My version of the Granary Loaf, with multigrain flakes, whole wheat flour, sprouted finger millet/ ragi flour and an overnight soaker/ sponge.
A somewhat dense but good bread that makes great toast and sandwiches.

Finally made my own Kouign Amann and they're really really good! If you can make (or are game to try) laminated dough, then this one's a breeze and defintiely worth trying. Think of another version of croissants...
Having worked with laminated dough before, and that too in warm and humid tropical conditions, let me assure that the subject/ object of this post is not for the faint hearted. I don't mean that just figuratively but also literally when you consider that about 50% of this yeasted French pastry ...
