Hi there wise bakers,
Please do advise me. I would like to bake a birthday cake for my son who's turning one year old.
I found this recipe online of a Carrot-Apple Cake without any sugar. The recipe can be found here: http://homemade-baby-food-recipes.com/healthy-first-birthday-cake-recipes-sugar-free/
Now, the recipe calls for 2 CUPS OF WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR and it also calls for 1tsp of baking powder and 1tsp of baking soda. However, I only have WHOLE WHEAT BREAD FLOUR or SELF RISING WHOLE WHEAT FLOUR.
My questions is: WHICH FLOUR TO USE?
Will the bread flour not be too heavy for a cake?
But when I opt for the self-rising whole wheat flour, would I still need to use the baking powder and baking soda?? If yes, in what quantities?
Please enlighten me as I am a terrible baker and would really like to ensure that this birthday cake is not another epic failure :-)
