I'm from Jamaica, and I've never heard the terminology 'counter flour' Is this the one you buy loose over the counter and if you're going to use it to bake you sift it a couple of times?

Yes. You have to sift it many times and sometimes also warm it in the oven to lighten it. Otherwise your cakes will be heavy like pudding.

Counter flour is the right flour for real hard dough bread

I’m trying to make oil roti (Guyanese style) here in Jamaica using counter flour. it’s hard - is it the flour? I usually use all purpose flour. Is it not the same?

Counter flour is not the same as All Purpose flour; its the same as Bread Flour- therefore heavier and contains more gluten.

One pound of counter flour is equivalent to how many cups of all purpose flour?
