Cake flour has a lower protein content compared to all-purpose flour, which helps to prevent overdeveloped gluten in the batter. Cake flour is commonly used in baking recipes that require a tender, delicate crumb, such as cakes, cupcakes, and other baked goods. It is also often used in combination with other flours in recipes to achieve specific texture and structure.
