Difference between Cake Flour and Regular Flour?

Answer

There is a difference between cake flour and regular flour. Flour is an essential ingredient for making baked goods such as cakes, cookies, and pies. Different types of flour have different proportions of proteins and glutens to achieve a certain consistency. Cake flour has a lower proportion of glutens than regular, all-purpose flour. The lower proportion allows the flour to make a softer cake. Regular flour has a higher proportion of glutens and makes recipes with a harder, chewier consistency such as cookies.
