Cake flour is a finely milled, very low protein flour (usually 8 to 10% protein levels) that is used for cakes. It is also bleached and produces cakes that rise more with a fluffier, tender texture.
Cake flour is NOT “self-raising flour,” and it is NOT “sponge flour.” The closest thing would be “plain flour,” sifted with a little cornflour to help reduce the protein content. In other words, most cake flour does not contain raising agents so is not self-raising.
To add cornflour – for each cup of plain flour remove 2 tablespoons of flour and replace this with 2 tablespoons cornflour. Or in metric terms use 105g plain flour plus 20g cornflour per 125g flour in the recipe.
Finally, when you add the Nutella to your pancake batter, be sure to just swirl it into the mixture. Don’t mix it in too enthusiastically or you will lose the dramatic swirly effect.
