Yecora Rojo, a favorite of West Coast artisan sourdough bakers (i.e. Tartine) was developed by the International Maize & Wheat Improvement Center in Cooperation with the Mexican ministry of Agriculture in Mexico.

It was first received in California in 1970. Yecora Rojo is a standout performer for bread making; it is texturally smooth and lightweight, while exuding buttery and creamy flavors that enhance the end results of any baked item. Out of all the varietals we offer, Yecora Rojo is a Mill favorite, and staff pick!

    Good taste but was not as lofty as I had hoped.

    I used this in a slow rise proofing recipe- a la the NYT minimalist bread method, using 50% Yecora Rojo and 50% King Arthur AP. The bread did not rise nearly as high and was denser and with less loft. The flavor was quite good, very nice caramel color, but none of the attractive crackling of the crust I associate with King Arthur flour.

    Made me a better baker

    The Yecora Rojo flours really helped me up my baking game. I'd been using a well-known national brand for years, then received Yecora Rojo as a gift... and have loved it! My breads not only taste better, but the dough performs like nothing I've ever experienced! Can't wait to try some of the other flours.

    Perfect addition to my pizza dough

    I added 200g of home-milled Yecora Rojo to my pizza dough mix- which used to be 100% 00 flour. It adds an incredible flavor and texture to the finished crust. I'm really happy with this & wish I would have discovered it sooner!

    Can’t believe it’s whole grain flour you sent me, the fermentation is amazing. This flour is a stunner.

    Great for hot cross buns

    I bought TAM 105 to make hot cross buns. The enriched dough rose very well - first rising for about 3 hours, kneaded in mixed peel and diced apple for the second rise, formed the buns and let rise a third time. They are beautifully soft, tender and delicious.
