this is my moms recipe and my favorite muffin!
2 cups All Bran
2 cups boiling water
Pour boiling water over all bran and let set
2 cups sugar
1 heaping cup shortening
cream together well in a very large mixing bowl.
4 eggs, slightly beaten
1 qt. buttermilk
4 cups all bran
Add to creamed sugar and shortening. Mix thoroughly. Add all bran mixture (bran and water). Mix well.
5 cups flour
4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
Add to preceding and stir together well. Fill greased muffin tins about 2/3 full. Bake at 400 degrees for 11 minutes for small muffins or 14 minutes for larger muffins. This recopied makes one gallon of batter, which makes about 7 dozen muffins. This stores really well in a container in the refrigerator for up to six weeks! I sometimes make a batch and pull it out and bake a few at a time. Super good with butter on warm muffins or jam! Hope you enjoy!
