Different recipes call for different types of flour. It is best to use the type of flour that is mentioned in the recipe, such as bread flour for making bread and cake flour for creating cakes. If a recipe calls for all-purpose flour and you only have cake flour or pastry flour, don't worry as cake flour and pastry flour can be substituted for all-purpose flour. One cup and two tablespoons of cake flour is equivalent to one cup of all-purpose flour.
