What is the effect of using strong (bread) flour instead of general purpose?

I was going to make some cakes or biscuits or little doughnutty things but don't have any normal flour in. If I use bread flour instead, how will the recipe be affected?

I would think it would be ok. But don't know for sure.

Lol. That makes two of us. I know the recipe would work, but will it make the end result tough and chewy?

Well, I'll try it and let you know.

doughnutty things are bread. make them not biccies.

or you could try replacing 2tbs of bf with cornflour.

I made the donutty things. Bit dry. Not as melty as usual, but that may well be down to 3-yr-old dd's heavy involvement in the mixing stage. grin
