Flour Comparison (Cake Flour vs. All-Purpose Flour)

Which flour is better?  Have you ever wondered?  I have.  Just because it says "Cake Flour" on the box, does that really make it better for cakes than all-purpose four?  Inquiring minds want to know.  I decided to run an experiment and find out.

 I made the same cupcake recipe, once with cake flour and once with all-purpose flour.  These are lemon cupcakes with raspberry frosting.  Mmmm!  Wanna guess which one is which?

Strawberry Daiquiri Pie

Please pardon my recent absence.  I went on vacation expecting to post on the road, only to find that I had no Internet connection when I got there.  Yes, I still live in the technological dark ages and have no iPhone, etc.  (Sigh)  Maybe you'll forgive me when you take a bite of this pie.

Whole Wheat Pita Bread

I know what you're thinking...what is THIS doing on this blog?  And you're right, it's not sweet or decorative, but these homemade pita breads are so fun to make that I just couldn't help myself.  They are especially fun to make with the kids.  Don't worry, I won't get carried away and stop posting desserts.
