Swati, I've been browsing around your two blogs for a long time now. What is Maida?

HULYA said...

Dear Swati,
I would like to learn what Maida is couldn't find it anywhere.Love from izmir,Turkiye:-))

Dear Ivy and Hulya

Maida is cake flour. You can alternatively use self raising flour and adjust the baking powder accordingly. I somehow have personally experienced that cake flour works better than self raising flour.So see what you think will work best for you.

Hi Swati, I had a question, but it's been answered (ie. Maida). I'm glad I stumbled on yout blog because I've been asked to bake a wedding cake, and while I'm trying to ignore the fact, it occurs to me that I'd best start researching. I'm terrified!
