This makes a lot with the intent you refrigerate a large portion to bake during the coming week. Thanks to dear sister Cindy for finding this old favorite and sending it along. Cindy adds the fruit and nuts just before baking to prevent any additives getting soggy.
Cream together in large bowl:
1 stick butter (1/4 c.)
1 1/2 c. sugar ( I used a tad less)
2 1/2 c. flour
2 1/2 t. baking soda
Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture alternating portions with:
2 c. butter milk (I used soured regular milk)
1 c. Nabisco Bran cereal
1 c. boiling water-let stand 1 minute. Add to above mixture and blend well.
2 c. Kellogs All Bran
1/2 t. salt
your choice of nuts, seeds and dried fruit or fresh blueberries.
Spoon mixture into papered muffin tin.
Bake at 400* 15-20 minutes until lightly browned.
