Today is World Flour Day, a day to celebrate all of our favourite baked goodies and the ingredient that we come across most often in all of them.
Flour is one of the most common ingredients because of how versatile it is. From wholemeal to plain, self-raising, and even cake flour.
So, for all of the professional, aspiring, and even beginner bakers out there (because what better day to start!) here are some classic bakery treats to use all of that flour in.
Of course, this is the one to start off the list. Bread comes in so many varieties, shapes, and sizes that there is something for everyone. Brown, white, soda, wholemeal and so much more.

Let’s not get into the debate of how to pronounce this word (but for the record it’s sc-oh-n). These are a delightful, and malleable, treat. You can have them with butter for your breakfast or lunch, or have them with cream and jam for dessert. Scones are another staple of the baking world that can be manufactured to anyone’s taste. Try adding fruit or even cheese to your next scones.

Do you prefer a middle piece or a corner piece? There is a right answer. Brownies, or blondies if you prefer no chocolate, have to be one of the most popular baked goods. Some like them plain, others like them iced, or meet in the middle and just have a light drizzle over your brownies.
