This week, I really can’t believe what my Mom shared with our readers! When she sent me the email with the recipe, I asked her if she was sure! We didn’t even include this family favourite in the cookbook! But, she said she was happy to share it, and if it’s popular we might put it in a future book. So, this week, I’m pleased to present my Grandma Broad’s Bran Muffin Recipe.

Grandma Broad's Bran Muffin Recipe

What you’ll need:

  • 4 Tablespoons Margarine
