Refrigerator Bran Muffins

I originally found this recipe a few years ago on allrecipes.com but when I tried to find it to give credit to the original source I couldn’t find it anymore! Oh well. I tried. These muffins are delicious. I like them best if I’ve let the batter sit at least a couple of hours before I bake them. It helps the flavors mesh together better.

 

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 quart buttermilk (1 qt = 4 cups … You’re welcome 🙂 for some reason I have to look that up every time. Using regular milk works great too)
  • 1 cup vegetable oil (I like using ½ c vegetable oil and ½ c unsweetened applesauce)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 cups raisin bran cereal
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  •  5 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt

 

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs, buttermilk, oil and sugar.
  2. Stir in cereal and raisins.
  3. Sift together flour, baking soda and salt; add to egg mixture. (I’m sure sifting helps but I don’t own a sifter SO needless to say I’ve never sifted this before. I just kind of mix the dry ingredients together.)
  4. Stir just until all ingredients are moistened.
  5. To bake, gently stir batter; fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

This recipe makes about 4-5 dozen muffins. You can bake them all and eat them right away OR freeze them OR keep the batter in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
