type 960 flour

July 11, 2008 - 11:09pm -- krekdayam

The dark breads in Austria are amazing, with nuts/seeds/grains, oatmeal, even pumpkin seeds; covering the bread spectrum of colors and textures; an amazing detour from normal baguettes and ciabatta.

The lady at the super "markt" in Graz advised type 960 flour based on the words "braun" and "brot" . Now I have a few kg of this flour and have no idea how best to use it.

Sunflower flour? Mini Oven?

May 12, 2007 - 5:58am -- tigressbakes

Has anyone ever heard of, or know where to get Sunflower flour? I read in Linda Collister's Country Breads of the World that it is common in Austria.

She has some wonderful recipes in her book using this flour and if I can get my hands on some I would like to try them.

Mini Oven, have you ever seen this flour, or tasted bread made with it in Austria?
