    Hi Don, thank you for this article. Although I like to bake, I have never tried using any other flour than plain or self raising. After reading your post here, I would like to say that I like the sound of your bread and liked all the tips you provided for using whole wheat flour. You make it sound very easy to use.

      Thanks for the comment.  All-purpose is fine for plain white bread, and self-rising is a must for biscuits.  But I like the heartier flavor of whole wheat for bread most of the time.  Check back again!

    Thanks for sharing – really informative post. It seems that more and more people are discovering their gluten intolerance. Do you know if there are any gluten substitutes which would enable a baker still use whole wheat dough?

    Where the whole wheat bread with honey recipe is concerned, which would be the vegetable oil that you would most recommend as a substitute for the olive oil?

    Thanks in advance, and best regards,

      If you’re going to bake bread and you suffer from gluten-intolerance, you really need to change your whole outlook.  You’ll never be able to use wheat flour of any kind, as it naturally forms gluten when you handle it at all – much less kneading it on purpose.  Best to stick with other, non-gluten forming flours, like rice or potato.  The oil I like for bread is canola (rapeseed in Europe.)  It leaves almost no taste of its own, but provides fat to improve the taste and texture of your bread.
