Yes, you can, but your end product will be a bit heavier if you use all whole wheat. Instead, replace half the all-purpose flour in your recipes with the whole wheat flour, especially if you are not used to eating products made exclusively with whole wheat flour. Your end product won't be as heavy & you'll still get the goodness of the whole wheat.

You can, but the flour is more dense. I don't like it for baking.

Yes, but it will make it more dense. I combine half and half, unless I want my end product to be heavier (like when I make scones...I don't mind them being a little on the dense side).

I made a chocolate cake with whole wheat flour and it was very bread like I guess you'd say. Hubby and kids loved it but I wasn't used to it lol. If I made any other cakes or desserts with I'd use half and half so it isn't so dense. But it didnt take away from the taste which I thought it would.

when I make bread I use 1/2 wheat and 1/2 unbleached flour.  You can use all wheat, but it'll make things a bit heavier.

 You can replace ap flour.

I usually replace 1/2 with whole wheat.
