You have never had a bran muffin until you have had these bran muffins. What they have in the stores doesn't even come close the this one. It's moist and tastey and nothing about it says cardboard, bran muffin!
The other amazing thing about these wonderful muffins is that you can keep them in battered form up to six weeks. At least that's what the recipe says. Mine never really last that long but I like the idea. I especially like the idea when we have company coming. I can mix it up and keep it in the fridge until company arrives. In the morning I just put them in the oven and by the time you get the table set, coffee on and newspaper opened, everyone is up smelling muffins baking- and they are ready! Presto primo muffins!
