Ice Box Muffins

Discovering my grandma's recipe box, means discovering old favorites, like her Ice Box Muffin recipe. These are the tastiest, most wonderfully delicious Bran muffins you will ever taste. Yes, BRAN muffins. Warm with butter they melt in your mouth.

I can't quite read her handwriting but I think her note says it is originally from Janice Deniston...but I could be totally butchering that name.


  • 1 1/2 Cups Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Shortening (I've experimented with lower calorie options like apple, just ok)
  • 1 Cup boiling water
  • 1 Cup 100% Bran (she specifies Nabisco)
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 1 Pint Buttermilk
  • 2 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 2 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt
  • 2 Cups Kellogg's All Bran


  • Cream together Sugar and Shortening.
  • Pour boiling water over mixture.
  • Add Nabisco Bran, Eggs, Buttermilk.
  • Sift Baking Soda and Salt into Flour and add to mixture, mixing until moist.
  • Add Kellogg's All Bran.
  • Raisins or cut up dates can also be added (yuck).
  • Bake desired number in greased muffin tins 20 minutes at 400 degrees.

Makes 2 quarts.
The mixture can be kept covered in the fridge for up to six weeks.

So...fresh muffins every morning should be easy as cake.
