I am SUCH a blonde!!!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

So I just made Italian custard cream for eclairs for the first time. As I was putting everything away, my husband comes and a points at my flour saying "When did you get that?" I told him I just bought it and he says " we already have two bags." I started to say its not the same flour when it dawned on me that I bought BREAD FLOUR instead of cake flour!!!! Now, I already made the cream so I used bread flour instead of cake. Do you think I should throw it out because its the wrong flour or should i wait until it sets to see if it turns out ok? Man, I feel like an idiot!!

Dont feel bad! All us bakers have one of those..."oh no!!" moments ..lol! I wouldn't tose it. See how it turns out first before. Sometimes, when a baker makes a mistake it turns out to be the best thing they ever did wrong!!icon_smile.gif

Bread flour just has a bit more gluten.  I don't think it will make a big difference in a custard.  

I'd rather be baking!
