How to DIY Cake Flour
You don’t actually need pre-purchased cake flour to make light-as-a-feather pastries. Don’t concern yourself too much thinking about how much you have to spend. I’m sure that the baking shelf in your kitchen is stocked with just the right amount of baking basics and essentials. You just really need two common pantry items to make DIY cake flour at home.
Here’s what you need:
- All-Purpose Flour
Here’s how you make the DIY Cake Flour:
- Measure out 1 cup of all-purpose flour, then remove 2 tablespoons.
- Add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to the flour. Whisk them to combine well. Since cornstarch has less gluten than flour, it acts as a tenderizing ingredient to help make the cake flour.
- Using a whisk combine the 2 ingredients and pass it through the sifter at least twice. This double sifting process allows for the mixture to aerate so the consistency is akin to real cake flour.
It’s just an all-around easy to make cake flour on your own. Sounds simple, right? So, start making those cake flours, and start showcasing your cakes to the world.
