Desserts can get a bad rap in healthy-eating circles. But why not enjoy them from time to time using wholesome ingredients like traditional fats, unrefined sweeteners, and soaked or soured flours?
Soaking flour in an acidic medium is a method of making the grain more digestible, while lightening the baked good. The breaking down of the fibers in the whole grain flour often results in a much better tasting end product, akin to those made with refined white flour.
