Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin, or line with paper muffin cases. In a small bowl, mix together the wheat bran and buttermilk. Set aside to soak until thickened, about 10 minutes.
In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to blend together the dark brown soft sugar, vegetable oil, egg and treacle. Stir in the bran mixture. Combine the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt; stir into the batter until just moistened. Mix in sultanas. Spoon batter into muffin cases, filling 3/4 full.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until the tops spring back when lightly pressed.
