Whole Wheat Flour

As my family becomes more health-conscious in our cooking, we've tried incorporating more whole grains into our diet. Can we substitute some whole wheat flour for all-purpose flour in our favorite recipes? —S.D., Lake Bluff, Illinois

Substituting whole wheat flour for all-purpose flour is a great idea and can be an easy way to sneak extra fiber into your diet. For best results, it is recommended that equal proportions of whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour be used. Keep in mind that baked goods made with whole wheat flour tend to be denser and have a coarser texture.
