I was in my Cash & Carry store looking to see what kind of cake flour they offered. The only thing they had was Swan Down Hi Ratio Cake flour. A 50lb bag was $15.79. A much better price than $2.76 for a box a Softasilk cake flour but is the quality different? Worse or better? Thanks!
Swans down is a great cake flour brand.
Swans down is the only cake flour I can find in my neck of the woods and I love it.
I use both brands interchangeably, I have not noticed much difference between them. Some of our stores carry one, and some the other. I only use it for one recipe in particular (the rest call for regular flour) so its not bad to have to buy the boxes.
That is a TON cheaper though! Wish we had that store!
Thanks! I think I'll go ahead and make the committment. DH will be thrilled to have one more 50lb bag of "cake" ingredient to haul in and find a place to store!
Just make sure you store it in an airtight container. I once found the remains of a scorpion that had suffocated in my open box of cake flour. Yuck! I since store all my dry goods in airtight containers, no mater what the original packaging is.
