To aid you in whipping up delectable whole wheat desserts, check out these two relatively new types of whole wheat flour. They’re both available from Hodgson Mill, Bob’s Red Mill and King Arthur.
Whole wheat pastry flour Ground from soft white wheat, which is lower in protein and gluten than regular (red) whole wheat, this flour is fine and light—ideal for tender scones, muffins and quick breads.
