Raisin Bran Refrigerator Muffins

Yum
Raisin Bran Refrigerator Muffins. Mix up the batter tonight, bake as many as you need for breakfast tomorrow.
Mawie (my grandmother) gave me this raisin bran refrigerator muffins recipe years ago and it's certainly a keeper. I mixed up a batch of batter yesterday afternoon then, this morning, baked up a half dozen muffins for the two of us. Hot, fresh, delicious!

Don't they look good?

The refrigerator muffin batter keeps well in the refrigerator for two weeks, or store it indefinitely in the freezer.

It's okay to mix the batter and bake right away, but it's much better to chill the batter for at least an hour before you bake.

With the make-ahead batter, this recipe is an easy way to have fresh-baked muffins on any busy morning. Or bake up a whole batch to feed a hungry crowd.

Mawie's Raisin Bran Refrigerator Muffins

1 1/2 c. sugar
2 1/2 c. flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 qt. (2 cups) buttermilk
2 eggs (slightly beaten)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 c. vegetable oil
3 1/2 c. Post Raisin Bran cereal

Gently mix all ingredients together in a large bowl, then cover and store in the refrigerator. When you're ready, spray muffin tins with non-stick spray (or use paper-lined cups), fill cups about 2/3 full, then bake in a 425 degree oven for 12-15 minutes, until golden brown.

Makes about 2 1/2 to 3 dozen muffins.   

Thanks for pinning, yum'ing, and otherwise sharing!

  3. Susan, I used to make muffins very similar to these many years ago, using a recipe I've long since lost. Thanks to you, I can make them again! Sharing this on Pinterest.

    1. Margaret, I lost a lot of recipes with our house fire. Fortunately, this is one that we had included in a family cookbook so I was able to get a copy again. Of course I could have asked one of my aunts - I think everyone in the family bakes these. So glad you can make them again, too! (Appreciate the pin!)

  4. I love bran muffins. I'm not supposed to have wheat, but I do cheat, so I may try these.

    1. I'm not sure there's a gluten free version of raisin bran muffins, Barbara, but perhaps you'll be able to tolerate these or figure out a work-around. Hope so! Thanks so much for stopping by!
