Hi all,

Been unable to get self raising flour while shopping but I did manage to get sponge flour, I've never used it before but can it just be used when making a basic sponge cakes, fairy cakes etc?
And would I still need to add a raising agent like baking powder?

I use it like normal self raising so I do use baking powder. The sponge flour is a bit finer than regular SRF and rises really well and makes for a light fluffy sponge cake, my DC love it. I never but SRF anymore. I always add a tiny drop of lemon juice in case I add too much baking powder and can taste it. One of my pet hates.
