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.

Excellent cake flour sub-- though for ultimate laziness since I don't feel like getting my strainer dirty...I just put the cornstarch and flour (spooning it into the measuring cup-- as putting the cup into the flour bag just packs it in and makes it dense; gently spoon it out!) into a bowl and stirred with a fork to disperse the cornstarch, and it worked just perfect. If you're allergic to corn, potato starch and arrowroot powder also make good "softeners".

I like to use cake flour in some of my low-fat muffins, because it helps keep them less dense, and on Lalaloula's recommendation, I decided to try this. It works! And is easy and cheaper!!! Thanks for this helpful tip!

This is an easy to remember recipe. It worked well for me. The more times you sift the flour, the better.

Great money saving recipe. Thank you! I never want to buy cake flour because it's so expensive. I end up avoiding recipes that call for it. Now I use this recipe and just go for it when the recipe call for cake flour.

This post is great! I never use cake flour because I only ever seem to buy when a recipe specifically says to use it. I never knew the great things cake flour could do for my baked goods. I will definitely be giving this a shot. I'd love see more posts like this. Thanks for sharing! http://www.juiceblendz.com/
