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.

How to Make Refrigerator Bran Muffins

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine bran and boiling water. Add shortening, eggs, and buttermilk. Mix well. Add the remaining ingredients. Stir until combined.
    Put in greased muffin tins. Bake at 375° for 15-20 min. or until done.
    This mixture keeps in the refrigerator for up to 6 weeks. Best if used 3-4 weeks.
    Serve warm with honey or cheese.
  2. (I have a recipe that also adds drained fruit cocktail)
  3. I have recently come across a glaze that is added to the bottom of the muffin tin. I plan to try this next time I make them. Add one Tablespoon of glaze and spread it around the sides and bottom.
