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


  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.
