While living in Iowa I was given this recipe by a dear friend Shanna. It was her husbands Grandmother's recipe. It is delicious! I never thought of a bran muffin as delicious, but - it really is amazing. The batter last for 6 weeks in the refrigerator which is nice, but it doesn't last that long in our house! Perfect Breakfast! Serve it with a Banana and Hot Tea - YUMMY!
