Restaurant Bran Muffin Recipe

Secret Restaurant Recipe No Longer

A "most requested” recipe. If refrigerated, the batter will keep 4 weeks (cool!)

Preparation Time: Approximately 20 minutes. This restaurant recipe will result in 12-16 muffins depending on your pan.


  • 4 1/2 cups Kellogg's Original All Bran (DO NOT TRY FLAKES. This is the ONLY cereal that works)
  • 1 1/3 cups boiling water
  • 3 cups buttermilk
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 3 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 3 3/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt


Instructions: (Follow precisely please)

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  • Combine the All Bran and boiling water and stir well
  • Let stand
  • In another bowl, combine the buttermilk, eggs and oil, then add the sugar
  • Combine and sift together the flour, baking soda and salt
  • Combine All Bran mixture and liquid ingredients
  • Add flour mixture and stir just until flour is incorporated (Do NOT over mix or the muffins will not have the right texture)
  • Bake in greased muffin pan in pre-heated oven at 400 degrees F for 18-20 minutes

Make CERTAIN your oven temperature is correct or muffins will not bake right. To test for doneness, insert a toothpick. If it comes out “clean,” your muffins are done.
