Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Fried egg and garlicky greens biscuit sandwiches

    • Zosia on October 03, 2014

      I'm not certain what went wrong, but the biscuits barely rose and at 14 minutes in my oven were over-baked. Too thin and crisp to split apart for a sandwich (they were a cross between a cracker and a biscuit), I just served them on the side of the mound of sauteed spinach with fried egg on top. The flavour was fine - the whole wheat was very pronounced - but could have used extra salt. I did not mill my own flour, and used ingredient weights and metric volumes provided.

  • Blueberry amaranth muffins

    • Zosia on October 03, 2014

      I quite liked these but not everyone appreciated the rather "seedy" aroma and flavour of the amaranth. The muffins were tender and not too sweet with the flavour of the maple syrup coming through. The spicing was a little too subtle and probably could have been doubled. I substituted whole wheat pastry flour for the arrowroot and sorghum flours. I did not mill my own flour and used the ingredient weights and metric volumes provided. These took an extra 4 minutes to bake in my oven.

  • Berry cobbler with oat dumplings

    • Zosia on July 13, 2016

      Lovely way to enjoy summer berries - not too sweet and quite delicious. Precooking the fruit was an extra step that was worth the effort; once baked, the juices weren't too runny and the dumplings/biscuits didn't get soggy. I used half spelt flour when I ran out of the oat.

  • Oatcakes with maple bananas

    • Kitchengeek on November 26, 2017

      Easy and delicious. This is a go-to breakfast.

  • Pita bread with emmer flour

    • Kitchengeek on September 10, 2017

      Needed more than the stated flour (another 30 g or so). These are good, but did not puff out like pita. This may be because the oven had to preheat for longer to really get to 500. // Tried again and left them thicker, and I preheated the oven for about 40 minutes before cooking. Still good, still did not puff out.

  • Kamut English muffins with quick blueberry ginger jam

    • JoD on October 22, 2015

      I didn't make the English muffins but we did make the quick blueberry ginger jam and served it with meringues & whipped cream. Yum!

Have you heard? Milling at home can be less expensive and healthier than buying pre-ground flours! Much of the flour that is sold in grocery stores has been stripped of its nutrients and has extra ingredients and preservatives added to prolong shelf life. Not only that, but some flours, like almond, can run as high as $15 per bag! There has to be a better way.
There is with The Homemade Flour Cookbook. Erin Alderson will explore the different ways to grind flour including electric and non-electric grinders, food processors, blenders, and even coffee grinders, making it easy for any do-it-yourself homemaker to have fresh flour whenever needed.
Try out great grain recipes like Cheddar Rosemary Farro Scones, Zucchini Feta Empanadas, Einkorn Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls, and Black Pepper Pasta with Goat Cheese and Pesto. There are also dozens of Gluten-Free recipes. Check out Cheddar jalapeño quesadillas with quinoa tortillas, Berry Crisp with Oat Dumplings, or Buckwheat Dutch Baby with Maple Cherries! There are even recipes for legume, nut, or seed flours. Flatbread with sun-dried tomato dip and Feta and Curried Red Lentil Dip are just a few of the recipes that you'll make with your own hand-milled flour!
