Hello, novice baker here! Bought some wholemeal flour to do an oat and raisin cookie recipe (a success - hooray!)

Any suggestions on what to do with the remaining enormous bag of flour? Is it nice in muffins for example?

Fine in muffins and fairy cakes, tea loaf...pretty much anywhere.

Ooh what's the oat and raisin recipe? I tried one last week and they were v expensive to make as had masses of maple syrup in

Ha! Good timing - I just text DH asking him to pick some up while in the shop so I can try out chapatis!

It's great in pretty much everything (except pancakes or sauce ...)

You can experiment with mixing it with white flour in any recipe. Add a smidgen more raising agent than for white flour alone.

I've been using this (bought from Ocado) in cakes for a few years. Wonderful, chewy, flavoursome. I could never go back to ordinary flour now!

You can use it in pastry. In fact I only realised earlier today that you can use it in Hot Water Crust and Puff as well as Short Crust.

It's really nice used in a crumble topping with brown sugar, tastes nutty and sweet

I use half white and half wholemeal flour in apple muffins with brown sugar too - delicious..

If you use wholemeal flour to make shortcrust, for a quiche for example, it can turn out rather short, and has a bit of a tendency to crack when you try to line the tin, so might need a bit of 'patching'.
