    do you actually have to sift the dry ingredients when a recipe says to (i dont mean for kashrus reasons)


    Sifting keeps out the lumps and aerates the flour.


    You should. Sometimes sifted ingredients are different in volume than the unsifted, because and they get aerated when sifted, so you might actually need slightly more flour than you think. I.E., it may be that 1 cup of sifted flour, is not the same as 1 cup of flour, sifted. Read cake recipes very carefully, because it makes a real difference in the lightness of the cake.


    You might need less flour than you think.
