Don’t let the name scare you. It’s not going to cause…disruption. But it is helpful for those who…need it.
This makes a *lot* of muffins; I usually keep the batter in the fridge and make them a dozen at a time.
Get Going Bran Muffins
6c bran flakes, crushed just a bit
2 c boiling water
1 quart buttermilk
1/4 c milled flax
2 1/2 c sugar (can be reduced-I do)
4 beaten eggs
5 cups flour (I use ww)
5 tsp soda
2 tsp salt
2-3 tsp vanilla (I use 3)
Put 2 cups of flakes in a small bowl, pour boiling water over them and let soak while mixing other ingredients.
Mix remaining ingredients in a big bowl (or mixer bowl) Add soaked flakes and mix only ’til blended. This comes nearly to the brim of my KA mixer bowl!
Bake at 400 in greased muffin pan for 20 minutes.
