    Hi Fay,

    Can I use whole wheat flour with this recipe?

      Hi LaShonda,
      I’ve had Hardough bread made with whole wheat flour but I’ve never used it myself. I think you should be able to substitute it in the recipe with good results. Let me know how it goes. Blessings, Fay

    I am finding it difficult to open up the new web site pages. Signed in under the free 7 day trial for gold membership, but I am not able to open the recipes. I am I doing something wrong or is the site down. 🙁

    Miss Fay,

    Thank you for the recipe!

    You were right! The hard dough bread just came out of the oven and I love it. Same flavour and texture as store-bought hard dough bread…or even, as you suggest in your video, a bit better.

    This bread and other the loaves that will undoubtedly follow, are sure to bring joy to the hearts of many of my Jamaican friends living here in Madrid, Spain.

    Thanks again.

    Hello Miss Fay

    I’m really excited to try my hand at this as I love hardough bread,however I don’t have a fancy hook to mix the dough how can I get around that without purchasing a new mixer?

    Thanks in advance

      Hi Sharon,
      Though the mixer is easier you can use your hands and do it the old-fashioned way. But I suggest using your regular mixing attachment to do the initial mixing of the all the ingredients. Hope that helps! Fay
