Is something I am starting to consciously use more in an effort to increase fibre in our diets but most especially the children's diets. As I introduce it and as I have a neat little stock pile of White flour I am combining both in recipes.
I always mix up a double batch of pikelets and freeze half, sometimes more as they are quite filling and 1/2 will not always be eaten in the first sitting.
So for this batch I used 50% wholemeal and 50% white flour. In others if the recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups I have gone for 1 cup of wholemeal with 1/2 cup white. So far everything has turned out quite nicely, is more filling and the Children have not noted a difference in baked goods. Introducing wholemeal pasta is another story not quite as successful with them. lol
Oh and I know if you haven't been reading my blog for a long time you are thinking did she say waffles ... ?? No I make up pikelets in the waffle maker, which not only saves time as I don't have to flip to cook each side, but also eliminates the need to cook them in butter so then I feel Ok to eat them with Cream and Golden Syrup with my Afternoon Cup of Tea. ;)
Ahhh well seriously this pleasure does not really come with much guilt.
You will find the original Pikelet recipe I posted on my blog last year. Try switching out half the Flour and substitute it with wholemeal Flour and tell me what you think.
Any tips from those of you already baking with wholemeal flour?
