Improving Recipes | Whole Wheat Flour
This week I decided to cut back on the white flour and throw in some brown. I did half white and half whole wheat with one of our favorite bread recipes. We eat way too much bread in our house. All my kids would be perfectly content to sit and have bread and water for dinner. Really. But that creates some issues that you really don't want to hear about.
here. Even with half whole wheat flour the kids gobbled it up without complaint and Eric actually said it tasted even better than usual. Yeah! Success.
our favorite Strawberry Rhubarb Crunch and replaced all the flour with whole wheat flour and only made half the amount of topping the recipe called for. (That takes out a LOT of butter!) It did end up being soupier than Eric likes, but it was super yummy. My brother was over for dinner and he had seconds and he isn't a big fan of sweets. Success!
