    Finally cool enough to bake here in the PNW-been waiting all summer to bake something with this flour.
    It was so worth the wait though!
    Had bananas that weren't good for just eating so I used this flour and made some banana pecan streusel muffins-OMG-so tender and fluffy with loads of flavor!
    Tonight I made cornbread with it and YUM-even though I left it in a couple minutes too long it's still moist and tender.
    This is my new favorite quick bread flour! Thank you so much for rescuing this for us Barton Springs Mill!

    beautiful flour

    we make pancakes most mornings, and this is such a beautiful flour to use.

    Loved this

    I included some in my whole wheat yeast bread at about 1:2 ratio and the bread has a nice texture and is very yummy, especially when toasted

    Wonderful company! Exceptional flour. Quick to fulfill order. On a previous order, one of the 4 bags of four had a small hole in it and was leaking flour. I mentioned that in my response, yet also stated I will be ordering more in the future. The company, without my request, sent me a replacement. I was surprised (sorry, my history with this company is just beginning; but from what I have since heard, this is typical of their continued excellent dedication to present this exceptional product in the best light). Even before the replacement bag was delivered, I signed up for one of their baking classes. I am happily and eagerly awaiting continued, mutually beneficial interaction, and can whole heartedly recommend (and have!) Dripping Springs Mill.
