Whole wheat flour substitution questions please.

December 30, 2010 - 2:36pm -- BKSinAZ

I have a Welbuilt bread machine and a recipe that has always worked wonderfully in the past. The bread machine only has 'french', 'sweet', 'white', and 'manual' modes.


I would like to experiment with flavors. Therefore, I would like to substitue one cup of freshly ground red whole wheat berries for one of the three cups the original recipe calls for.


The original bread machine recipe:


2 1/2 tsp dry yeast


3 cups of flour


1 1/2 tsp salt


1 1/2 tsp sugar


1 1/2 tsp shortening
