My Favorite Bran Muffins
After trying dozens of bran muffin recipes, I developed this one myself, and have used it again and again! These muffins are easy to make and convenient, since you can prepare the batter days ahead of time.
When we're expecting company, I pour the prepared batter into tins and have hot muffins ready by the time the coffee's perked.
