    I was wondering if this was for all purpose flour or whole wheat flour? Or could they be used interchangeably?

      This recipe came with my Country Living Grain Mill and I have always used it with Whole Wheat Flour that we ground. My kids love it and my son has asked for it to be his Groom’s Cake at his wedding in a few days. I had misplaced my original copy of it and I am very glad to find it online.

      This is intended to be made with whole wheat flour.
