30 Day Bran Muffin Recipe

30 Day Bran Muffin Recipe

This is a recipe that can sit in the fridge for a month and bake when you need it.

  • 8 eggs
  • 6 cups sugar
  • 2 cups oil
  • Beat the above 3 ingredients together.
  • Add the below ingredients and mix well.
  • 10 cups flour
  • 8 cups bran
  • 500g mixed fruit
  • 8 teaspoons bicarbonate of soda
  • Two and half litres of milk

As time goes by the mix does become quite thick and you can add milk to loosen it. I have used this recipe at Simply Deli, a shop we owned a long time ago, and they were a very popular seller. I also them multiplied this recipe up and fed 200 girls at breakfast when I ran a boarding school kitchen. The girls loved them.

Grated carrot or banana can be added to the batch you are about to bake in the morning to ring the changes.
