If you think you don't love bran cereal, try making these yummymuffins! My mom made these all the time when we werekids. They are called 6 week muffins, because you can leave the batterin the fridge for several weeks, and just bake a few (or many) at a time as you need them. With my huge family this recipe rarely lasts longer than a week.6-Week Bran Muffins


6 c. bran cereal

2 c. boiling water

1 c. melted shortening or vegetable oil

3 c. sugar

4 eggs, beaten

1 qt. buttermilk

5 c. flour

5 t. baking soda

5 t. salt


Pour boiling water over two cups bran and let set till water isabsorbed. Stir in shortening. Combine remaining cereal, sugar, eggs andbuttermilk; set aside. Sift together flour, baking soda and salt. In alarge bowl combine all mixtures. Store batter in refrigerator for up tosix weeks.

To make muffins; fill greased or paper lined muffin tins 3/4 full.Bake at 400° for 20 minutes. You can add raisins just before you bakethem if you like, as well as a sprinkle of sugar over the top of eachmuffin to coax suspicious kids to take the first bite.
