So...awhile back I picked up some clearance Bob's Red Mill Organic Whole Wheat Pastry Flour not really knowing what I'd do with it, but it was so cheap, I couldn't pass it up.. Our car is broken and we are broke in between pay checks and have run out of bread and other flour. I thought I could just make bread with this stuff but from what I read it's not good for that. What should I do for a bread substitute? Make pancakes or something? Anyone have ideas or good recipes?
Help! What would you do with WW pastry flour?
Biscuits, cookies, cakes, muffins, quickbreads, pancakes, waffles, corn bread - pretty much anything EXCEPT yeasted breads. Biscuits are my favorite thing to make. I use more ww pastry than any other flour, I think. It has a much mellower flavor and texture than regular ww flour, so it swaps for AP flour in pastry recipes without tasting so health-foody.
Yep - everything except regular old bread. I substitute it for ap flour all the time! (You can do up to half in just about any recipe without noticing a difference, at all, I've found, but I also will sub 100% with no huge differences.....Anything baked around here isn't highly scrutenized: just eaten as quickly as possible.)
