      Hi Paulita, thanks for checking in, and great question. The pastry flour has a different protein content than all-purpose flour, (Pastry flour falls in between cake flour and all-purpose flour) so it’s best suited for muffins, pancakes, pastry crusts, breads, etc. I use it wherever I’d use all-purpose flour and have always wound up with a better taste and texture (softer, more fluffy). Do keep in mind that I’m not a big baker and there are probably more discerning Springdellians out there. Feel free to check out flour in the “Veggiescope” for further info!

      Hope this helps! Let us know how it goes! Jess
