25 mL) batter per muffin into pan, flattening slightly and shaping into rounds. Cover and cook for 4 to 6 minutes, turning once, or until browned and cooked through.
