Some cake recipes call for cake flour instead of all purpose flour or maida, which is what we are all used to. So what is cake flour?
I have realised over the past few months that all these fancy-shmancy things they sell in specialty stores are very easy to make on our own (yes, I we can also make cinnamon sugar at home, trust me). Also, if you buy one pack of cake flour, you are left with the leftover and then need to go looking for more recipes that require cake flour.
Anyway, here’s you can make your own cake flour:
Measure out 1 cup of maida or all purpose flour
Remove 2 tbsp of flour from it
Add 2 tbsp of cornflour / cornstarch instead
Sift well (atleast 4 times)
Store in a container or use immediately for your cake recipe!
How easy was that?
