A few weeks ago I decided to make bagels, and anyone who has successfully made them knows you need bread flour. Due to shelves being empty, for weeks I couldn’t find any flour let alone bread flour. So I did research and looked for bread flour alternatives. I found that if you add vital wheat gluten to flour, you can create homemade bread flour.
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons vital wheat gluten
Add 1 cup flour to bowl.
Remove 2 teaspoons flour, and add 2 teaspoons vital wheat gluten.
Sift to combine. Use as recipe requires.
