This worked like a charm! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful money-saver of a recipe with us, XAbbbyy!
Made and reviewed for PAC Fall 2011.
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".
needed in a pinch. only needed 4Tb or 1/4c..... worked out nicely as you add 1/4c flour and 1/2Tb cornstarch. thanks!!!!
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!
Thank you so much for sharing I have often wondered what the difference was between the two.
This is an easy to remember recipe. It worked well for me. The more times you sift the flour, the better.
This recipe was so very helpful thank you so much
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/
