Substitute for Cake Flour

FILED IN: Tips and Tricks

Often I don’t have cake flour in my cupboard.  Wait, I always do.  But there the times when I run out and in the rush of children and baking and that pop-up shop that is in two days and the cheer banquet and the applications for Oldest Child’s college are due that I don’t have time to run to the store.  So this substitution will get you by in a pinch.

Take: 1 cup of all purpose flour, and pour into bowl.

Remove 2 tbsp flour and add in 2 tbsp cornstarch.


Voila! You have faux cake flour that you can use in recipes.
