Six week muffins

As Thanksgiving is coming closer, you'll probably appreciate anything that saves time, so I thought I'd share this recipe with you. It's called Six Week Muffins because I was told that it can keep in the fridge for up to six weeks. However, I never tried that - they are so good that they are always gone within two days . . .

1 box (15 oz) bran (with or without raisins)
3 cups sugar
5 cups flour
5 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup oil
4 eggs, beaten
1 quart buttermilk

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in oil, eggs, buttermilk. Use immediately or store in a covered container in a refrigerator for up to six weeks, using as needed. (Do not freeze).

Fill greased muffin tins to the top and bake at 400 degrees F for 18 to 20 minutes.

My host mother gave this recipe to me when I stayed in the US for the very first time, and it's become a traditional family recipe for us - perfect to take along to parties and picnics etc. . . .

And don't forget that you can use the time you saved for your favorite books!


  1. Fun recipe, Beate, and looks easy. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I like that the muffins have bran in them. I'll have to keep this recipe and try it sometime.

  3. Yes, it's super easy and super quick. We make them all the time, and they're always a favorite!
