Tempted by the baked goods in the glass case at your neighborhood coffee shop? Trust us, the homemade versions taste way better and are a breeze to make. Not only are Martha’s new favorite recipes for biscotti, coffee cake, and scones supremely delicious, but they also rely on less-processed grains, such as graham, spelt, and whole-wheat flour. The best part is that there’s no compromise on flavor or texture -- these treats have both in spades.

 

Martha is also joined by another baking expert in the kitchen this week: Blair Marvin from Vermont's Elmore Mountain Bread. Marvin brings with her some of Elmore’s freshly milled whole-wheat flour, which is ground from locally sourced grains onsite at the bakery. She also shares her tips on baking with whole-wheat flour and demonstrates how to make a simple shortbread. Take a peek at two of the recipes in the latest episode below, and don’t forget to tune in this weekend!
