Ingredients

6 cups all-purpose flour (white or wheat)

12 tablespoons cornstarch ( 3/4 cup )

Directions

Measure out the amount needed for your recipe. I always measure out 6 cups of all purpose flour.

For every 1 cup of flour remove 2 Tbsp of flour.

Now add 2 Tbsp of Cornstarch for every 1 cup of flour. (replacing the tablespoons of flour taken out).

Sift 5-6 times and it's ready-to-use cake flour.

*To sift flour without a sifter just use a strainer by filling it with flour and tapping against the palm of your hand over a bowl.

(left-over flour can go back in the bag).

Always measure the flour that is needed after its sifted.
