As promised, here is my bran muffin recipe.
I was never a bran muffin fan, until someone shared this recipe with me. It will change your life! Not really, but it is good!
THE ULTIMATE BRAN MUFFIN RECIPE
2 cups Bran Flakes
2 cups Shredded Wheat
1/2 cup boiling water
Pour water over cereal.
5 cups flour
2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
5 tsp. baking soda
Sift dry ingredients together.
1 cup canola oil
2 cups sugar
Mix well; Add to dry ingredients.
1 qt. buttermilk
Add to flour and egg mixture. Mix well. Then add cereal.
Fill greased muffin tin or cups 3/4 full of batter.
Before baking, top with a mix of chopped pecans, slivered almonds, brown sugar & old fashioned oats.
Bake 375* 15-20 minutes.
Muffin mix can be kept in fridge up to 1 week.
I usually let the mixture sit in the fridge for an hour or so, just so the ingredients have time to meld together, then I just cook what I need and put the batter back in the fridge for the next batch. The longer it sits, the better it gets.
You'll notice that I did not give amounts for the topping. I just kind of judge the amount. You could ommit the topping altogether, if you prefer.
I hope you try this recipe, and if you do....I'd love to hear about it!
