Baking with USDA Organic Seal Whole Wheat Flour

I got nothing to do on a lazy rainy Thursday morning and I realized we don't have bread at home. What better thing to do than bake? I bought blueberries yesterday because I remembered it's best for kids' brain development. I was afraid my daughter won't eat it as it is anymore so I decided to conceal it in a bread. I searched online for blueberry cake recipes and I went to the site I've been using for awhile. I trust AllRecipes too because I see a lot of reviews and it's rated by stars so I won't have a hard time choosing what has been tried and tasted!
Today is special because I am going to try a new brand, King Arthur Flour. I have tried another brand of whole wheat flour before and I swear I didn't like the end-result. With King Arthur Flour, I was in high hopes in getting a better result and it didn't fail me. I have a few reasons why I like King Arthur Flour brand:
1) It's 100% organic, 100% wheat. No other unwanted ingredients for you to take!
2) They offer unbleached white whole wheat flour. It's pure and untouched.
3) It's milled in the USA. I actually do not care where just as long as it says where it came from. It's important because each country has its own food regulation thing and US is among my trusted ones.
Now, the verdict. According to mom, she thought it was great. She specially liked the icing because it's sweet and it balances the overall taste of the blueberry cake. She said that the cake on it's own was a bit bland (she has a real sweet tooth). I expected it blueberries are kind of sour in nature (specially when my mom over-crushed it). Next time, I'll omit the salt.
I tasted it too and thought it was okay. I can feel the wheat crumbs with gives it a different feel in the tongue. There's no real issue compared with all purpose flour at all.

The funny part is, my daughter didn't really tried the blueberry cake, she got more interested in eating the blueberries lying on the plate. LOL! I guess she'll have it tonight. I have to try more baking goods with fruits and vegetables! And I'll for sure use the same King Arthur Flour organic whole wheat! My mom finished her share though so I thought it was acceptable!
