You don't HAVE to, but it will give a better result if you do. Sifting helps to break up any clumps in the flour, removes any foreign bodies, but mainly puts air into the flour. This makes the mixture lighter and the product will rise better.

Sifting aerates the flour. It also helps the flour absorb liquid more evenly. It lets you measure flour properly by making the density at a standard level. Basically, its pretty important.

How can plain cream flour be made into self raising flour?


If, by cream flour you mean all-purpose flour, I found this on recipe.com:
combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour with 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

What do I put with plain flour to make S.R.Flour


Just add 2 teaspoons of baking powder for each 150g/6oz/1 cup plain flour. Sift the flour and baking powder together into a bowl before using, to make sure the baking powder is thoroughly distributed (or you can put both ingredients into a bowl and whisk them together).
Good luck

I do not have a sifter. What can I do instead when the recipe calls for sifted flour?


Use a wire mesh strainer. Put the flour in it and shake it side to side over a bowl.

Heavy dry wheat bread


You can try replacing some of the heavier wheat flour with some lighter sifted bread flour. (You'll need to sift the wheat flour too.) I use Splenda when I can to try to keep the calories and carbs down, but a small amount of molassas can help sweeten too. Try experimenting with different amounts until you get one you like. You might try using fruit juice for liquid; it can sweeten while mixing in the flours. Good Luck and have fun eating your experiments.
