Today I give you, Grandma’s Buttermilk Bran Muffins. Trust me when I say these are the best bran muffins you will ever have. Light, fluffy, moist, buttery…OMG I want one right now. But I ate them all this weekend. And now I’m suffering withdrawals.
A little story. My sister-in-law and her family were visiting from California this summer. I made these for them the last day before their long drive home. She called me at 10pm from the grocery store (after an 11 hour drive) making sure she got the right ingredients, because she just had to have them.
I told you. They are THAT good.
