Re: Baking cakes and flour

View Post
Here's a really girly question about cake baking..
I'm looking for some self-raising flour. .. preferably 'OO' flour if it exists in Switzerland.
I went down to my local Migros and found about 10 different types with so many different names that didn't make any sense to me.
Can anyone shed any light?
Doesn't exist - you'll need plain flour and then add baking powder - but even that isn't as strong as the stuff you get in the UK so add more than the packet says to get a self-raising equivalent. It's a very imprecise science and involves quite a lot of hit and miss. Otherwise, order some from the people at the expat shop.
