Mixed seed topping

I've fallen in love with the seed mix DonD used in his  Pain aux Cereales. blog here  The millet really stays really crunchy.  For a twist, I added a bit of caraway too.  I recommend it highly.

I regularly make Pita Bread with seed topping. Really makes a nice addtion.

I use a mix of sesame seeds, golden flax seeds, and sunflower seeds. Brush the loaf with water using a pastry brush and spinkle on the seeds just before popping into the oven.

What beautiful loaves! I often use sesame seeds, flax seeds, or pumpkin seeds as a topping but hadn't thought to combine them. I really like the idea of using millet on top as well.


Oatmeal works really well too.
