Yup! I am hooked on whole wheat pastry flour ever since I saw Ellie Krieger use it in her baking all the time. I stopped buying whole wheat flour after that. I love the way things turn out when I use this flour. As usual, I let 2 banana's turn very yuckly ripe and I decided to use the brown sugar in them to make the appam. I just love using the appam vessel because, it is so simple to work with and does not require a lot of oil. I am constantly thinking of ways to use them constantly.
