Recipe by mianbao

Adopted from Recipezaar, February 2005. I have tried this recipe, and intended to alter it. However, as it seems to please some reviewers as is, I will leave it unchanged. I do think people who use this recipe should read the reviews first. I have included preparation and cooking times, but these are only guesses.

I made half the recipe and got 12 small muffins. They are moist. And they were in the oven 20 minutes. They're not too sweet, just perfect. I used only cinnamon, no nutmeg so I used more cinnamon. I didn't have natural bran so I used oatmeal bran. They have a great taste. And I can't taste the molasses. Thanks mianbao :) Made for your win in Bargain Basement tag game
