The reason is quite obvious. In order to bake bread, more amount of gluten is needed, which can only be gained by the flour having a high level of protein. The amount of protein in pastry flour is as less as 8%, which does not have the capability to provide enough gluten to bread which is one of its most important constituents. Therefore, your bread will not be able to maintain its structure and rise as needed. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerLeave an answerCancel reply Attachment Select file Browse Featured image Select file Browse Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
