Kitchen Parade Extra: Five-Week Bran Muffins ♥

Bran muffins that you mix now and bake later, much laterSo this week I mixed up some muffins to serve hot from the oven when family visits over the holidays. (What? Mixed muffins now? for serving in three weeks? Yes!) Talk about make-ahead recipes!

The batter keeps in the frig for five weeks. Along the way, bake fresh muffins (as many as you want, even just one or two) any time. The recipe is from a 2002 Kitchen Parade column, published today online for the first time. So check it out, it's my recipe for Five-Week Bran Muffins.

The recipe is just one in a collection of recipes for Christmas in Kitchen Parade's Recipe Box.
