Yummy Bran Muffins


Last night before bed I mixed up some Bran Muffins. This morning I put a pan in the oven for a fresh yummy breakfast. I wanted to share the recipe with you. This is something I love to have in the fridge so that I can make them whenever we need something a little different for breakfast. The batter can be kept in the fridge for up to 6 weeks.

1 cup Bran Buds
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 cups buttermilk
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp soda
2 cups Bran Flakes

Pour 1 cup boiling water over bran buds and set aside. Mix shortening and sugar. Mix in eggs then buttermilk. Add dry ingredients. Add Bran Buds and mix. Fold in Bran Flakes.

Bake muffins for 15 to 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

Enjoy!

Those look great! I love the fact that you can make the batter and leave it in the fridge!

They are so cute. I love a backyard campout in a tent.

Thanks for your supportive words during the fire. We are doing great now- just waiting for the smoke to clear.

Hmmm. These look tasty, and I'm totally digging the fact that the batter can be 'fridgafied for a while. I'm going to have to try this one soon. Can you put blueberries or nuts in 'em?
