Bran Muffins

I recently discovered my kids love bran muffins.  I made them for them to snack on, an they devoured them.  

Here's the recipe.  It's super easy. 

3 cups bran
1 cup water
1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 eggs (beaten)
2 cups buttermilk

Boil water and add 1 cup bran.  Stir and set as side to cool for about 3-5 minutes. Add butter to melt.  Mix in brown sugar.  Mix in eggs. 

Mix flour, 2 cups bran, salt, and baking soda together in a bowl.  Add buttermilk (don't stir). 

Combine wet bran mix, with flour/milk ingredients. 

Put in muffin cups and bake 400° for 15 minutes.

Makes 35-40 muffins (depending on the size)

Sour Cream Biscuits

We found this recipe when watching Paula Deen, and fell in love with it.  It's great for filling people up quickly.  It's a basic delicious and disgustingly rich side.  


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sour cream


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease miniature muffin pans.

  • Mix the flour and butter together, add the sour cream, and blend well. Place spoonfuls of the batter in the muffin pans. Bake until golden, 8 to 10 minutes.
