Tricks to Whole Wheat Flour
What is the trick to using whole wheat flour in white flour recipes? I want to stay completely away from white flour.
I’m leaning towards this myself. Because each product (cookies, bread, soups) vary so much on how to interchange wheat, the easiest answer to your question is to find a good cookbook on using wheat. I just found an oldie-but-goodie at a thrift store last week for $1.
Cup for cup, whole wheat flour can be substituted for white flour. However, the texture and quality will be different than what you are used to. I’ve found that grinding hard white wheat makes fabulous flour that I can substitute in baked goods with little notice from my keen family members.
Below I’ve listed some book suggestions available through www.amazon.com. I own this first book, and it is very helpful for utilizing wheat.
