Not many people remember that book or the follow up Marcia did, so it's nice to see fellow fans.

The people back home still remember her coming around and in certain shops it's a very popular gift to sell to tourists, especially around Bird in Hand, last I checked.


Oh, I love muffins, especially fresh, hot muffins! I make mini muffins and store them in the freezer for grab-and-go breakfasts and snacks. These would work beautifully for that!


It's so amusing when some cookbooks ask for specific packaged products. (the one that makes me craziest: "chili paste with garlic." Do they even know how many different Asian countries make how many different brands of different varieties of chili paste?) We can add our own raisins, y'know? If they rise just as well after a month, that is some excellent kitchen wizardry!


Bran muffins are my favorite. I prefer them to cupcakes.

When you say "cereal," what do you mean? Something like All-Bran, bran flakes, or the whole bran flakes you can buy at health food stores? I'm asking because my childhood go-to recipe calls for All-Bran, and I don't want my home baked goods to include HFCS.



Karyn, I get whole bran flakes at the health food store or the 365 label oat bran flakes at Whole Foods.

But why are they called 6 week bran muffins? Do they last that long?


Kyla, the batter does. The muffins last about fifteen minutes. :-)


Batter that last six weeks? I'm feeding extended family for Xmas through January 1. This would be one less breakfast recipe I have to worry about. They sound and look fabulous. Thanks!


WOW - these look fantastic, and I love the convenience factor! Oh yeah, I will be trying these for sure...


I love this kind of batter you can keep in your fridge for weeks, and bake at a moments notice. Believe me, private chefs rely on life-jackets recipes, that's a keeper!


My Mom used to keep this around too for those surprise drop in guests and she always made a great impression on her guests too, the main ones being us kids. What a treat to have fresh muffins regularly. I'm going to have to try this version, as I don't think that recipe made the move with me. This will come in handy.


Susan, it's a real boon over the holidays in particular!

cookiepie, try it and you'll be converted! :-)

Zenchef, I'm a fan of all sneaky time-saving kitchen secrets!

Pasticciera, so glad to have posted a recipe close to one you remember... let me know how it turns out.
