Cakes are a very common type in baking. Generally, low-gluten flour is used to make them. Compared with medium and high-gluten flour, low-gluten flour has lower protein content and lower gluten, and the cakes made are softer and more delicate. So can low-gluten wheat flour make cakes?
1. low-gluten wheat flour can be used to make cakes.
2. Some cake-specific wheat flour is low-gluten flour. The protein content of low-gluten flour is usually around 6.5% to 9.5%. This kind of low-gluten flour is not only suitable for making cakes, but also suitable for making cookies, or some desserts that are relatively fluffy and have no toughness. When making bread, you need to use high-gluten flour or all-purpose flour. But cakes made with wheat flour alone will be quite different from cakes made with low-gluten flour.
