Cake Flour Substitute

Cake Flour Substitute created by gailanng

I don't always have cake flour on hand, and I'm betting many others don't either. I have discovered that this substitute works very, very well. Easy too, and it uses pantry staples!

directions

  • To make two cups of cake-and-pastry flour (cake flour), combine 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour with 1/4 cup cornstarch; proceed with your recipe.
  • The easiest way to do this substitution is to put 2 tbsp of cornstarch in the bottom of a 1-cup measuring cup, then fill the cup as usual with all-purpose flour and level top. Repeat process to get your two cups.
  • If you only need 1/2 cup of cake flour, put 1 tbsp cornstarch in bottom of 1/2 cup measuring cup, then fill and level as above.

    The best flour for making wheat free cakes is Rice Flour just add three teaspoons of baking powder and use for any cake recipe. Makes very light melt in mouth sponge.

    If you only need 1 cup cake flour, put 2 Tbsp corn starch in bottom of 1 cup measure then fill with AP flour.
