Best Bran Muffins


I received this recipe about 30 years ago....it makes a very large bowl. I now make this and freeze them in the paper cups and then bake as I wish to eat them.

Bran Muffins
Ingredients: First
4 cups al bran cereal
2 cups quaker bran
2 cups boiling water
1 tsp. salt
Mix the first four ingredients together. Then add 1 quart buttermilk and let cool.

Ingredients: Second

2 cups white sugar
1 cup margarine or butter
4 eggs

In another bowl cream 2 cups white sugar and 1 cup margarine or butter. Add 4 eggs and cream together.
Ingredients: Third
5 tsp. baking soda
5 cups flour

In another bowl mix the baking soda and flour together.
Then mix the flour mixture(Third) alternately with butter and sugar mixture (Second) into the first mixture. Add 1 cup raisins.
Put into greased muffin tins or muffin papers and bake in pre-heated 400 F. oven for 20 minutes.
This bater will keep for 2 weeks in frig. It freezes well in the muffin papers.
Place muffin tray with muffin mixture in freezer, when frozen place in zip lock bag. Then you can bake how many you would like.

I like all the recipes you've posted. Brown sugar in pastry is interesting, I'll have to try it. And I really like the idea of freezing muffin dough in the cups to bake later, I'll definitely try that.

With only the two of us baking a whole batch of muffins is just too many. So I tried freezing them and it works great.
thanks for the comments.

I only like bran muffins I find in Canada. I've been living in the States a long time and their muffins are more like cake. I was delighted to see the name of your muffins and that you're Canadian but the photo looks like an American cake-y muffin. I'm looking for a recipe of a dark brown bran muffin with umpf. Do you have a recipe for that?

Thanks!
