Have Discard? Make Sourdough Oatmeal Golden Raisin Bun Muffins

These little bun muffins are good! They really are little sourdough yeast-raised buns baked in muffin tins for ease. The bun muffins are soft but substantial, and they are studded with sweet, juicy golden raisins. An oatmeal streusel tops the bun muffins and gives them a little crunch as well as extra flavor. When I have it, I like to use candied pineapple in the bun muffins as well as raisins for an extra sweet-tangy taste. The bun muffins are simple to make, and you don't have to knead them--just stir them vigorously! A great breakfast treat, the bun muffins also are great with dinner or for a snack with your tea or coffee. Enjoy!

Sourdough Oatmeal Golden Raisin Bun Muffins -- Makes 12


1 cup of sourdough starter/discard

1/4 cup of canola oil

1 large egg

1/4 cup of milk

1/4 cup of dark brown sugar

1/2 cup of flour

1/2 cup of quick oats

1/2 teaspoon of grated orange or clementine zest


In a large bowl, mix the starter/discard, oil, egg, milk, and brown sugar well. Stir in the flour, oats, and zest until fully incorporated. Loosely cover the mixture and let it sit for at least an hour. I usually let mine sit for four hours or so (my kitchen is cool). When you're ready, add:


3/4 cup of flour

1 teaspoon of salt

1 cup of golden raisins or 1/2 cup of raisins and 1/2 cup of candied pineapple


Stir the mixture well. It will be stiff (I use a wooden spoon to stir it). Spritz 12 muffin wells with non-stick cooking spray and divide the batter/dough evenly among the wells. Top the batter/dough with the streusel topping (see below), and let the batter/dough rise until it just crests the top of the muffin tins. This will take two to four hours, depending on the temperature of your kitchen. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake the bun muffins for about 30 minutes or until a pick inserted in a bun muffin comes out with no wet batter attached or a thermometer registers 190 or above.


Streusel

1/4 cup of dark brown sugar

1/4 cup of flour

1/2 cup of quick oats

1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon

4 tablespoons of softened or almost melted butter


Mix the streusel ingredients well (you can use the same bowl you used for the bun muffin batter/dough) and sprinkle the streusel evenly on top of the bun muffins.
