Homemade Bread Flour

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


  1. Add 1 cup flour to bowl.

  2. Remove 2 teaspoons flour, and add 2 teaspoons vital wheat gluten.

  3. Sift to combine. Use as recipe requires.
