    This is when you run out of cake flour. I use this all the time. No need to buy cake flour anymore.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 2

    Yield:

    Cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Measure out the amount needed for your recipe. I always measure out 6 cups of all purpose flour.
    2. 2
      For every 1 cup of flour remove 2 Tbsp of flour.
    3. 3
      Now add 2 Tbsp of Cornstarch for every 1 cup of flour. (replacing the tablespoons of flour taken out).
    4. 4
      Sift 5-6 times and it's ready-to-use cake flour.
    5. 5
      *To sift flour without a sifter just use a strainer by filling it with flour and tapping against the palm of your hand over a bowl.
    6. 6
      (left-over flour can go back in the bag).
    7. 7
      Always measure the flour that is needed after its sifted.

      My new mantra - I will never ever, never ever, purchase cake flour again! This worked wonderfully in a dark chocolate cake I made for a friend's birthday. I turned the cake into cupcakes and they were so light and fluffy and I truly feel it is due to the freshness of the cake flour. I had no idea but now that I know I'll never purchase it again. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe that will help save me time and money in my kitchen! Made for I Recommend Tag game.
