360 grams Barton Springs Mill Marquis '00' or Standard AP or Premium AP

120 grams  whole milk 

180 grams water 

56 grams melted butter

25 grams sugar

8 grams salt

1 packet active dry yeast


Warm the water and milk in the microwave to 85 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and stir until the dough becomes a single mass. Transfer to a lightly greased bowl or surface and knead it for until it begins to become smooth, about 8-10 minutes. 

Transfer the dough to a lightly greased bowl and cover. Set in a warm place and allow rise until puffy but not necessarily doubled in bulk, about 1 to 2 hours. 

Punch down the dough and transfer to a lightly oiled surface. Shape the dough into a log about 7-8 inches long.

Place in a lightly greased 8 1/2" x 4 1/2" loaf pan, cover the pan loosely with lightly greased plastic wrap, and allow the bread to rise for about 60 minutes, until it's domed about 1" above the edge of the pan.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until light and golden brown and interior temperature is 190°F. Cool on a rack before slicing. Enjoy!

Ruby Lee
Tastiest Flour for Bread

My family and I had a bread tasting at home with different flours from the mill. Ruby Lee came out on top with Yecora Rojo as a near tie.

Rouge de Bordeaux Great in Sourdough Bread

I added some Rouge de Bordeaux whole wheat to the most recent sourdough bread I made. It was DELICIOUS! Superb results.

Mancan Buckwheat
In the Refer

I haven’t used this flour yet…in storage [temporarily]. I will make a batch of buckwheat waffles with thick-cut oats added on top while cooking, eat a couple of squares and freeze the balance for another day [not to far off]. Also going to make some noodles…Can’t wait to taste the rich taste of this grain.


Beautiful, creamy grits with little flecks of red...
Great flavor!! Thank you all so much!!!
