For years I have always made bread and added 1tbl spoon of gluten flour as per recipe. Gluten flour is quite expensive and I have run out of it at the moment. What is likely to happen if I just omit it? I know I can always try it and see!

If you are using ordinary flour in your breadmaking, there is gluten in that so it will stick together just the same. I use high grade and whole meal together sometimes, but will use just white also.


Did you know, that what you thought I said, was not what I meant :S

I prefer wholemeal and I believe there is less gluten in that than white flour, the next (wholemeal) one I make I'll just omit it and hope it sticks together.

I've never added extra gluten when making bread, but I've always used bread flour and wholemeal. I think the worst case scenario is that it may come out a little denser than usual.

Well I have just put a loaf on (without gluten flour) so I'll report back at lunch time if it was successful or not.

Looks good, tastes good, you would never know it hasn't any gluten flour in it. In future I'll continue to omit it.
