    Marquis . . .The Loaf

    As recommended on the loaf recipe, the Marquis performed well. Excellent taste, as always…and texture too. Neighbors happy too! Very pleased with the results…more recipes to follow. Thanks Barton Springs

    delicious and reliable

    I got excellent results with this flour using 1/2 and 1/2 with King Arthur Bread Flour in my 30 year old bread machine. It rose reliably, made great tasting bread, and was a good keeper -- kept its flavor and freshness for 5 days, until we finished the loaf. Marquis is going to be a regular use flour for us, and I think it's safe to do 100% Marquis instead of 1/2 and 1/2 next time.

    High Quality Flour

    I received three bags of BSM flour from my wife for Christmas. We saw the segment on Tastemakers and were very intrigued. I bake our household’s bread and am always looking to improve my techniques. The first loaf was baked with the Marquis. It has such a great nutty flavor, and textures I wasn’t getting in other whole wheat flour. I plan to combine it with some more-sifted flour to get a less-dense loaf, and expand its use.
    My wife wanted me to mention that Barton Springs was wonderful to deal with, shipped quickly (and reasonably). We’re fans!
