Mr. Glen Oaks makes his brownies from scratch, he just uses the recipe on the Hershey Cocoa container. They are marvelous. We almost never use mixes anymore for baked goods. When recipes call for "cake flour" we use regular flour. I can't think of the ratio right now, it's +/- 2 tbs. I think, and sift the flour 2-3 times. Your cookbook will have a substitution chart for cake flour and all common ingredients used in cooking, usually where the chart for measure equivalencies are found. His cakes come out light and tasty, not "heavy" like some homemade recipes turn out. My mom says that many years ago before the advent of mixes cakes usually came out heavy and chewy, but not Mr. Glen Oaks'! He has the magic touch. Oh, and he swears by parchment paper for lining the pans and cookie sheets. I actually clued him in on that little trick. I think I discovered parchment paper from Martha Stewart recipes. You can also make little parchment paper pouches to bake fish with. Parchment Paper, it's a "Good Thing".

I Look Forward To Your Comments
