I have just read your recipe for Irish Apple cake it looks delicious.I am Australian and over here we only have plain flour and self raising flour so I am a bit confused which one is cake flour. Normally if we use plain flour for cakes we would have to use baking powder as well. We are caravanning at the moment but would like to try it when we get home.

Hi Pam – Australian plain flour will work best. In America cake flour is made with a softer wheat than their regular all-purpose flour. Cake flour is not available in Australia, but you won’t need it. Regular Australian flour is very similar to Irish flour. The wheat grown in the US has a harder husk than Irish or Australian wheat, so when baking Irish recipes in the US I choose my flour carefully. I spent some time in Australia many years ago, and my Irish baking turned out great with the soft flours you have available there. Happy baking! Mairéad

I’m Irish-Scottish American, and can’t wait to make this recipe! Fall is creeping in now, and it’s nice and cool for baking. Thanks very much, Irish American Mom! I’ve shared this recipe on Facebook, and so look forward to receiving your new posts.

Thanks for following Susie. I hope you enjoy this cake. It’s perfect for fall when apples are plentiful. All the best, Mairéad
