Chinese Steamed Cake

July 11, 2007

Some one please help! I want to know what is "cake flour"? Does this mean self-raising flour or plain flour? I used plain flour (the type with reduced wheat protein)which is not self-raising and added 1/2 teaspoon baking powder as instructed in this chinese steam cake recipe, but it did not work out as it did not rise, and was tough as rubber! Should I use self-raising flour? Or where did I go wrong. Please help to confirm wether cake flour is self-raising flour. Many thanks.
