DIRECTIONS

  • NOTE: I did not calculate prep time in fridge overnight.
  • In a X-LARGE, bowl cream sugar and shortening.
  • Add eggs, salt, baking soda and mix well.
  • Add 1 c flour, stir until just combined.
  • Add 1 c buttermilk, stir until just combined.
  • Repeat this until all flour and buttermilk is used.
  • Add 1/2 cup water and 1 cup Bran cereal, stir until just combined.
  • Repeat this until all the water and cereal is used.
  • * Be sure NOT to overmix*.
  • Let sit overnight in fridge, covered.
  • Take out and stir-the cereal should have broken down and will mix well.
  • Pour 1/3 c batter into muffin tins.
  • Bake @ 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
