My electric grain mill doesn't grind coarsely enough for cracked wheat, so I use my hand mill. It does a good job. I've made whole wheat bread using this mill to grind all of the flour. It's a little time-consuming and the flour is not quite as fine as the flour milled in my electric one, but it's fine enough. In fact, I have a friend who, when her husband was a medical resident, used this same model hand mill to grind all of her flour for baking bread. She did have a couple of boys who helped her.

I'm baking Cracked Wheat Bread in this Friday's baking. So, if you are interested in ordering some, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you an order sheet.
I'm also baking White Whole Wheat Bread made with 100% white whole wheat flour this Friday.
I'll update this post after the bread is baked!
The Cracked Wheat Bread is baked, and it looks and taste great!
