Ok, but still 12% of top quality protein.   Far from "regular" in some ways.

Just making the point that your Canadian AP is really a bread flour to many of us who live in parts of the world not that suited to growing wheat for bread

Best wishes

So is that from one batch of eg 2kg flour?

Do you prepare by hand?

Beautiful loaves.

I use a Swedish Assistant mixer for most of my bread. also have 2 Kenwood mixers that I prefer for cakes and sponges.plus 2 Cuisinart food processors. that I have made bread in..

I can't tell you how much flour I use as I start with 1 litre warm water and then I add yeast and sugar, this is for the plain white bread' I then add about 6 cups flour, this is dip and scoop cups, mix that all well together, add  good lump soft butte mix in then I add salt and enough flour to give me a slightly sticky dough. which I turn out and knead by hand to a smooth round ball.

I then leave it in an oiled bowl covered on the counter, summer or winter.to rise, bread to me takes it's own sweet time to rise. DON'T RUSH IT, I  then knock it back. weigh to what I want, pan it or what ever, leave to rise in pan . Bake at 400 to a nice golden brown..

    been baking all our bread all variety.s for about 56 years, when my then to be husband gave me 1/2 pound fresh yeast and asked to make hot cross buns.     qahtan
