These are the different kinds of flour
When it comes to baking with flour, the list of cakes, biscuits and cookies among other desserts is nearly endless. However, we managed to list the most popular types of flour for you to create mouthwatering treats!
If a recipe simply calls for “flour”, it means “All-purpose flour”. It’s the most versatile of flours and can let you prepare textured pies and chewy white bread.
Whether it’s store bought or homemade using in a high speed blender like Ultrablend +, rice flour has a coarse texture and holds the advantage of being one of the gluten free flour alternatives in baking.
Bread flour is the strongest of all flours. It provides the elasticity and texture you need to create a better volume, chewy texture and browned crust.
Cake flour undergoes a bleaching process which weakens the gluten and alters the starch from absorbing sugar and liquids to ensure a moist and tender cake.
Baking powder and salt are added to this flour when it’s manufactured, and it’s perfect to prepare quick and easy doughs. But once the package opened, you can keep this flour for 6 months’ maximum or else it will lose its effect.
Whole wheat flour
Whole wheat flour tends to create denser and heavier results. 1 cup of this flour can be substituted for ½ a cup of all-purpose flour. To store it, you can leave it in cool room temperature for 3 months and then transfer it to the freezer.
