    Thank you so much. I rarely use cake flour and this is a great alternative to buying a whole box.

    Wow! Thank you so much, I dislike buying cake flour because I use it so infrequently. What a great idea!

    Cake flour is NOT simply AP flour & cornstarch. Cake flour is ground finer and then bleached to weaken the protein, resulting in a lighter flour with a much lower protein content than AP flour. While this method could pass for a temporary alternative, it most certainly won't produce the same results as cake flour and it's irresponsible to try and pass it off as the same thing.

    Technically speaking, if you add cornstarch, you're reducing the protein, aren't you. The only thing that should be emphasized in the directions above is that this should be run through a sifter 2-4 times to fully incorporate the cornstarch.

    it's irresponsible to try and pass it off as the same thing.
    Wow, StephMc- it looks like you're a new member, did you join just to berate a recipe?

    It's a "Substitute Recipe" meant to help save money nobody expects it to be the same thing, just like the Copycat Hooters Wings, you don't see all the guys complaining because they aren't served by cute girls in orange shorts with skin tight tank tops on!

    Don't take life too seriously, nobody gets out Alive.

    No one was trying to pass this off as cake flour. They were just trying to help us save some money by not having to buy cake flour. Most people already have flour and cornstarch in their homes already. I love this site. It will save me a lot of money. Open your eyes.

    I love to bake and am reasonably particular about the quality of what I serve my family. If I was making a wedding cake then I would spend the extra money for the real deal. For everyday deserts where I know a horde of hungry kids are going to devour every crumb then this will do nicely. Thanks for making this information available. Every Penney counts at my house.

    It is great in a pinch or to be frugal. Cake flour, I believe is made from soft spring wheat that has a lower protein than hard winter wheat. Pastry flour is definitely from soft wheat. Tips like this are great because if you don't use it often why pay the higher price and have it sitting around?
