Mormon Muffins

I recently visited my aunt in Ogden UT. We stopped by The Greenery for these muffins. After some diligent hunting we found their recipe. These are almost like a yeast bread when fresh baked. Serve them the Utah way with honey butter. Prep time is approximate. May be shorter.

    Actually you can find the recipe right on the greenery restaurants website. You're supposed to let the batter sit overnight to soften all the bran before baking.

    Just like mom's! (And yes, she is Mormon so she makes authentic momo muffins :) Delicious, and definitely soften the cereal with the hot water and I like to serve with the honey butter recipe #37988. It makes alot of muffins but that is good because I could not stop eating them!

    These muffins have a good flavor and texture. They would have been better had the instructions explained the boiling water should be poured over the cereal and let set while mixing the remainder of the ingredients. I will probably try these again with that adaptation.
