Bran Muffins

Eighties Muffins

My college roommate, Allegra, used to make these bran muffins.   This was in the eighties when bran muffins came into fashion.

They are absolutely delicious. The recipe makes a very big batch so that you can keep them in the freezer and always have them on hand.

Bran Muffins

1 cup bran
1 cup boiling water
½ cup scant oil
2 cups raisins
Set aside.

2 eggs, beaten
1½ cups sugar
2 cups buttermilk
2½ cups whole wheat flour
2½ tsp baking soda
¼ cup molasses
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
2 cups bran (3 all together)
¼ cup wheat germ

Mix all ingredients and put in the refrigerator overnight.  Full muffin cups.

Bake at 400˚for 20 minutes.

They are great to freeze, then you can pull one out at a time and microwave them for about 45 seconds.
