Hi,may I know what is low protein flour? Can I use plain flour?

Thank you.

Oh, its me again. If a recipe calls for whipping cream, is it the non diary or diary whipping cream? Normally what brand would you recommend if it calls for whipping cream also?

Thanks again.

Hi Alice,

"Low Protein Flour" is a weak or low gluten flour made from soft wheat. "Pau Flour", "Cake Flour", "Pastry Flour" are low protein flour. You can shift plain flour for three times before mixing if low protein flour is unavailable, but texture will not be the same.

Unless it is mentioned in the recipes as "non-diary whipping cream", diary type is used.

If for cake decoration or tarts, Rich's whipping cream is recommended. Always keep it in the fridge. Whip immediately, do not defroze it.

If i want to use the big mould, how about the baking time, is it the same?

Is the butter essence available in all ingredients shop?

Baking time (step no.2) for the tart shell depends on the thickness, not the width, therefore it will be the same. Baking time for step no.4 is the same.

Butter essence is available at baking ingredient shops.
