I have been making this recipe sense the 1970's. I was
given the recipe when I lived in Utah. Everyone loves it. It is similar to your
Muffin recipe Nancy.

Long Time Muffins
2 cups boiling water
5 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup shortening
2 cups sugar
4 cups All-Bran cereal
2 Cups 40% Bran Flakes cereal
1 quart buttermilk
5 cups flour
Add soda to boiling water, set aside and let cool. Cream shortening and sugar;
add eggs and mix well. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix together. Add
cooled water and soda mixture; mix until blended. Keep covered in the
refrigerator for as long as two weeks. Cook fresh muffins as desired.
TO BAKE: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fill muffin cups tins with paper muffin
cups inserted, 3/4 full. Bake for 20 minutes.
NOTE: May add: chocolate chips, nuts or blueberries when ready to bake.
Powdered buttermilk does not have to be mixed
separately. I just add the powder with my flour and the water with the my other
liquids and let it mix in the batter.
