- 4 eggs
- 1 quart buttermilk
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 6 cups (10 ounces) bran flakes with raisins
- 1/2 to 1 cup raisins
- 5 cups all-purpose flour
- 5 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- In a large bowl, beat eggs, buttermilk, oil and sugar. Stir in cereal and raisins. Sift together flour, baking soda and salt; add to egg mixture. Stir just until all ingredients are moistened. If desired, store batter, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. To bake, gently stir batter; fill greased muffin cups two-thirds full. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. (All of the batter does not need to be baked at once.) Yield: about 3 dozen.
Reviews forRefrigerator Bran Muffins
"Made this recipe just as it was written with good results. Was very good."
"These are one of my kids' favorite muffins. I even decrease the sugar a little and they still turn out delicious. I make the whole batch and they eat these instead of cookies for snacks. They are much healthier and filling than a cookie too!"
"I am 43 years old and this is the same recipe that my mom and my grandma has made since I was a little girl. I still remember the big tupperware bowl in the refrigerator with the mix just waiting to be pulled out every morning to make hot fresh muffins for us each morning. I LOVE this recipe, but instead of the additional raisins, I use pitted dates, and I also add chopped pecans (because that is what my mom did). My kids LOVE these muffins, and they taste better after the mix has been in the fridge for a few days."
