Bread Flour Substitute Using All Purpose Flour
Homemade Bread Flour
How may times have you looked at a bread recipe and it calls for Bread Flour but all you have is All-Purpose Flour. Have no fears because adding some vital wheat gluten you can make your own.
Vital Wheat Gluten is a protein from flour which creates long strings of molecules and helps hold the carbon dioxide in which in turn causes the dough to rise.
The big question is how much vital wheat gluten do you have to add. Simple about 1 teaspoon (5 mLs / 6 grams/ 1/4-ounce by weight) per cup of all-purpose flour (1 cup / 235 mLs / 120 grams / 4-1/4 ounces by weight). (If you check the internet for the conversion you will see it ranges from 1 to 3 teaspoons per cup of flour.)/
