About this recipe: Lisa Faulkner, actress and winner of Celebrity Masterchef, makes Chilean blueberry and bran muffins. "I've had this recipe for years, it was given to me by a friend of my mum, who lives in America. Just mix the dry things in one bowl, the wet in another then stir the two together with a fork. By the time you have made the coffee they are practically ready, great for a healthy Sunday breakfast."
