How to Make Cake Flour | Food Storage Recipe

Many basic baking recipes call for using cake flour. You can make your own cake flour from scratch using cornstarch. Simply measure 1 cup of flour, remove 2 teaspoons of flour from 1 cup measure, replace with 2 teaspoons of cornstarch. Sift five times. This is the way my grandmother made “soft flour” and this is the way I make it. It works for my baking dishes.
