    Love everything about it!

    Love love love

    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!
