Millet Flour



Flour made by grinding millet seed into a powder.

You can grind your own Millet Flour from millet seed in a blender or coffee mill. If you buy the seed already ground into flour, make sure the supply is fresh -- it can go rancid quite quickly. The flour will have a creamy-white or pale yellow colour.

Cooking Tips

In yeast-risen breads, you can swap in from 1/2 to 3/4 cup of wheat flour for millet flour. In other baked goods that aren't risen with yeast, up to half the flour can be Millet Flour, though Millet Flour can make baked goods crumbly and dry if you use too much of it.

Nutrition

Gluten-free.


Storage Hints

Store in freezer. If it develops a slightly bitter aftertaste, discard it because it is starting to go off (it will be the protein and the oils in the flour going rancid).

    At first blush, you might be tempted to ask who's the bright spark who picked April for Zucchini Bread Day? Well, zucchini is harvested from November to May in Australia (depending on the part of Australia), with April being bumper crop time down under. In the northern hemisphere, the reason for having Zucchini Bread Day now would be to make it at a time when you can appreciate it.
