In respect to this, is plain flour and all purpose flour the same?
All-purpose flour is a mixture of both hard and soft wheat and has from eight to eleven per cent of gluten and can be used for many popular recipes and is also known in many countries as plain flour, so they are really synonyms. However, it should not be confused with self-raising flour.
One may also ask, can I use plain flour instead of all purpose flour for cookies? All-purpose is not that all purpose. Hence why it is better termed “plain” flour. Use bread flour for bread (hard wheat flour with a higher protein content), use cake flour for some biscuits/cookies(lower protein content). Approx 15g of baking powder (yes powder, not baking soda) to 300g plain (all-purpose) flour.
Similarly, it is asked, what can I use in place of all purpose flour?
If you need to substitute flour: 1 cup all-purpose: 1/2 cup whole-wheat + 1/2 cup all-purpose (white). If you make this 100% whole-wheat, baked goods will be “dense.” Almond flour: substitute 1:1 with all-purpose (white) flour.
Can you substitute self raising flour for plain flour?
No you cannot replace self-raising flour with plain flour, since the self raising flour have a raising agent such as baking soda or baking powder. But if you still want to replace it, then you should do it by adding the required quantity of baking soda or baking powder as the requirement of recipe.
