  1. In a large bowl, mix together the eggs, white sugar and butter until smooth. Stir in the buttermilk and coffee. The mixture will look curdled. Combine the flour and baking soda; stir into the coffee mixture. Blend in bran cereal. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes or up to a week.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a muffin pan or line with paper muffin liners. Fill each cup with 1/4 cup batter.
  3. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top springs back when lightly touched. Cool in pan before removing.

Absolutely AWFUL!! Very dry & tasteless. I checked ingredients to see if I had missed something. Everything exactly as given in recipe. Can't even give this one star!

The recipe is good. However, I had to make some adjustments. I used Fiber One and safe to say, the first time I made it, I had the same results as the raters before me. This time I used HOT coffee (boiling hot) and soaked the fiber cereal in the coffee until it was mushy, then followed the rest of the recipe. Good Luck!

These muffins were very dry and bland. They had a horrible flavor and I followed the recipe exactly. They also didn't rise. I do not recommend this recipe.

I didn't care for these very much. The flavoring was good for bran muffins but mine turned out really dry. I wonder if they would have been more moist if oil was used instead of butter. My 1 and 3 year old kids liked them though.

These muffins were dense, did not rise, and I would not make them again. Needs more liquid (much more). Disappointing.

Easy to make. A little time consuming, yet if you are making more than muffins, this recipe definately helps with other kicthen tasks. I used flavored coffee and it gives the muffins a small hint of flavor.

After reading all of the low rated reviews and trying the recipw myself, I tweeked this quite a bit. I love the idea of using coffee in the ingredients! I would have to give this one a 2 star rating, sorry. But it put me on the fun road of creating just what I was looking for! I think I'll end up posting my tweeked version! Thanks

I've made this recipe a few times now and really love these muffins! I use Greek coffee, and oats instead of bran. I also add a little extra buttermilk (or plain yoghurt, depending on what I have available), vanilla essence, and dried cranberries or raisins, and whatever nuts I have. I don't leave the batter in the fridge but bake them straight away. These muffins are awesome for breakfast or an afternoon snack with a cup of fresh coffee! Thanks for sharing :)
