They’re a young nation, give them another hundred years and they might catch up with the rest of humanity.I seem to recall many American recipes refer to all purpose flour (plain) and then requisite amount of baking powder, bicarb added.

Corrected for accuracy.I’ve just completed our weekly essential shopping at the local Tesco’s. I love this social distancing policy they have implemented. Controlled access and exit and ‘helpers’ advising people not to overstep the markers. No gangs of screaming uncontrollable pensioners. Very civilised - can we keep it when all this is over please?
Try it yourself and tell us what is was like. You could even film and put it on you.tube for us.On the subject of flour, would it be possible to just eat the flour powder directly, instead of cooking it into variegated forms like bread and cakes.
I mean one used to be able to buy packets of powdered mashed potato. "For mash get Smash"..
I used to wonder, why not just open the packet and consume the powder without messing about with adding boiled water. After all potatoes are mostly water. So couldn't you just eat the powder, then follow it with a drink of water?
