Does flour go stale?

Bethwick | Jun 1, 2009 08:09 PM

I made a layer cake this weekend using cake flour that is a year old. The cake tasted fine the first day but now has a stale taste. The recipe has a high egg/flour ratio, could it be the eggs sitting at room temp (in Seattle not very high) that have given it the stale taste?
