When I was just home from the hospital after having Edie a friend of mine dropped off some homemade bran muffin batter and told me, “You’ll get a lot of dinners these next few weeks but sometimes you just want a hot muffin to go with your weekday breakfast or lunch”. It was so genius! We kept the batter in the fridge for a while and my mother and I made fresh bran muffins for a few days in a row. Sometimes we added a few berries in too. I made some more batter a couple weeks later to keep the hot bran muffins coming! Also, here’s a favorite bran muffin recipe I like from Ina Garten.

So funny – a good friend is about to have her third baby and I’m planning on dropping off breakfasts – granola, muffins, fruit salad. Thoughtfully, everyone focuses on bringing dinner but sometimes those early mornings are when you really need a treat! Love the idea of keeping the batter in the fridge!
