I would like to know if I am the only lazy baker? Recently I have been missing out the sifting of flour. I know that our Mothers and Grannies were into the sifting method. I do use a tea strainer for baking soda/powders, ginger and cinnamon.
I think with the modern flours they only need a quick ruffle round with your hands or a slotted spoon. I sometimes put the flour into my mixing bowl and give it a quick whisk with the beater attachment.
I really don't notice any difference between sifted and aerated flour.

Hey Sylvia: I meant to respond earlier - I am also a lazy baker - but I must admit that I do like sifted flour - the feel is so much different. but I truly cannot tell any difference like you! I feel guilty when I see the Sifter sitting in the cabinet. But it can be wisked with a wire whisk and that puts some air in as well. Sue in NC
Had to search for a wine recipe and it turns out was one of your neighbour's grape ones. Please give him our thanks.
Be prepared for some disappointments. Katy my granddaughter has decided she wants to be a Baker. She is currently making plans for how she wants her mum's new kitchen to look. It looks a bit familiar... she even rescued my old wooden SIFTER from the throw aways. Wish we here in Scotland were into garage sales or even give-aways.

I'm going to tell Herschel that his wine recipe is World Wide now!!! Too bad you don't have garage sales and yard sales - they are so much fun to ramble through the junk. It is like finding old treasures in your attic!
