In an effort to encourage the use of more whole grains, I’ve been posting all of my favorite whole wheat recipes.
I’ve been baking with whole wheat for forever. Maybe even a little longer than that. So, we are used to the flavor and texture and really enjoy it.
That said, I find it is a tough sell to some of my kid’s friends. I’m amazed when they turn their nose up at the whole wheat bread I use for sandwiches. I want to say, “Don’t your parent’s love you?” or “Haven’t they read a blessed thing about the benefits of whole wheat?” or “Aren’t you a little old to be so picky?”
Ok. So I do think it. But I always end up making them something else with a smile.
And, apparently, a bit of judgment on the side.
If whole wheat is a hard sell in your house, there is one key thing you can do to make sure that you get the best results. Measure your flour correctly. This really does matter when you are baking. Baking is more science than regular cooking is, so you need to have as close to exact measurements as possible to have a successful recipe! Here is a little clip to show you how to measure flour correctly:

Just in case you’re thinking it: I’m not sure what’s up with the weird eyes I make. Nerves? Jeesh.
Anyway, I’d love to hear from you if this makes a difference in your baking!
