First let’s start with how to measure flour properly and why it is so important to do so!
- Do you scoop cake flour out of the bag with your measuring cup?
- Wondering why your baked goods are coming out dense?
- You’re doing it wrong!
You MUST make sure you’re spooning the bread flour, all purpose, wheat flour, or gluten free flours into your measuring cups to keep everything light and fluffy. Once you understand how to do this correctly you’ll be thrilled with the end results.
We also share here how to half a recipe if you’re scratching your head on that one.
Is plain flour and all purpose flour the same thing?
All purpose flour is essentially what they call in other countries, plain flour. It is a mixture of both hard and soft wheat and can be used for many recipes that call for it. However, it should not be confused with self-rising flour as that is different.

What is a good substitute for white flour ?
If you cannot have that in your diet?
- Almond flour – Derived from crushed almonds that have been blanched and then finely ground to a light, flour type texture.
- Coconut flour is used in baking keto style
- Quinoa flour is more unusual but higher protein content than others
- Chickpea flour is good for keto baking as well
- Brown rice flour
Is self rising and all purpose flour the same?
- No. Self-rising flour should only be used when a recipe calls for it because salt and baking powder are in the flour mixed in already.
