Name of flour.

Hi,

I know that Flour is called Un in Turkish, but can anyone tell me what they call self raising flour (for cake making) and plain flour for general use.

I am hoping someone can tell me the names, and where I can get this from - I am guessing most Bazaar's will have this.

Re: Name of flour.

Never buy self-raising flour; plain flour then add baking powder, amount at your discretion on how much you want the rise. Far cheaper and better!

Re: Name of flour.

There is no such thing as self raising buy small packets of raising agent called hamur kabartma tozu.

Re: Name of flour.

Hi
It's a while since I bought any but kek un is what u need ...they used to sell it at Migros but as everyone has suggested flour with added baking powder will have the same effect .

Re: Name of flour.

As beyazbayan says, they do not sell it here you have to make your own, or bring a few bags with you when you come; when you have baked all your nice cakes, buns etc., you can invite me round and I will help you polish them off. LOL.

Re: Name of flour.

I have a pack of Turkish selfraising flour in front of me, its Sinangil, kekunu, it lists salt and bicarb in ingredients and states, kabartma tozu kullanmayin, [do not use baking powder] on the front. This one is lemon flavoured, they also do plain and I think chocolate!
Im thinking a Victoria sponge, cream and jam, lemon flavoured!

Re: Name of flour.

If Sade is Plain Self Raising Flour then next question, where to buy?
