Have you ever had a recipe you really wanted to make and as you’re scanning the ingredients list you realize you have everything except for one ingredient? Yeah that happens to me, too. And it’s usually a yummy dessert that requires cake flour. Well today I have a money saving fix for you; a cake flour substitute recipe.
There’s no need to buy it at the supermarket, you can totally make your own cake flour! Here’s how:
Set a sifter over a medium bowl. Measure out 1 cup of flour and remove 2 Tablespoons of the flour.
Place the flour in the sifter and add 2 Tablespoons of cornstarch.
Sift and voilà, you have 1 cup of cake flour ready for your recipe!
- If you’re making a large batch of cake flour to store i suggest sifting the ingredients 3 times before storing in an air-tight container. This will ensure the cornflour is evenly distributed throughout the flour.
- The sifter that I use serves double duty as a strainer as well and comes in a set of 3 of varying sizes all for about $13. Here’s the set I have.
- 1 Cup minus 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
- Set a sifter over a medium bowl.
- Measure 1 level cup of flour. Remove 2 tablespoons of the flour and dump into the sifter. Add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and sift.
