I was in GFS on Saturday and saw "High Protein Flour". Is that a type of cake flour?

Thanks a bunch,

high protein flour is bread flour. Protein = gluten.

No, it's bread flour. It contains more gluten so it makes things chewier. Bad for cakes but I use it for cookies icon_smile.gif

Thanks. I should have know glutein = protein because I use the King Arthur's bread flour for my cookies instead of AP flour.

Thank you.
