Can I sub white flour for Whole Wheat pastry flour in this recipe?

Compumom11

It's an apple muffin recipe from Smitten Kitchen. I have 3 beautiful Granny Smith apples here since 5/4 and really need to use them up. I didn't buy them, they were part of a beautiful fruit arrangement for DH's birthday. This recipe sounds good, but no WW flour on hand and frankly, don't really want any either. Can I sub white AP flour?

If not, can you suggest a muffin or quick bread to use up these apples? Points added if I can use greek yogurt as an ingredient!

There are a whole bunch of recipes for apple/Greek yoghurt quickbreads:

Re your muffin recipe, you could make it without the whole wheat flour, but you'd want to adjust the quantity of flour and sugar, and that could be tricky for it coming out right the first time. Do you have any bran or unsweetened bran cereal? Because you could make your own whole wheat flour substitute. That would give the rich flavor and earthy structure.

You could also make a small pie with three granny smiths. :) Or poached or baked apples, or applesauce. .... I love tart apples. Nix that if you don't.

Baked apples were a good idea, I thought about that too. No, I don't have any bran, I"m Gluten Free and don't bake very much. I just have AP flour for my regular gluten baking. I'll look at apple yogurt breads too. DH likes something like that as an option for his breakfast.

I have a recipe for apple muffins with AP flour if you still need one. I also have a recipe for raw apple cake, which is good.

I sub and mix flours all the time - esp. in quick breads like muffins. I don't see that it should be a problem.

That's a lot of cinnamon, though!

Something I used to make lot but haven't in awhile (not sure why) is baked apple compote. Sorry no recipe, just cut up (cored) apples (peeled or not), a squeeze or so of lemon juice, raisins, honey or maple syrup, cinnamon and/or other sweet spices and a little water to help plump the raisins, dotted with butter and baked in a shallow enamel or pyrex pan at 400F until apples are soft - maybe 35-45 minutes, depending on how much there is, stirring a couple times. Adding some chopped nuts on top for the last 8-10 minutes is good too.You can serve topped with crumbled cookies or granola, or just eat as -is.

Compumom11:

Apple muffins

3 -1/2 cups flour

3 cups peeled, finely chopped apples

2 cups sugar

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. cinnamon

Combine above, then stir in remaining ingredients.

1 cup cooking oil

1/2 cup chopped nuts

1 tsp. vanilla

The batter will be stiff.

Fill muffin tins (greased) or cupcake papers. Bake @ 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

I haven't made these in years, but I always check baked goods early-just in case.


Raw Apple Cake

2 cups sugar

1 cup cooking oil

2 eggs, beaten

4 cups raw peeled apples, finely chopped

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. allspice

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

2 cups flour

4 cups raw peeled apples, chopped

1/2 cup chopped nuts


Combine sugar and oil, then add beaten eggs. Sift all dry ingredients together and add to egg mixture, then add apples and nuts. Pour into a greased 9 x 13 pan and bake @350 degrees for 45 minutes.
