How to Make Cake Flour (Video Tutorial)
- Cake Flour Ingredients:
- 1 cup all-purpose flour minus 2 Tbsp
- 2 Tbsp corn starch
Measure flour by scooping it into a measuring cup and scraping the top off with the back of a knife to level it. Remove 2 Tbsp flour and return to your flour bin.
Add 2 Tbsp corn starch to your flour
Sift the two together about 4-5 times to make sure they are really well combined.
If your recipe calls for more cake flour, increase the ingredients proportionally; i.e. 2 cups flour (minus 4 Tbsp flour) with 4 Tbsp corn starch, etc.
The science behind cake flour:
Taking out some of the flour removes some of the gluten and the corn starch works as a tenderizing agent, producing a fluffy and super soft cake with a finer crumb.
