There is a brunch restaurant here called the Apple Cake Tea Room and they are famous for their appetizer Bran Mini Muffins. I have searched all over and I came across this recipe which many say are even better than theirs. Serve them warm with the following homemade honey butter and you will make them over and over again. Enjoy!
