You should be able to get it at any supermarket or chino, you basically have to types:" leudante " that already has baking powder or " comun " w/o baking powder , just make sure the packet says 0000 ( 4 zeros ) and not 000nledec said:Does anyone know where I can find cake flour?
Definitions vary from country to country and don't always have exact equivalents. In the UK they have 'weak' flour and 'strong' flour only they call the former just 'flour' and the latter 'bread flour' In the UK you use just 'flour' for baking cakes and pastries and maybe find a particular brand of 'flour' that works best for you. In Argentina most of the retail flour is 'weak' flour and in my opinion, you will find the quality you want by using OOOO grade and trying various brands until you find one you like. My advice would be to buy a bag of OOOO flour and be willing to be surprised.nledec said:Perhaps I'm not being clear, there is above and beyond the various types of flours available in the market a kind of flour known in English as cake flour (readily availably in groceries in the US). It has a "refining" process that goes further than what I've seen available here--including the 0000. There are other kinds of specialty flours too--pastry flour for example. I'm guessing that here they would only be available from a purveyor that sells to professional bakeries (though considering the baked goods here what I'm looking for may not even exist).
In short, the question is does anyone know where I can find specialty flours beyond what is readily available in the supermarkets?
