How to make Cake flour

Type 'Cake flour' on Google and you'll get so many links on how to make it with just 2 ingredients in your pantry.Or if you are lucky enough to spot it in your supermarket,nothing like it.Then why am I posting a well-known how-to on my blog.Well,I am making a cake which requires Cake flour and I don't get to buy it off the shelves here and have to make it on my own.Might as well tell you people how I went about it!

As I said,you just need two ingredients.All purpose flour and cornflour.


Measure out 1 cup of all purpose flour.


Remove 2 tbsp from the measured flour and 

add 2 tbsp cornflour*.


Sift together for 3-4 times so that both the flours are mixed well.There,you have your cake flour.Now go bake the cake and eat it too!!

*I ran out of cornflour,so substituted it with Vanilla flavored Custard powder.Did that make any difference to the final product,ie the cake I baked?Stay tuned and I'll let you know;)
