Recipe for self-rising flour (UK version if geography matters)

Help me make a precise substitute for self-rising flour, using weight measures for the flour(s) or all of the components. I already have various flours with the gamut of protein levels: cake, pastry, AP, bread, semolina, and I don't want to buy and store yet another variation (with lousy shelf-life, to boot). I am looking to precisely match what a random person in the UK would buy off the shelf. Help? [more inside]

Flour translation for oil-egg-flour-milk-leavening quick bread.

For my office, and for a Thursday food-related gathering, I would like to make one of my go-to quick bread recipes (almond poppyseed bread) but using one or several of these flours: almond; chickpea; lentil; and/or spelt. Is there a web site or flour translator that would help me re-work the recipe successfully? [more inside]

Any recommendations on where to buy high-gluten flour?

Hi, I've recently started to make bagels at home. For best results, I need high-gluten flour. I'm sick of paying a lot in shipping costs when I buy from vendors on Amazon, but I also don't see that kind of flour in the grocery store. Can anyone recommend a cheaper online vendor they've used or suggest a local source or how I might find one? I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota (historically, the "Mill City," which makes me feel worse about paying to have flour mailed to my house.)

Why does my wheat smell like beets?

Did my flour go bad? I have some wheat flour from a small local farm. I used it to make bread today and it has an odd smell. I'm wondering if it's still okay to use or if I'll be tripping like a medieval peasant if I eat it. [more inside]

Does Wonderbread hurt my stomach?

Help us settle a dispute. Is cheap, supermarket white bread made with finer flour than artisanal sourdough bread? And if so, does the fine white flour lead to more gastrointestinal upset because "it becomes glue in your stomach"?

Need a fix for floury chowder

I've just made a big pot of chowder, but it tastes really floury - I presume I must have undercooked the roux. Can anyone suggest a way to rescue it? The best that googling can do is suggest I add something to mask the taste - any suggestions for what might work to do that?

Spurred by a recent flour question: why does some flour have barley in it, and some doesn't? And why? And what are the qualitative differences (flavor, texture) between the two?

When were insects eliminated from flour?

Hi all, I am doing some writing on the history of baking, and I was wondering when flour became pure. We take for granted the fact that flour in our grocery stores is free from insect larvae, twigs, and other contaminants. I have heard that the purpose of sifting flour was once to get this stuff out. Now we sift for nostalgia's sake or possibly to make flour fluffy. I want to say that flour became pure with the advent of large flour millers in the 19th century like Wasburn-Crosby and Pillsbury (both now are part of General Mills). But that is just a guess. When did things really get cleaned up? Do any of you foodies and bakers know? Thanks!

Not the King Biscuit Flour Hour...

I have a vague memory of some show airing during the early 1980s that I think was sponsored by Robin Hood Flour or maybe King Arthur Flour. I have little to no recollection of what happened on the show (some sort of baking challenge for kids maybe?) but I know that I would watch it around lunchtime when I had half-days of kindergarten. It could have been either a PBS or CBC show as we got CKWS out of Kingston, Ont. in my village in Upstate NY. Robin Hood Flour sounds right, so I'm leaning toward it being a Canadian show. Does this ring any bells with anyone?
