Baking muffins and learning to wait

My kids are not very good with waiting, so I knew making these muffins would be a challenge, but I knew they where yummy and I thought it would be good for them to practice waiting.  Once you have mixed all the ingredients together you put this muffin mixture in the fridge overnight and then bake your muffins the next morning (the waiting part).  What I really like about this mixture is that you can keep it in the fridge for 30 days and just bake some muffins when you feel like it.  They make a great breakfast muffin.

The Recipe (not sure where it originally comes from think my mom gave it to me).

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 Tbs oil
  • 1 cup oat bran
  • 2 cups digestive bran
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 1Tbs bicarbonate soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 large grated apple (grate skin as well)
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence

Mix the eggs, sugar and oil

Then add the rest of the dry ingredients and the apple and raisins

Mix in the milk and vanilla essence

Place in a sealed container in the fridge overnight

Take out of the fridge place in muffin tray and bake at 180 C for around 15- 20 mins

This mixture can be kept in the fridge for 30 days but be warned it is yummy so it will disappear very very quickly.
