Hi Angie,
I just discovered your site and deeply regret why I didn't do so earlier!!! Your site is the best recipe blog I've seen (and I have looked at MANY!!!!). Thank you soooooooooo much for all your time and effort!
Just wondering, do you read chinese?!
Also, what is that German flour that you use? Can I substitute it with normal plain flour?
THANKSSS

There are a few kinds of German wheat flour I used very often in baking, for example, #405 with 9-11% protein, #550 with 10-11.5% protein, #1050 with 11-12%protein. And they can be substitued with any local flour of similar percentage of protein.
And YES, I do read Chinese.

Yes, it's wheat flour. As for the substitution, when doing a yeast bread, AP flour will be okay, but for foam cake, pastry flour would be more ideal, because if you use the American flours, the AP flour is about 12%, and its protein content would be too high to bake a light airy foam cake.
Yes, I am a Chinese. :-)
The baking moulds here are usually 26cm-28cm or 10-12 inch in diameter and 7-8cm in height. If you want to make an 6-inch cake, then you might cut down 1/4-1/3 quanity of the recipe. The baking time may change as well, so you might have to keep a watchful eye on the cake, and check for doneness, as you usually do.
