What, pray, is "cake flour"? Self-raising flour, one assumes...but would be good to have confirmation.

Image was made by a friend who has given me his express permission via SMS to use it. Is that ok with you or should I ask him to apply for a patent? <_<

 

@vespa: When you want a brownie at 2 a.m. it's not that easy. :P

 

Oh wait, forgot about pumpkin :D

I think cake flour probably refers to 405, whereas all purpose is more along the lines of 550.

Used the normal flour, didn't bother to check for differences.

 

@vespa: my boss is the only one in the office with an A/C :angry:

Thanks for the recipe, k0be. I tried it and almost success. I didn't have cocoa so replaced it with Nesquik and didn't have oil so I replace it with margerine and my microwave only goes to 900W but actually 3 min. turned out too long because it was a bit rubbery and hard to chew. However tasted good. I will definitely try it again and watch the time next time.

no nearer microwave than london? :P tztztz

 

glad you liked it Leon. it's a quick fix for a hungry kid, a craving woman or just the sugar rush. also works well with unexpected guests :D

 

given how nesquik has loads of sugar added and margarine is lower fat, there's the cause. 2 minutes should be good with the same ingredients.

Cake flour in a nutshell has a lower protein level and has the least amount of gluten compared to other types of flour...what does this mean in real terms??? Its finer in quality and produces a yummy and smooth velvety texture to your bake goods!! (iain, you are correct, it is type 405 flour and I use it in place of all purpose flour, I love me some velvety texture)

 

and I love me some brownies, but seriouly...this recipe is repuslive :P Real brownies are very easy to make and no tacky mug is required!

 

Thanks for sharing...I needed a good laugh
