Thunder Muffins

This is inspired by my sister-in-law, who used to make Thunder Cakes from All-Bran. I have gone one step further by adding to prunes to it too, to help with ..... erm .... digestion. No points for guessing how this dish got its name.

You may not want to add any sweetener as the prunes are quite sweet in themselves. The muffins are not completely syn free, but at only quarter of a syn for the 12 of them, it is hardly worth mentioning.

The muffins come out really quite moist and gooey, especially if eaten while still warm. I am sure you do not want to be kept informed if they have the desired effect.

Makes 12 muffins
Six of the Cakes are Syn Free on Original Days*

*Providing you use the cooked prunes AND the All-Bran as your two Healthy Extra Bs

70g All Bran
1 tub fat free natural plain yogurt
sweetener to taste
2 tsp cinnamon
250g ready to eat pitted prunes, chopped
2 eggs, separated
½ tsp baking powder

Soak the All-Bran with the yogurt, around half a cup of water and the cinnamon and sweetener if using, for a couple of hours or more. Stir well – the mixture should be mushy.

Whip the egg whites until stiff. Whisk the yolks with the baking powder, then stir in the All-Bran mix and chopped prunes. Gently fold into the egg whites, and spoon into 12 greased muffin cases. Bake at 200°C for 15-20 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.
