  1. Hello,
    A decade or more ago I stayed at a B&B in Victoria BC where the owner made bran muffins similar to yours. I had the recipe but lost it recently! :*( What I recall is she didn’t add any water. I’m considering replacing 1 the sugar with applesauce and reducing the molasses to 1 cup, and the cereal to 3 cups total. Question. Should I then reduce the flour to 2 1/2 cups do you think? I’m more of a cook than a baker soooooo. Thank you and much continued success at your B&B!
