About This Recipe
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!"
3/4 cups all-purpose flour
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.
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.
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.
