“Thought I could put dolphin in my fish pie. Until I noticed I was using all porpoise flour”

"All-purpose flour” (also called “AP flour") can be used for baking many things, although professional bakers usually use other flours. “Purpose” should not be confused with “porpoise,” but there are jokes.

“A joke I just made up: What does a dolphin bake with?...’All Porpoise Flour’” was posted on Twitter by Shawn D on August 7, 2020. “What does a dolphin bake with? All porpoise flour” was posted on Twitter by Erich Guebert on August 17, 2015. “What type of flour do dolphins use when baking? All Porpoise Flour!” was posted on Twitter by Steve Endow on March 3, 2019.

“Thought I could put dolphin in my fish pie. Until I noticed I was using all porpoise flour” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on September 19, 2015. “Thought I could put dolphin in my fish pie. Until I noticed I was using all porpoise flour” was re-posted on Reddit—3amjokes on December 22, 2020.

“All Porpoise flour is NOT dolphin safe” was posted on Twitter by Frankincense & Mers, Attorneys at Law on March 4, 2019. A dolphin-safe label is usually used for tuna.

“All-purpose flour has a limited number of uses” and “You cannot use all-purpose flour for all purposes” are “all-purpose flour” sayings.


Wikipedia: Flour
Plain or all-purpose flour
All-purpose, or “AP flour”, or plain flour is medium in gluten protein content at 9.5-11.5% (10-12% from second source) protein content. It has adequate protein content for many bread and pizza bases, though bread flour and special 00 grade Italian flour are often preferred for these purposes, respectively, especially by artisan bakers. Some biscuits are also prepared using this type of flour. “Plain” refers not only to AP flour’s middling gluten content but also to its lack of any added leavening agent (as in self-rising flour).

When a recipe asks for “all porpoise flour” and I’m nowhere near a fish market, what’s a good alternative? #QuestionsWhileBakingCookies

If you’re not sure if your tuna is dolphin-safe or not, try combining it with some all - porpoise flour.
