Raisin Bran Muffins

I have lost my camera but these really are quite cute and taste great. I made 24 mini and 12 mini loaf and 12 mini cake out of this recipe! If you just do regular muffin size I think you would get at least 16. These can be mixed and then the batter but in the fridge for later so if you only want to bake a few just pop the batter in the fridge and it will be fine for about a week. You can also bake them all and freeze them post baking so you have options.

I did make these for breakfast one morning along with cinnamon rolls when I had tons of family here and they were very popular

2 cups boiling water divided
3 cups bran flour or may be called wheat bran
2 1/2 c ap flour
1 1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c butter
2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs
2 c buttermilk
2 c raisins

Mix 1 cup boiling water and 1 cup bran and set aside
Mix 1 cup boiling water and the raisins and set aside

cream the butter and sugar add eggs mixing after each addition.
add flour,salt and baking soda and the 2 cups of bran that are left
add milk and DRAIN the raisins after they have been sitting in the water and mix them.
put in the pan(s) of your choice and bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes mini muffins are only 20 minutes so keep on eye on things for different pan sizes!
