Mormon Muffins

Recipe by River Otter

I recently visited my aunt in Ogden UT. We stopped by The Greenery for these muffins. After some diligent hunting we found their recipe. These are almost like a yeast bread when fresh baked. Serve them the Utah way with honey butter. Prep time is approximate. May be shorter.

Actually you can find the recipe right on the greenery restaurants website. You're supposed to let the batter sit overnight to soften all the bran before baking.
