Cake Flour

Cake flour is one of those baking ingredients that’s just unusual enough that we don’t all stock it in our kitchens. So, what do you do when you don’t have it on hand?

Luckily, making your own cake flour is quick and straightforward. Have regular flour? Corn starch? Add them to a sifter and you should be good to go.

Joy Wilson of the popular cookbooks and the Joy the Baker blog walks you through the steps, so visit her cake flour tutorial to get started.
