Who remembers cake flour? I hadn’t used it in ages – maybe thirty years – and was astounded by the price of it these days. This two-pound box was over $4.00 recently.
Fortunately, I use it in small amounts in the pancakes, but am seeing references here and there, mostly for pancakes, more frequently now, so maybe there is a resurgence in use.
Both of the above brand names were prevalent in the past, but I found only Softasilk in the grocery store here. I always loved the connotation of “swan’s down” – it sounds like the softest thing imaginable! My sleeping bag is filled with goose down, but swan’s down? Well, that sounds almost magical. ;->
