Make Your Own Cake Flour

Make this cake flour substitute if you run out and don’t want to make a trip to the grocery.

Cake flour is easy to make. Did you ever get ready to make a recipe that calls for it to find that you don’t have any on hand?   Here is a handy tip on how to make a substitute for it 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 in your recipe.   You can always make more and store in an air-tight container for future use in recipes.

Cake tips:  If you are looking to make a fluffy cake try using cake flour instead of regular flour for your cake.  A couple of tablespoons of sour cream added when mixing up your cake will help your cake to not be dry or dense.
