This muffin recipe came from an advertisement for Breakstone dairy products. It is moist and flavorful and not too sweet.

I have been looking forever for this recipe! I used to make it so much I knew it by heart but then stopped and lost in several moves. This is the BEST recipe! You can bake it so the top comes out crispy. I used to walk far out of my way for a muffin that tasted like this when I worked in Manhattan at a bakery called La Croissant - and I made this muffin much the same. I used whole wheat flour to increase the fiber content with no detriment to the texture. THANK YOU for giving me back my bran muffin! It was called Sunday Morning Muffins in the Breakstone Ad - but Breakstone/Kraft - does NOT have it on their website where I have hunted for it far and wide. Thank you Thank you thank you!
