What is "baker's flour" is it the same as "strong flour"?
« on: January 03, 2012, 08:24:05 pm »
I took it for granted (perhaps in error) that "strong flour" was high protein flour, called "bread flour" in the US.  If I'm correct, what is "baker's flour."  Is it what we call "all purpose flour"?  Or is it another name for strong flour?  Or something entirely different?
