Does anyone know if I can use bread flour when making Italian Easter bread? I have Lidia Bastianich's recipe (which I alter to make with anissette like my grandmother used to) but she says use all-purpose (which I am sure my grandmother did too). However, I only have a 5 lb. bag of bread flour - which I have never used before. I don't really know the difference between bread flour or APF and if Easter bread is different from traditional bread making.
