    What’s "a" flour?

  • Blendtec

    Sorry about that! In some browsers, it was showing the 1/3 as an "a." We have updated it so it should be correct now.

    I saw on another recipe on this site—the "Gluten-free bread" that the "â" was supposed to be 1/3. Meaning a third of the flour each time. Makes sense now huh? That was confusing for me as well.
