Tips from Judy:

  • Bread flour has more protein in it than traditional flours, which makes it perfect for tasty loaves of bread. This extra protein helps with gluten development.
  • If you can’t get your hands on bread flour, but you happen to have vital wheat gluten, then you can add a little bit of that to all-purpose flour in order to approximate bread flour.
  • This bread is not yeasted, which makes it perfect for when you want to make a speedy baking project without fiddly rise times.

Wisdom from Chef Kumin:

  • The best lesson I learned from Chef Kumin was to always understand the science of the ingredients with which you are working.
  • And remember, mistakes are lessons and can be used as learning opportunities.
