Well, I thought I would share a recipe that is perfect for any Nester...

Refrigerator Raisin Bran Muffins. It's a big batch of muffin mix that stays in your refrigerator for 6 weeks. Just scoop out the amount you need and make muffins for 1 or muffins for 40!! There are so many different versions of this, but this was my mom's.

The recipe calls for 15 ounce box, but they seem to be only 20 ounces or larger.

Here's a quick tip...

According to the box, 1 cup is about 2 ounces. So if you need 15 ounces that would be about 7 1/2 cups give or take.

Refrigerator Raisin Bran Muffins

4 eggs
2 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 quart buttermilk
5 cups flour
5 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
15 ounce box Raisin Bran Cereal...I've seen about 6-7 cups in other recipes

Mix all ingredients together and store in an air tight container in the refrigerator. Store for at least 6 hours before making the first batch of muffins. Batter keeps for 6 weeks in the refrigerator

Grease muffin tin or use paper liners. Pre heat oven to 375*. Bake muffins 15-20 minutes.

Hope you enjoy this recipe. If you have any other great Nester type recipes, let us know in the comments or maybe link to one you've posted on your blog.

Happy Nesting,


  1. This is one of my favorites. And I love the King Sooper brand of raisin bran best and I think it comes in 15 oz boxes.

  2. I've never seen this before. I love the idea of having batter in the fridge! Fresh muffins whenever you like with only a little prep - fantastic. Trying to find a low sugar flakes cereal is going to be the only problem. Might try replacing the cereal with oatbran and raisins and see how it goes.

  3. Love it! Especially that it stays good for such a long time!

  4. Looking forward to trying this! Thanks for the recipe.

  5. Mmmmm looks yummy!

    Saying Good-bye to son and daughter-in-law, they leave for Singapore tomorrow, for 18 months...

    maybe I will make these to cheer myself up!!

  6. Thanks Karen for the great recipe but mostly thanks for the wonderful tut for grabbing the buttons I'm now able to do just that and intend to have your link on my page as well thanks again

  7. Love your recipe, I need to make some soon : )

    Here's a refrigerator muffin recipe that I got from my Aunt:
    1/3 C Crisco
    1 1/2 C brown sugar
    1 C sour cream
    2 eggs(beat one at a time)
    2 tsp cinnamon
    1 tsp nutmeg
    1/2 tsp cloves
    1 tsp vanilla
    2 1/4 C flour
    1 tsp soda
    1 C nuts
    Keep in refrigerator covered for 5 weeks.
    Bake 15 min. @375 degrees in muffin cups

  8. My Mom regularly kept a batch in the fridge... I love them, though I usually bake the whole batch & freeze them, then we would microwave one or more whenever!
