Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

Weighing bread flour

On the cooking convertor site there is no bread flour, only all purpose and wholewheat. The 2 just mentioned have a different conversion rate, so I am not sure how to measure bread flour. Any suggestions?

I'm not sure what you are trying to convert it to. Numbers will vary somewhat between sources. Being in the US, I tend to use a USDA database. It gives the following figures in grams per cup (A US measuring cup is about 237 mL, but using 240 mL would be a negligible error:
Bread flour 137 g/cup (also cake flour)
GP flour: 125 g/cup
Whole wheat flour: 120 g/cup
