Welcome to our second year of married life and learning about life, love, homeownership, food (after all that is the way to the heart - right?!), parenting (of 2 puppies), PREGNANCY and everything in between!
This is one of those recipes that just reminds me of grandma's house. It's so simple and makes for easy mornings! You make a huge thing of batter once and put it in the fridge and it lasts 6 WEEKS! Then you just bake however much you want and it's perfect for quick mornings!
What you need:
1 - 15 ounce package raisin bran cereal
5 cups flour
2 teaspoons salt
5 tespoons baking soda
3 cups sugar
4 beaten eggs
1 cup melted shortening
1 quart buttermilk
Pur raisin bran in very large mixing bowl.
Sift together 5 cups flour, 2 teaspoons salt, 5 teaspoons baking soda and add to cereal.
Add 3 cups sugar, mix all dry ingredients together.
Beat 4 eggs and add to mixture.
Add melted shortening (1cup) to mixture and buttermilk (1 quart/4 cups). (tip: if you don't have buttermilk, add 1 Tablespoon of white vinegar per cup of milk)
Mix all ingredients together.
Grease and fill muffin cups 2/3 of the way full. Bake 12-15 minutes at 400 degrees.
All leftover batter can stay in fridge (covered) for up to 6 weeks! Enjoy!!
