Jane, another welcome from me, Jeannette! I live in N.Wales, where are you? I have the US edition of the Cake Bible and have made SOME cakes from it but not as many as Annie, who I believe used to live in the US so is more an authority on American baking than I am! However, what I have made have been successful but I would like to be able to do a comparison with cakes made with the US cake flour to be able to form a proper opinion on them. I have been in touch with Kate, both by using her blog and recently on the telephone, she has done a lot of experiments using various flours, the microwave and also adding Xanthum gum to the mixtures, obviously she has spent a lot of time and some scientific expertise to reach her conclusions, I’m afraid I am not as well equipped or as patient to do as she has done, but i follow her experiments with interest. To follow all her work you can click on to her blog, you will find it on Rose’s website where she has a list of her favourites. It’s called ‘A Merrier World’ I hope you find all this interesting and look forward to reading how you get on with the recipes, please keep us informed! You will also find lots of help from others on this site, they quickly become like old friends!
