    i have made muffins with this recipe. it helps me to portion better. Just take the end batter and put into 24 muffins cups, with liner to save more calories. Bake for 30-35, if using liners i just sprinkle sugar/cinnamon on top. - 3/2/09

    What you can do - is at day 9 put the starter bag and all in the freezer. When you are ready for "day 10" , remove and let it get to room temperature and then resume with the "day 10" instructions. It has worked very well for me! - 7/26/08

    this bread is a lot of work. but you can reduce the calorie count during the baking of the breadd. you can use 1/2 c. applesause,1/2c. oil, and splinda for the 1c. sugar. I also used nofat milk. i have make this for years. - 6/5/11
