Oven- Ready Bran Muffin recipe (one toasted) from Hodgson Mills unprocessed (Millers Bran) box. The muffins are lighter than the Raisin Bran Muffin recipe that uses cereal and less sweet with more of an earthy bran flavor. The crumb is also more delicate and actually better the following day.

The multi grain recipe used a different method of proofing the yeast directly with tepid water, possibly the water was not warm enough and/or there was not sufficient rise time to the dough compared with my usually recipe. Recycled the bread to bread crumbs. The rye loaf is better using the usual easy mix method and adding 2 cup rye flour. The wheat and rye flours don't seem to absorb liquids as quick as the white flours and need more kneading with the dough hook. Plus I am used to making bread using the easy mix method and having the dough rise quick enough to bake bread within 2 hours or so.

Not exactly a soft pita as some were rolled too thin and were more like a pita chip than a bread. Have to bake more for practice. none the less they are still delicious

rolling out the dough and trying to take a picture at the same time. I use white cornmeal on the counter instead of flour to prevent sticking and it (as Lydia says) adds another layer of complexity. also the same for making pizza and bread.
