5 tsp baking soda 1-3/4 cups boiling water 1 cup margarine 4 eggs 2 cups brown sugar 4 cups all bran 2 cups bran flakes 4 cups buttermilk 2 tsp salt sifted together with 5 cups flour 1 cup walnuts/pecans chopped 2 cups sultanas (or dates)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F, prepare pans. Dissolve the baking soda in the water then let cool. Beat the margarine with the sugar until pale and creamy then add the eggs, one at a time, alternately with the sifted flour and salt. Stir in the all bran, bran flakes, buttermilk, fruit and nuts (nuts are optional). Spoon into pans and bake for 20 minutes or until cooked. Leave to cool then store in the refrigerator. Makes about 64 medium or 35-40 large muffins. Sultanas are golden raisins.
These muffins will keep for weeks (they say 6!) in the refrigerator. They are perfect for a quick snack. Spread them with light cream cheese rather than butter or just eat them alone. Warm them in the microwave for breakfast.
