I want to make a bread that calls for durum flour, but I don't have any on hand. Is there anything that is a good substitute? Thanks.
Semolina flour if you have it or can find it easily. If not, just regular bread or all purpose flour will do.
but I have a fairly trustworthy chart that lists 1 US cup of Durum flour = 170g; and 1 US cup of APF/Bread Flour = 130g. (Farina or "Cream of Wheat" is about 175g per US cup)
Just a heads-up...you should be able to increase the mass/weight (if you're baking that way) a little when you substitute and judge the "feel" of the dough.
(Not sure if this helps...probably too late to the party, anyway...just FYI)
Best of luck,
