I followed this recipe to a tee (I had to guess that step 1 meant to mix yeast in 1/4 cup of millet, add 1/4 cup of warm water, and let sit for 10 mins). I wanted to make a couple breads that night so I took about 3 cups of the batter out and added an egg, about 1/2 tsp baking soda and 1/2 cup of spelt flour (maybe a bit more). I cooked this batter as I would a crepe and the taste and texture was great for the stew I had with the bread. I left the rest of the batter to sit for 24 hours.
When I tried to cook the rest of it the following night, it just did not work and the taste was awful. Again I added 2 eggs and about 2 cups of spelt flour and this thickened up the batter and allowed me to cook them (it takes a while for them to cook so wait until the bottom is fully brown and flip them to brown other side). Even after all this, I still did not really like the taste, but my boyfriend did.
My advice: If you try this recipe and get the same results that I did, try adding some flour and eggs to the batter so that you don’t have to waste it. I also recommend halving the recipe, since, after adding the flour and eggs, it made at least 10 large breads.
