A recipe from South Africa.

Edna's 30-day muffins

2 eggs
1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar
1/2 cup oil
2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cups wheat bran
1 pinch salt
500 g chopped dates and raisins (just over a pound)
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups milk

Mix the first three ingredients together. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix. This should be a sloppy mixture. Leave overnight in the fridge - it can be left in the fridge for up to 30 days. Fill muffin tin 3/4 full. Bake at 400 F for 10-15 minutes.

The original recipe said 500g cake mix or dates and nuts, but you can't get cake mix in the USA, and I am not fond of nuts in my food, so I use dates and raisins.

These are my husband's favorite breakfast. They keep forever in a plastic bag in the fridge or in the freezer. There is a very similar recipe in a book called RETURN TO CAMDEBOO, where the author, Eve Palmer tell of her sister not having dessert for guests one night, so she warmed these muffins and put a little brandy on them and served these for dessert, I think with cream. they really are wonderful, moist and delicious.
