I was hoping someone knew if I could use bread flour in place of regular flour for a cupcake recipe.

I wouldn't do it. The protein content of bread flour is much higher than AP flour, and it will ruin the texture of your cupcakes. icon_sad.gif

No way. You will have tough cupcakes.

Actually, you could - if you mixed it with cake flour. There is a formula which I won't bore you with since you're already purchasing more flour.

Ya know, Pole I thought of that also, but I kinda thought that if she didn't have AP flour she probably didn't have cake flour either.

Meh . . . you know what happens when you assume.

And see, my natural assumption was that a cake decorator/baker would have cake flour. But I realize that not everyone is like me and keeps 20 different types of flour in their pantry. LOL!
