Whole Wheat Flour Quick Tip

Whether it’s whole wheat or white whole wheat flour, you are going to have to be careful while using it when baking.

This flour is tricky and sticky. If you are making a batter, ensure that you DO NOT OVERMIX. The best way to make certain you don’t is to only mix until you can’t see any loose flour. If its all blended, STOP. I avoid using a hand or stand mixer. Use that “I LIFT” arm strength and mix it by hand.

What will overmixing do?

If you overmix your batter, whatever is being made will be edible…. it just won’t be that good. The product will be stiff and without fluffiness. It may be too dense, especially in the case of bread.

    Good tip. When I bake a cake or cupcakes I always remind myself not to over mix. By the way your banana bread or whatever you made looks amazing. Where’s the recipe 🙂
