Makes about 24
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Cost: $1.45 (that's about $.05 per muffin)
(cereal: .25, sugar: .25, butter: .25, eggs: .20, buttermilk: .30, flour: .20)
1 1/2 C All Bran cereal
1 C hot water
1 1/2 C sugar
1/2 C butter
2 C buttermilk
1 Tbsp baking soda
2 C flour
Combine All Bran and hot water. Let it sit for a couple minutes and then mash it up until it's a paste.
Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, buttermilk, and baking soda. Then add your bran mixture. Then add your flour. (Note: Should you forget to add the flour like I did the first time around and just put the other mixture into your pancake skillet, you will get something a lot like bran pudding, which sounds horrible and which seems so wrong on every level and yet which was pretty amazing and which I haven't quite stopped thinking about yet.)
If making muffins, fill your muffin tin and bake at 375 fo 15-20 minutes.
If making pancakes, just ladle the batter onto a hot skillet and make as your would any other pancake.
