3. Wheat is unique -- only cereal grain that has enough gluten to make yeast bread without other flours
Edited on Sun Jun-14-09 02:17 AM by steven johnson
You can bake something from the grains you've listed but only wheat has enough gluten to make yeast bread without being mixed with other flours. Gluten is a protein that helps yeast breads develop their framework and structure while trapping the CO2 bubbles.

Making bread without wheat is possible, but the resultant productgenerally won't have a light aerated crumb.
