Mom's Bran Muffins

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by cookalot 2

This recipe is at least 50 years old. Mom made these muffins for us, and I now make them for grandchildren. It uses basic ingredients such as molasses and wheat bran. It is a moist, light and tender muffin. I double this recipe.

Cookalot#2, these were JUST what I was looking for. The molasses and brown sugar are a perfect amount of flavoring (you don't need the vanilla). The muffins baked up full-bodied and I got 12 as the recipe stated. Thanks so much for sharing your mom's recipe. look forward to trying more of your recipes. Roxygirl Roxygirl
