The Breakfast of Champions

Mother's intuition has paid off once again.

Whipping up a batch of Marry Me, Matilda! Muffins - a six-week-refrigerated-batter - last weekend was a smart move on my part.


It's been a hustlin' bustlin' week, and having the convienience of a quick pop in the oven and bake has been the perfect solution to frenzied mornings.

I'll be revisiting this old friend of a recipe again, to be sure.


Hungry, anyone??
Marry Me, Matilda Muffins
1 - 20 oz box Raisin Bran
3 - cups sugar
5 - cups flour
5 - tsp baking soda
2 - tsp salt
**optional spices**
4 - tsp cinnamon
3 - tsp nutmeg
1 - tsp ground cloves
****
Mix all of these dry items together in a large bowl until well blended. In a second bowl, beat
4 - eggs
1 - qt buttermilk
1 - cup oil
until well blended. Pour over dry mix, stir until all ingredients are moist. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop into muffin papers in muffin tin (or grease your muffin tin liberally). Bake 15 - 18 minutes at 400 degrees. Tops will spring at a light touch in the center of the muffin when done.
MMMMMMmmmmm! Mmmmmm!
As for the remainder of the mix, pour into container with an airtight seal, such as a tupperware bowl, etc. This mix will keep 6 weeks in the refrigerator. But it won't last that long!

Yummy! I've made these before and the kids love them. But I use Bran cereal because they don't like the raisins.

I made these this morning. Thanks for the recipe. It makes quite a bit, but I'm sure it'll all get eaten. The boys really like them.
