    Refrigerator Raisin Bran Muffins

    How many cups in a 15 ounce box of raisin bran cereal?

    My family has been making these muffins for years. It seems that finding a 15 ounce box of raisin bran cereal is a bit hard. No worries! You might ask how many cups in a 15 ounce box of raisin bran cereal?  Well I think I figured it out. For this recipe I used 7 1/2 cups and it worked perfectly!

    How to make Refrigerator Raisin Bran Muffins

    1 (15 ounce) box Raisin Bran cereal (about 7 1/2 cups)
    3 cups sugar
    5 cups flour
    5 teaspoons baking soda
    2 teaspoons salt
    4 eggs, beaten
    1 cup vegetable oil
    1 quart buttermilk

    Mix cereal, sugar, flour, soda and salt in a very large bowl. In another bowl combine oil, eggs and milk. Add the liquid mixture to the dry. If possible refrigerate mixture overnight before using. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full for the number of muffins desired. Bake at 400 degrees for abut 15 minutes. Mixture will keep in the refrigerator for 6 weeks. When making the muffin mix I do look for long expiration dates on the buttermilk and eggs.Store in a covered container in the refrigerator and use as needed.

      I've been making these for nearly 30 years, but with additions: applesauce, pineapple tidbits and lots of nuts, so it makes them into a mini meal that's incredibly healthy. They are great for a breakfast, a dessert, a side for salad, and of course they're portable and go to school, to work, to picnics, and the beach! I can also substitute Splenda for part of the sugar for my diabetic husband. Let me know if you'd like my recipe; I'm happy to share! (It will make 50 muffins, and the batter can be used a little at a time over a week, or bake them all and freeze them.) Best of all, kids love them! I made some and gave them away to my elderly neighbors for an Easter gift in a cute handled bag that I made, and they loved them, too!

        Barbara, would you want to share your measurements? I love your additions. I have substituted half the oil for applesauce or baby prunes before and still delicious.
