"DEAR SOS: We had some wonderful bran muffins at the Harris Ranch in Coalinga, Calif. I'd love the recipe if the Harris Ranch people would share it. --STELLA"

"DEAR STELLA: According to a Harris Ranch executive, the baker usually prepares 25 dozen muffins per batch. But he kindly reduced the recipe to make 4 ½ dozen for our readers. Be warned that no baked product reproduces exactly when ingredients are broken down. Be prepared for changes in taste and texture.--Rose Dosti in the LA Times 10/7/93" Recipe by: Harris Ranch in Coalinga, CA via LA Times Posted to recipelu-digest by Badams <adamsfmle@...> on Feb 25, 1998
