If you are using Maine Grains stone ground flour for the first time, there are a just a few basic principles to keep in mind. Stone ground flour has more finely ground particles of bran. This is beneficial because it adds to the nutritiousness of the flour, and the flour might also absorb more moisture than white flour. You may need to adjust the moisture in your recipe to achieve the consistency of dough or batter that you like.

A wonderfully easy and delicious way to begin using Maine Grains, and to experience the full fresh flavor of our stone-ground wheat, is to make basic pancakes. We have adapted Mark Bittman's recipe for "Everyday Pancakes" from the New York Times, featured below. Click here to download our recipe for Everyday Pancakes.
