Farine à gateau- the make I buy is in a n orangy/gold packaging. Doesnt seem quite as "raising" as the british equivalant but the levure chemique seems to leave a "shop bought cake" taste to me when I use it as directed with farine de blégood cooking@+

Thank you so much for your help, I thought I was losing my marbles. That would explain it. Will purchase the satchet as you suggest.


Thanks again

I'm not sure that the french actually have 'self raising flour'...I normally use normally 'farine' and add 1 or 2 tsp of levure chimique. That seems to do the trick. Levure chimique can be found in the cake section normally under the cake decorations. The most common one comes in little pink sachets made by Alsa. (size of a credit card).

Good luck!
