Tip for not having to sift the flour

“Add 2 cups of sifted flour to the mixture”. This phrase is very common when we read a recipe, but … Is it really necessary to sift the flour? Not always.
This is a measure so that you have more air incorporated into the mixture – usually cake – and, therefore, more softness (be careful, because some recipes do not want that air!). So, instead of sifting each time you prepare a cake, take a wooden spoon and stir the flour jar very well. This will be enough to aerate everything.
If you are still not convinced that the flour is ready and full of air, don’t worry. Do you know fouet, our dearest friend in the kitchen? Then, as it is full of hoops, the flour passes between them, gains this aeration and pimba! It’s “sieved”. Using a metaphor similar to Joy The Baker, using a fouet is killing two birds with one stone. The flour is aerated and the dry ingredients are mixed together (when you need to put it in the bowl before adding it to the liquids, you know?).
