Homemade Bran Muffins

I got this recipe from my aunt. Not only do the muffins taste just incredibly awesome, you can just bake up what you need and save the rest of the batter in your refrigerator for up to 5 weeks! :) It makes a lot, and if you're obsessed with bran muffins like I am, you'll be in heaven for about a month!

Of course you can always cut the recipe in half, or just make your muffins a bit bigger if you'd like. I'm in love.

Homemade Bran Muffins

2 cups 100% bran (I used All Bran Original cereal)
2 cups boiling water

mix above ingredients and set aside

1 cup Crisco
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. salt

creme the last 4 ingredients together

add 1 qt. buttermilk, 5 cups of flour, 5 tsp. baking soda, 4 more cups of bran to the 4 ingredients above that have been creamed together. Mix well.

Add the bran/water mixture that had been set aside to the batter. Mix well.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Batter can be stored for up to 5 weeks!
