Did you ever get ready to make a recipe that calls for cake flour to find that you don’t have any on hand? Here is a handy tip on how to make a substitute for cake flour in a recipe. Many of you probably already know this but we can always share with others that may not. Cake flour is good for pie crusts, pancakes, cookies and cakes where you want a light, fluffy texture.
Start with 1 cup all-purpose flour and remove 2 tablespoons. Substitute the 2 tablespoons of flour you removed with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Whisk together to mix well or sift 4 or 5 times. Use this as a substitute for cake flour. You can always make more and store in an air-tight container for future use in recipes.
