A friend passed along this recipe after finding it in Marjorie Pay Hinckley's book "Small and Simple Things." I will be forever thankful and you will be too, if you try it.
Refrigerator Bran Muffins
2 cups boiling water
6 cups Kellogg's All Bran Cereal
1 cup shortening
1 1/2 Cups sugar
1 quart buttermilk
5 cups flour
5 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
Pour boiling water over bran cereal in a large bowl. Add shortening. Stir to mix well. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop spoonfuls into muffin tin and bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
The best part about this recipe is that it makes TONS! I use half the batter to bake about 24 muffins. The rest of the batter goes into an airtight container and into the fridge for muffins on demand. Sister Hinckley said she did the same thing and her batter would keep in the fridge for up to two weeks.
Happy Monday and happy baking, friends!
