    Ai yo, Victoria! These little sheep are so cute! Staring them too much will stop me from having the first bite :p

    They are so cute 😀
    Is it okay if I use all-purpose flour?

    • Victoria Bakes (March 7, 2014)

      Hello Emma

      Yes you can, though there may be a difference. bread made with bread flour tend to rise more, and is chewier due to the difference in gluten strength. All purpose flour yields a lighter and fluffier texture which is a more desirable quality in say, cake but not bread.

      Having said that, all purpose flour is not too far off from bread flour in gluten though. so i\’d yes, have a go at it… it will work 🙂
