wholemeal flour

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

wholemeal flour

In the book and online Delia's recipe for Sticky Prune and Date Cake lists wholemeal flour but does not speicfy whether this should be self raising on plain. Which should be used?

Flours

I think most recipes specify if PLAIN flour should be used. Personally I would use self raising unless specified otherwise. The exception to this is N.American recipes where it's the other way round.
If there seems to be a bigger quantity than usual of raising agents go for plain.
Hope this makes sense

North American recipes very rarely use self raising flours, raising agents are added as a separate entity.
If the recipe in question specifies the use of bicarb and/or baking powder then you would use regular wholemeal flour, if it does not specify bicarb and/or baking powder then you would use self raising wholemeal flour, simple as that!

We used plain wholemeal flour in this cake. We are really sorry if it wasn't clear enough. Lindsey
