Est-ce que tu as de la farine?

In the question 'Est-ce que tu as de la farine?' , it sounds like you don't say part of 'Est-ce que'. Why is that?

This relates to:
Using du, de la, de l', des to express some or any (partitive articles) -

Bonjour Sophia !

The phrase "Est-ce que" is a typical example of the fact that in French we don't pronounce all the letters, like in English for example!
Also French people speak quite fast, sounding like even more letters are missing :)
"Est-ce que" would, if said slowly, sound like [essuh kuh], but pronounced at normal speed, simply [esskuh].

I hope that's helpful!
À bientôt !
