Just One Muffin, Please

This morning was such a pretty one - nice enough for Hubbie and I to enjoy our morning coffee on the deck...usually our deck is best enjoyed in the afternoon. And what would have been perfect with that morning drink?? A fresh homemade muffin straight out of the oven...with just a bit of butter melting over the middle!!

Sounds yummo to me - but making homemade muffins always means baking a dozen....and I only need one (or two!) but you can't just make one!! UNTIL NOW.....

I'm tellin' you, I learn the coolest things in blogland!! Jennifer at http://smellingcoffeetoday.blogspot.com/ has such an enjoyable blog - you really should check it out - and not too long ago, I got this recipe from her for Six Week Bran Muffins! Yep, you make up the batter and it keeps in the fridge for six weeks - and you can make as many...or as few..muffins as you need!! How cool is that??

And, trust me - that are delicious!! I even made two last evening when my daughter stopped by on her way home - she loved 'me too!! I did half the recipe because I don't think I have anything big enough to mix up all that batter or store it in my fridge...but halving worked great! Hope you try 'em soon!

Six Week Bran Muffins
15 oz box Raisin Bran Cereal
3 cups sugar
5 cups flour
5 t. baking soda
2 t. salt
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup vegetable oil
1 qt. buttermilk
1 t. nutmeg
1 t. cloves
1 t. cinnamon

Mix dry ingredients into a big bowl. Add liquid ingredients. Keep covered in refrigerator.
To bake muffins, fill muffin cups 1/2 full. (Batter is very thick.) Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes.
Will keep for 6 weeks in refrigerator.
(You can "healthy" these up by using wheat flour and Total Raisin Bran if you really want to.)

  4. Jennifer~
    I just now realized that my previous comment was left under my daugher's name (Abigail). She's started her own blog and forgot to sign out before I got on. Sorry 'bout that!

  6. Hi Jennifer~ So glad you're enjoying the muffins. It's time for me to make a new batch. Wish I had some right now. :-)

  7. That sounds delicious! (although, my hubby loves having the left-over muffins for snacks, so he doesn't mind if I cook a dozen!). When you just cook a couple, do you use a regular muffin pan and put a little water in the unused cups? Just wondering...

  10. I am a little bummed, but it is not as if I don't have a place to live. I think Satan is just trying to make me discontent, and when I start wanting something other than what I have it is really easy for my contentment to fly right out the window. I may have to whip up a batch of those muffins. I have another recipe that is sounding yummy right now too that is similar. Thanks for your encouragement. Jackie
