Sorry for a not so great review but I would probably not make these muffins again. If I did some of the changes I would make would be way less sugar, may be half a cup less and I would soak the bran in the buttermilk to soften it a little. All you tasted was sweet and woody, worm shaped chunks of bran. Ihate to give bad reviews but this one deserved it.
