Cake Flour vs All-Purpose Flour:

The biggest difference when it comes to these types of flour is the texture or end result of what recipe you are using it for. How fine flour is will tell you how much water it is able to absorb. Cake Flour is finer than All-purpose flour, which makes the texture more moist and tender compared to recipes that use All-purpose flour. Lower protein is found in cake flour that results in less gluten and less gluten results in a softer, fluffier texture.
