oh kylie, you struck the perfect chord with so many of us with your moist, orange citrus cake recipe.:) even i, who rarely bake, must have this one soon! what sort of sugar is needed for it, and, self-rising flour--that's not the same as all-purpose flour, or is it?

I think self rising flour has a tsp of baking powder per cup of flour.

thanks, alix. also, i read that a good substitution for caster sugar can be made by giving regular granulated sugar a few quick pulses in the fp.

Caster sugar is what we call Superfine. Or you can whizz it in the FP...if you got one for Christmas or was that an immersion blender Alix was missing?

V, caster sugar is the one to use, very, very fine granules and with the flour, our self raising flour is not plain flour (all purpose flour) so what you need to do is for each cup of all-purpose flour, add 1 1/4 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon of salt...then you will have self raising flour

When I think of self rising flour, I use cake self rising. Swans Down and Softassilk comes to mind. They come with and without the baking powder.
