One Week Bran Muffins

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by evelynathens

The batter keeps in the refrigerator up to one week, so you can have freshly-baked muffins on your table in next to no time. For variety, add currants, dried cranberries or other dried chopped fruit before baking.

This recipe is going into my keep file for SURE! I had to change a few things. I used 2 cups skim milk and 2 TBS vinegar instead of the buttermilk, which I never have here. I also didn't have any oranges to zest, so I left that out. I always put cinnamon and vanilla in baked stuff, so I added 1tsp of each. These were soooo very moist!<br/><br/>Oh, and I put some crumble topping on them because my mom loves it! Froze 12 of them and left 6 out for her to have in the mornings! Thanks for the great recipe!
