Initially when I started out, special name for a flour was always a deterrent as in India you don’t get varied flours in regular stores and in Gourmet stores they are way too expensive to justify using them.

So when after some googling I realised that making Cake Flour at home is like a ‘Piece of Cake’, pun intended, I was thrilled and have been making my own for a while.

I am sharing the recipe here which to my knowledge is uniform across all blogs/ web.

You can make it simpler by making a big batch – Amanda explains it here.

4 Tbsp ~ 1/4 Cup

Make 2 Cups of cake flour by removing 1/4 Cup flour and replacing it with 1/4 Cup Corn Starch.
