Tips, Notes, and Variations
- One manufacturer of white whole wheat flour is King Arthur brand.
- To avoid compacting the flour while measuring it, spoon the flour into the measuring cup instead of digging it down into the flour. Then run a flat knife over the top edge of the cup to scrape off the excess.
