I'm confused by flour. Know this has probably been aske-ED
a million times but browsing certain recipie books at the
bookstore there seems to be no rhyme or reason to their use.
I see some bread,cake,cookie recipies that call for AP flour
and some bread recipies that call for cake flour and some
general baking apps that call for bread flour,and some bread
recipies that call for AP only etc.
What is the difference and if you took a recipie say for cake
that called for cake flour and you used bread or AP, what would
happen? How would it differ?
It SEEMS that most high end baking book recipies call for
00 AP flour more than the special "bread" or "cake" flour.
Again...it SEEMS this way just from browsing.
Anyway, thanks for any replies.
