    Thanks, Julie. I use barley flour almost exclusively and love it! From crepes to pancakes to our favorite chocolate cake, it’s our everyday flour.

    So, can barley flour be replaced cup for cup in baking? What kind of recipes work best with barley flour?

    Speaking of flours, what can rye flour be used for other than bread? I would imagine rye and chocolate wouldn’t go well together.

    Further to Lori’s question…can gluten-free flour mix be substituted for the barley flour cup-for-cup? I’d really like to make this today. I’ll check your index for a good icing too. Thanks.

      Yes! sorry, I had said you can use it cup for cup in place of regular flour, but somehow it got edited out and not put back in. Will add it now! I imagine a good gluten-free blend could be used in place of the barley flour with good results. Let me know how it goes!

    I have never tried barley flour, but I plan to. Thanks for a great recipe. I love snack cakes, too! There is just something so homey about the name.

    I have never seen barley flour in the stores here – except at a natural foods shop in the bulk bin aisle. I’m going to find some, though, so I can try this ASAP… looks amazing!

      Jan – I just heard that it’s more difficult to find barley flour in Ontario – but Bulk Barn carries it!
