Tiny black spots?

October 14, 2010 - 6:24pm -- Nicholas McRae

During the first rise, my dough developed tiny black spots all over its surface (I have not cut in to see if it's on the interior as well)  It looks as if I'd kneeded a bit of finely ground black pepper into the dough, but this time (cutting corners) I didn't add any special ingredients.  Has anyone else seen this?  Is it hazardous? Mold?
