for sheelagh- ICE BOX MUFFINS

this recipe came from my godfather's mom. i'm sure it's been around for forever though. the really great thing is that you can keep the batter in the fridge for almost forever and it almost seems to improve with time! my mom used to make this all of the time when we were kids and then she'd only make a few muffins at a time- that way they were always fresh. toss in a few dried cranberries and it gets even better.

1 cup margarine
1.5 cups honey
4 eggs, beaten
1 quart buttermilk
4 cups All Bran/ Bran Buds
2 cups loose, real bran
1 cups boiling water
5 cups flour
5 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
a half a box of raisins or dry cranberries

pour water over the real bran. cream margarine and honey. add the beaten eggs, buttermilk, and bran cereal to the shortening mixture. add flour, salt, and soda. add the dry fruit and fold until moist.

bake at 400 for 15-20 in greased muffin tins.


Mmmm. Thanks for sharing this. I was just looking for a muffin recipie yesterday and this sounds so good. Now I've just got to find some time to make them since I actually have all these ingredients.
