    lynnski / LA's Note:

    This is an adaptation of a recipe from the Upper Crust Bakery, in Cambria Pines, California; which is located just off the Central California Coast, near Hearst Castle. I visited the bakery several years ago, and had these bran muffins. They are the best I've tasted and are healthful to boot. There were so many requests that the recipe was published in the local newspaper. Don't be too put off by the long list of ingredients; the batter can be kept refrigerated for about a week before you bake them; and it does make 24 muffins. Also they freeze well. The're worth the extra effort for a special occasion.

      Outstanding muffins!! So moist and scrumptious, I'm very impressed. I love that you can leave the batter in the fridge overnight (or longer) to have fresh muffins all week. This also helps to plump up the raisins. I admit I left out the dried apples and used extra raisins. Can't wait to try this in the fall with some dried apples from our tree. Thanks so much for a 10-star bran muffin. (note: I pulled these at 18-20 minutes- they are best not over baked).

      Great bran muffin. Mine made more like 3-4 dozen. I also used 1 c. apple pie filling in place of the applesauce and chopped apples.
