Author Notes: When you get right down to it, I think a bran muffin is my very favorite breakfast baked good. Fresh from the oven, drenched in obscene amounts of melted butter, there's just not anything any better. I've been making this one for close to 50 years; it's evolved a bit over the years.Kayb
