Dean and Deluca - Bran Muffin
I recently had the best bran muffin I'd ever had from Dean and Deluca and wanted to know if anyone has a similar recipe to theirs. What was most noteworthy was how moist it was and the complexity in flavor.
Never had a D&D bran muffin but, after trying & discarding many recipes, these are the only bran muffins for me, as they are moist, richly flavoured, & contain lots of real bran but NOT the usually accompanying nasty sandpapery texture. I usually halve the recipe and bake 6 at a time. Recipe from mother of Canadian downhill skier Steve P, circa 1980.
