How to Make Cake Flour

I feel like it's been forever since the last time I posted. It's past the middle of January and this is my first post of the year. Yey! It's been almost a year since I started baking. And yes, I still feel like I'm a beginner.

Softasilk Cake Flour, 32-Ounce (Pack of 6)But anyway, due to my late post for 2011 and being Valentine's is the closest special celebration happening, I thought I'd share how to make cake flour. Why cake flour? It's the choice ingredient for Red Velvet Cake - a popular baked goodie for the occasion. It makes it light and fluffy with a tender crumb. 

Who ever has cake flour on hand when needed, right? Fortunately, it is so easy to turn all-purpose flour into cake flour. You probably already know how.

Here it is.

Yield: 1 cup


  • Bowl
  • Sifter
  • Measuring Cup
  • Measuring Spoon
  • 1 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 2 tablespoons Cornstarch

Take out 2 tablespoons of the All-purpose Flour and return it to your flour jar.

Put the remaining All-purpose flour on a sifter over a bowl.

Add the cornstarch.

Sift the flour and cornstarch together. Do this 3-5 times to be well incorporated.

There you have it cake flour.
