Great flour, great recipes

The chocolate cake recipe produced some of the best tasting cupcakes I have ever made (in the past 50 years of baking). The crumb & moisture were perfect. The rye bread & sandwich loaves turned out beautifully. The sour dough starter became activated within a few hours! Unfortunately my technical skills & patience didn’t do your flour justice. I’m looking forward to trying more of your recipes & more of your amazing flours. Thank you!

Awesome bread !

I am making delicious bread with your flour !

Try Adding Quanah to your Sourdough

One of my sourdough baking friends made a loaf with Barton Springs' Quanah added. It was perhaps one of *the* most delightful and delicious loaves of sourdough I have eaten, both from home baked goods to professional bakers. I wanted to bring this goodness into our own home, so I ordered a bag. It felt good to know I was supporting Barton's mission with the grain preservation and continuity. But let me tell you - the quality of the quanah flour was gorgeous! So fresh, and for my recipe, which calls for 455 grams of flour, I used 100 grams of quanah with the rest being bread flour. It was sooo delicious, and will likely be a regular part of our hearth. The quality of the crumb, the quality of the taste, it really has been a joy!
