In Village Vista by Kristin HammettLeave a Comment


  • 4.5 cups all purpose flour
  • 4.5 cups raw unprocessed bran
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla


Melt butter and sugar together. Then stir all ingredients together in a large bowl. Spread in a greased jelly roll pan. Bake 30-35 min 350*F. Should be nicely brown and feel done to the touch. Let cool for 5-10 min. Cut into “fingers” and turn on their sides. Pack loosely between 2 pans. Dry for 3 hours on 175*F . Can also add nuts, cinnamon, chocolate chips, raisins, etc.
