Foodie Friday: Using Whole Wheat Flour

*Tips*:  Using Whole Wheat Flour

  • Use when in recipes your family already likes, so it is not totally unfamiliar and you know your family will eat it.
  • Try wheat in desserts first--who can durn down a cookie?
  • Don't feel you have to use 100% whole wheat flour. Half white and half wheat gives excellent results.
  • when substituting whole wheat flour for white in your favorite recipes, remember:
  1. Wheat flour is heavier than white flour and needs more leavening.
  2. In yeast breads, use more yeast and let it rise longer.
  3. In recipes that use baking powder for leavening, increase baking powder by 1 tsp. for each 3 cups of whole wheat flour.
  4. Recipes using baking soda do not need to be adjusted.

Here is one of our families favorite breakfast recipes and alterations to use items from your food storage and subsitiute Whole Wheat Flour.
