Ooh, wow! I wasn't completely sure about this one but they came out great, with that coarse texture I'm used to with grocery store english muffins. I'm afraid I burned the crap out of the first several, but after I scraped the black part off they were wonderful inside. I ended up baking the last several in the oven and they came out perfect. I did use one cup of whole wheat flour because I love it. I will make these again for sure. Thanks a bunch, Bev.
These are wonderful and so easy. Instead of using the wheat bran I sub oat bran and then dust them with wheat germ. I will make these again and again. Thanks for posting.
