bran muffins

Recipe by

I have had this recipe for over 40 years and loved it when I first found it. I moved several times and thought I had lost it. A few years ago, I found it again and it took some time to find the ingredients, but I did. When I bit into it for the first time today, it took me back to the first time I tried it over 40 years ago. It was a good memory.
