This is an old recipe from The Guild Cookbook that I got years ago. It makes the best bran muffins...The batter will get dark on top in the refrigerator but just stir it up and it will last 7 weeks. Use Kelloggs Bran Flakes, not bran buds....I use Crisco Shortening, either butter or regular. You will need 6 cups total of bran flakes.
- Soak 2 cups of bran flakes in hot water and cool. Cream shortening and sugar together. Add eggs, buttermilk and soaked bran flakes to creamed mixture. Sift dry ingredients and add with the 4 cups additional bran flakes to moist mixture. Mix until moist. Do not over mix.
- Keeps 7 weeks in refrigerator.
- Grease muffin tins or use paper muffin cups. When putting into tins to bake, you can add raisins or blueberries. Fill muffin tins 3/4 . Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. These are so handy to have on hand for breakfast muffins -- .
