comment Is cornstarch and AP flour really a good substiture for cake flour?
@Jolenealaska: Angel Food has so much protein in it (egg whites are pure protein), I'd think the type of flour would be redundant ;)...The King Arthur AP flour version (kingarthurflour.com/recipes/traditional-angel-food-cake-recipe) is virtually identical to the traditional cake flour version (and KA flour is very high in protein). I don't think I'd add cornstarch for AP Angel Food: all those eggs, and the cream of tartar should cover the difference in protein between normal AP and cake flour.

comment Is cornstarch and AP flour really a good substiture for cake flour?
@Mien: You'll notice a difference in proportions, in the recipes. Cake tends to have a much higher proportion of fat to flour than bread does. And all that kneading is for gluten formation: bread is mixed far more than cakes or quickbreads. If your bread tends to be crumbly and lacking in structural integrity, might want to look into a higher protein flour...On the other hand, if you can't chew it, might want to go the other way ;)

comment Some batter falls off during deep fry
My first thought was that the onion should have been shaken in some dry ingredients before the first dunk in the wet batter, and that's also what I see in the recipe. That could definitely be the culprit.

comment Why does my Wonder Pot now bake unevenly?
It's such a simple item, it's hard to think what could be wrong with it that wouldn't be obvious. Have you checked your stove?

comment Are there any health issues related to eating blue cheese often?
@joe: Mold is a fungus, not a bacteria. Unlike bacteria, there are no symbiotic fungi in the human body. However, we eat fungus all the time and there is no evidence to suggest that the Penicillium in blue cheese is any more toxic than your basic button-top mushroom.

comment Is there any danger to letting food cook in a slow cooker for a very long time?
@lawtonfogle It'll spoil from over-cooking, if you're keeping it hot for days at a time. Shouldn't be any bacteria though.

It's a cream cheese pound cake (marthastewart.com/315556/cream-cheese-pound-cakes), not a cheesecake.
