In making yeast breads it Is well to handle doughs lightly s h e advised, especially after they have risen once. The most Important thing is to avoid letting them get too light or to rise too long, she suggested letting llicin rise until they are Just doubled, but not more than doubled, as a good rule to follow. Although cakes made with this flour are not so velvety and delicate as those made with cake flour, or with white, all-purpoj>e flour, tiultc good 2-egg cakes, chocolate cakes and many other favorites may be made, she staled. Emergency flour will not keep as well as white flour, therefore, she advised homcmnkers to buy in quantities which will be used within a few weeks. Like all flour, emcrgccy flour keeps best when stored in a covered container in a cool, dry place.
