Baking with Sukrin Almond Flour
Baking with almond flour
Whenever you use flour, you can also use almond flour. Almond flour behaves a little differently compared to regular flour because it lacks gluten. Gluten makes it possible for yeast dough to rise as the gluten forms a network of small walls that hold gas trapped in the dough. Gluten also acts as a binder in the dough and makes it easier to handle. When baking with yeast, you can replace 10-20% of the wheat flour with almond flour. You should then also increase the amount of liquid by about 5-10%.
When not baking with yeast, you can replace up to 100% of the flour. As almond flour has such a high fibre content, it will soak up more liquid, up to twice as much as other types of flour. You should therefore reduce the amount of almond flour to 50-60% of the original amount of flour, or increase the amount of liquid in the recipe. Be aware that when baking with 100% almond flour, the dough sticks together less well than dough with flour. A tip is to add a binder such as Fibrefine.
