Our premium very fine high ration cake flour for maximum moisture absorption. Delivers a finely milled consistent white dough, capable of absorbing high levels of liquid and sugar. This soft cake flour has been heat treated to allow the addition of high levels of sugar and liquid into your Cotswold Flour cake recipes. This helps gives your cake recipes a soft crumb combined with a light, moist and fine texture that is also sweeter.

Milling and Provenance: What is heat treated flour? Heat treated flour has been heated to 100 to 110 degrees during the heat treatment of the flour after milling. Gelatinization of starch granules occurs during the heat treatment of flour allowing starch granules to absorb more water. Starch granules swell with water adding viscosity to batter and stabilization to the baking process. This helps the flour absorb more moisture and helps to prevent the protein content forming gluten when the flour is hydrated. This allows for increased volumes of cakes.

Perfect for & recipes: High ration cake recipes, madeira cake, muffins, layer cake, Swiss rolls and high ration sponges.

Top Tips: 1: Heat treated flour helps absorb more moisture 2: Stick to recipe do the maths first.

Contains: Wheat

Protein: 9%
