    It will have more gluten... so things will be "tougher" - I would think in a zucchini or banana bread it would be ok, not not in cake or cookies. Just don't expect the food to be light and airy.

    Take it as a good chance to try making some bread... yum!

        So does Jacques Torres's, though he uses a combination. But, I think a recipe that starts w/ bread flour accommodates for the extra gluten and probably has more liquids vs just interchanging equal amounts of bread flour for AP. Looking at Alton Brown's recipe, he has 2 tablespoons of milk in it.

      Replace a couple of tablespoons of it with corn starch and it'll work if you can't return it.

        It is good for pizza.
