You can use all purpose flour. Bread flour is just finer and I think it contains more gluten. This might explain more about it: http://allrecipes.com/howto/all-about-flour/

I have successfully used all-purpose flour as a substitution for bread flour in the past. They yield different consistencies but they both work. I would check your grocery store next time you’re there – most of them carry bread flour.

I wonder if bread flour is anything like cake flour? For cake flour you can substitue all purpose by sifting before measuring and then removing 3tbsp for every cup called for in the recipe.

No, it’s not. I wouldn’t use cake flour instead of bread flour. The details are in that article. I don’t think your bread will rise, unless you add gluten back into it. http://www.joyofbaking.com/flour.html

I just use unbleached flour and my bread always comes out fine!
