The Scoop on Flour – The type of flour used in a recipe affects the flavor and texture of the finished product.
THE SCOOP ON FLOUR
All-purpose flour – a blend of hard and soft wheat. Use in all baking.
Cake flour – Milled from soft wheat. Has a low-protein content. This allows cakes to be tender and have a fine-grained texture. You may substitute cake flour for all-purpose flour by increasing the amount of flour by 2 T per cup. Use in cakes.
HOW TO MEASURE FLOUR CORRECTLY
Measure carefully, especially the flour. How do you measure flour? To correctly measure flour, first, sift the flour. Then using a spoon or scoop lightly scoop flour out of its container into a measuring cup. Continue filling the cup until it is overflowing, then using the back of a butter knife level the flour. Scooping the measuring cup directly into the flour to fill can result in up to 25% more flour than lightly spooning the flour into the measuring cup. More flour in a recipe will make it dense and dry.
