Refrigerator Bran Muffins

My mom made these frequently when I was a kid. The batter can last up to 6 weeks in the refrigerator and you can bake them as you need them. Most Saturday mornings she we would have a group of friends over for coffee and these were always a hit.
If your family likes them double the batch.
