plain flour/all purpose flour
Flour is a powder made by grinding raw grains, roots, beans, nuts, or seeds. Flours are used to make many different foods. Cereal flour, particularly wheat flour, is the main ingredient of bread, which is a staple food for most cultures. Corn flour has been important in Mesoamerican cuisine since ancient times and remains a staple in the Americas. Rye flour is a constituent of bread in central and northern Europe.
Cereal flour consists either of the endosperm, germ, and bran together (whole-grain flour) or of the endosperm alone (refined flour). Meal is either differentiable from flour as having slightly coarser particle size (degree of comminution) or is synonymous with flour; the word is used both ways. For example, the word cornmeal often connotes a grittier texture whereas corn flour connotes fine powder, although there is no codified dividing line.

This is a classic (and my favourite!) gingerbread recipe, taken from a 1973 cookery book called "The Best of Good Housekeeping". I usually make double the amount just before Christmas, slice it up and put it in the freezer. A third will go to my daughter's when I visit at Christmas time. The...
This is a recipe I have had for 2 decades now, going by the date on the bottom of the scanned image. We love it. It is really easy, simply, warming and filling. It is easily made vegan and with the addition of more mustard to the sauce, a mustard sauce over leeks in a potato pastry is divine...
