Where to get coarsely ground soft wheat flour in Australia? For Irish 'brown bread' (soda bread).

August 23, 2012 - 8:41pm -- Farmer Elly


I'm in Brisbane, Australia. Wondering if anyone knows where I might source coarse milled whole wheat flour milled from soft wheat (soft red winter wheat would be great). I'm trying to find out for my mum who misses the real Irish brown bread (soda bread made with whole wheat flour). I'm a sourdough baker so soft wheat is new to me.

I've seen that King Arthur sell flour especially for this purpose, but can't see that it's stocked anywhere in Australia. I don't think they ship this far either (well at a price I can afford anyway).

Any ideas?

Healthy oat and fruit bar

I've looked all around the TFL forum, and, since I can't find any threads on this subject, I thought I'd start one. I very rarely buy a commercial 'Healthy bar' since, apart from the fact that I'm vegan, they're always for too sweet for my taste, so I wanted to have a go at making my own.

I stumbled across this recipe by accident when I left my fruit breakfast naans too long in the frying pan - they dried out and became 'biscuity'.

The bars contain no added fat, no refined sugars and no yeast, and can be varied infinitely!:
