  • Using Caputo flour to make a baguette (?)

    Hi all,
    I've been making french baguettes using na mix of bread flour and unbleached all purpose flour. I was wondering if someone has ever tried making them with the caputo flour instead. The Type 55 flour, which is used in France, has 10% of protein and it seems to me that using a flour with an slightly higher protein content (about 11%) might work better than US flours.
    Am I worng or could anyone comment on this?? Any help is much appreciated!
