    I'm not sure what you are asking. Are you considering a bread recipe that calls for vital wheat gluten, or is it something else? Recipe number?
    Or are you looking for gluten-free recipes for some baked goods? There is a GF/Celiac forum here, under Dietary Forums, which could be helpful, if that's the case.

    I have a bread recipe that calls for vital wheat gluten and would like to know if there is a substitute.

    How much gluten for how much flour is in the recipe?

    I'm using up the gluten I have in the freezer and probably won't buy it again. Haven't notice a difference in rising when I leave it out.

    Red Apple Guy, a forum host in Baking, has posted the same thing: he hasn't noticed a difference, too.

    If your recipe calls for all-purpose flour plus vital wheat gluten, you can swap the flour for bread flour and leave out the gluten.

    Honestly, except for a few special recipes which need a LOT of chew (ciabatta, for instance), I don't find the added gluten makes a significant difference. You could probably leave it out all together (or just substitute more flour) without noticing a difference.

    Thanks for all the responses. This is for a brioche/bread which calls for regular flour, yeast and wheat gluten.

    I would not worry about gluten in a brioche. Just use the all-purpose flour. you might want to hold back a little of the liquid - gluten makes the all-purpose flour like bread flour, and so you generally need just a bit more liquid, which you would not need with just plain flour. Add only as much as you need.
